Personal injury refers to a legal action involving injury to the body or mind as opposed to an injury to property. A personal injury lawsuit generally alleges that the plaintiff’s injury has been caused by the negligence of another, but can also arise from other torts such as defamation. The damages involved in a personal injury lawsuit include all types of bodily injury as well as emotional distress.
A personal injury claim can arise from a wide range of situations, including:
If you are injured or involved in an accident, you may face substantial costs for medical treatment and related rehabilitative care. At the same time, you may be unable to work or produce an income at the time when you need it most.
We help our clients deal with this difficult situation by negotiating with the insurance companies involved and defending their rights in court if necessary. Personal injury victims who win or settle their personal injury claims may collect compensation for medical treatment, rehabilitative care, lost wages, future lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other related expenses.
