Victims of Personal Injuries
After a car accident, dog bite, slip and fall, or other injury, it’s only natural to be confused or frightened. You have been injured, perhaps seriously, due to an action that was no fault of your own. You might be looking at painful weeks and months of recovery, or your life might never be the same again. And you are certainly facing mounting medical bills, perhaps paired with lost income because you cannot work.
Personal injury law provides that persons injured through the fault of others are entitled to full compensation for their losses. In a typical personal injury case, an injured individual is entitled to damages for:
- Lost wages
- Lost or diminished ability to earn wages in the future
- Past and future medical care for treatment and rehabilitation
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Punitive damages, in egregious cases
The important thing to remember in personal injury cases is that most of the time, you are not directly dealing with the person who caused the accident. You are dealing with their insurance company. While an individual may want to make things right, insurance companies cannot stay in business if they make too many payouts. They have entire teams of lawyers dedicated to denying or reducing the claims of people like you.
After a personal injury, you may not know what to do or where to turn. You may not even know if you have a case.
If you find yourself in these circumstances, we urge you to immediately seek legal counsel. Most personal injury cases have no upfront cost for representation, most lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we will not charge an attorneys' fee unless we win your case.
