Personal injury in a legal context means harm suffered because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. If the negligent person can be proven to have been negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, and lost income, among other damages.
Our trusted attorneys bring over 30 years of skilled legal experience with them to the firm – experience that has helped countless former clients achieve their goals and pave a way towards a better future for themselves.
There are two ways of resolving a personal injury case:
- A formal lawsuit, which involves civil court proceedings to find someone legally at fault and responsible for the personal injury
- An informal settlement, which avoids a court case by negotiating a resolution
Informal settlement is more common when the party at fault wishes to settle without a lot of publicity or costs beyond the agreed-upon amount of the settlement.
A formal lawsuit occurs when a private individual files a civil complaint against a defendant, which could be a person, business, corporation, or government agency. The personal injury complaint is filed alleging that the defendant acted carelessly or irresponsibly, resulting in the accident or injury. Court proceedings are initiated to determine whether the defendant is legally responsible for the injury, and if so, what restitution they are required to pay.
In an informal settlement, the resolution is reached with the approval of the injured, the accused, their insurance companies, and the attorneys all agreeing on the amount and form of compensation. The steps involved are negotiation, written agreement, and then payment.
Your attorney will work with you to determine which type of personal injury case you have and how it can be settled to your satisfaction. In some cases, mediation and arbitration may be recommended as a means to an agreement. If no agreement can be reached through these methods, your case may go to court.
No one is prepared – emotionally or financially – to be injured in an accident that can force them to miss days, weeks, or months of work. Not only do victims miss out on wages they need to pay their bills, but they also may be facing medical expenses that can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars. Our attorneys can help you avoid falling into debt by pursuing financial compensation on your behalf.
When we file your claim, we aim to recover the following damages:
- Medical bills, including the costs of surgeries, hospital stays, medications, physical therapy, and other costs
- Lost wages and future earning capacity
- Property damage, such as car repairs
- Pain and suffering
Though you may feel alone in your pain, our lawyers can remind you through our tireless legal support that you have a team willing to fight for your future.
