What is Personal Injury?

A personal injury lawsuit involves injury to your body. It can also include property damage and economic-based damages, such as lost wages.

The major claim, however, is usually based on a physical, mental, or emotional injury. Personal injury claims fall under an area of the law known as “tort law.”

Most personal injury cases are the result of an accident, but they can be intentional as well. There are two major parts to every personal injury case: liability and damages.

  • Liability: This means that someone else is at fault or partially at fault for your injuries or damages.If this breach of duty caused you harm, you may be entitled to damages.
  • Damages:No matter what type of personal injury your case involves, our lawyers will not rest until you have received full and fair compensation for your injuries.

The theory that applies in your case will depend on how your injury occurred. Regardless, each case still requires these two very basic requirements.

Personal Injury Law

Accidents happen all the time. Because they are common, many people believe that getting compensation is a given, or that these are easy cases to win.

In reality, personal injury cases are among the most complex cases in our legal system. Getting a fair result requires skill, effort, and a firm commitment to making sure no one has to pay for another person’s carelessness.
