What is Negligence?
In order for a personal injury claim to be viable, the defendant must have acted negligently and negligence must have caused the plaintiff’s injuries. “Negligence” can include any behavior in which a person acts without considering the effects that their actions could have on the safety of others, or when a person is aware that a behavior is unsafe but acts that way anyway. The severity of negligent actions can range from mild cases of simple forgetfulness to severe cases, such as when a person drives under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
A personal injury case can focus on any incident in which a person is hurt because of another person’s negligence. As long as this is true of your situation, you may be entitled to file a claim and recover compensation. This area of the law covers a wide range of situations, from car accidents to defective product injuries.
We handle personal injury cases such as:
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Premises liability
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Product liability
- Wrongful death
Personal Injury Claim Damages
By filing a personal injury claim, you can receive compensation for the financial and non-economic damages that resulted from your accident.
Medical bills are usually the most significant financial damages caused by an injury.
Lost wages are another common financial damage in personal injury cases. A victim of injury may be unable to work and without a source of income while they recover. Through a personal injury claim, you can receive compensation for the wages you lost while you were healing from your injuries. It may be possible to recover other injury-related expenses too.
Personal injury claimants can receive compensation for non-economic damages as well. Non-economic damages are costs that are not tangible, such as pain and suffering. A personal injury settlement or verdict can include compensation that accounts for these emotional and mental effects of an injury.
