There are many different types of personal injury accidents. Some of the personal injury cases we handle include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Slip and Falls
- Wrongful death
- Defective products
In personal injury cases, the negligence of another leads directly to an accident that leaves someone hurt. This negligence could be a specific action taken, or in some instances, not taken. Examples of negligence include: a speeding driver, a driver who runs a red light or disregards a stop sign, a trucking company that failed to properly maintain a tractor-trailer, and a property owner who failed to clean up a spill on the floor.
Personal injury accidents can lead to physical injuries, mental illness, diseases, and other medical problems. Some injuries are even fatal or result in permanent damage.
You could file an insurance claim or lawsuit to pursue compensation from the negligent party that caused your injury. Some of the losses you might be able to recover in a personal injury claim include:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Mental anguish
Insurance companies and their lawyers will go to great lengths to avoid responsibility to make sure you are compensated as little as possible if you are injured. They may suggest you were somehow at fault for the accident. They may make you a lowball settlement offer in an effort to make you go away or use delay tactics to motivate you to accept a lowball settlement.
