What’s Considered a Personal Injury Case?

​Any losses sustained as a result of an accident, someone else’s negligent actions, or criminal behavior may be considered in a personal injury case. This can include medical malpractice, car crashes, product liability, slips-and-falls, dog bites, and premises liability. The person making the claim is called the “plaintiff” while the person, group, or entity against whom the claim is made is called the “defendant.”

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Several types of claims are included under personal injury law, including:

  • Vehicle crashes: Car crashes, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, hit-and-run accidents, and truck collisions can lead to major medical expenses, property loss, and emotional trauma. If you have suffered injuries or a loss as a result of a car crash that was someone else’s fault, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim.
  • Dangerous conditions: Property owners have a duty of care to maintain their property and ensure the safety of their guests, clients, or other visitors. When dangerous conditions on a particular property lead to someone else’s death, injury, or other loss, the property owner can be held liable for their expenses.
  • Workplace injuries: Construction and industrial accidents, catastrophic events, and vehicle crashes can all lead to personal injuries and death at the workplace. Employees can also be hurt through normal daily activities, which can lead to repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and back injuries.
  • Dog bites: Dogs are to blame for millions of bites a year in the U.S. alone, and a substantial percentage of these injuries require medical treatment. In serious cases, a dog bite can even lead to catastrophic injuries, long-term disability, and physical disfigurement as well as emotional trauma.

What Damages Can I Recover?

Monetary compensation after an injury caused by another party or entity’s negligence or reckless behavior can include not only payment for your economic losses, such as your medical bills and the cost of replacing destroyed property, but also non-economic damages, such as emotional distress, loss of companionship, and loss of enjoyment of life.

The cost to rebuild your life after a catastrophic accident resulting in injury can be extensive, and it may include expenses you weren’t prepared to face, such as the cost of rehabilitation or a long-term care nurse. Our personal injury attorney represents injury victims like you, and we passionately pursue compensation on their behalf to ensure the brightest possible future.

Personal injuries can include numerous types of injuries, including:

  • Soft tissue damage
  • Burns
  • Dislocations
  • Fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal damage
  • Birth injuries
  • Death

You may be left with emotional trauma, sky-high medical bills, disfigurement, and a life you didn’t expect and don’t recognize. Legal advice from our skilled personal injury lawyer can help you get back on track and restore your well-being.

At our law office, we understand the laws surrounding personal injury cases, and we know how insurance companies operate. Many insurers offer early settlements to accident victims, but these settlements often don’t include all expected losses. The companies are working not for you but for their shareholders. Paying out the smallest possible amount protects their bottom line, and they do this by denying valid claims, focusing blame elsewhere, withholding compensation, and other tactics. The process can be complex and intimidating for people who are simply trying to be made whole again after an incident.

Our personal injury attorney is on your side. We can evaluate your claim, investigate your accident, and negotiate with insurance companies to obtain a fair settlement.

Proving Your Personal Injury Case

When it comes to personal injury cases, it’s not always enough to prove that you were injured by someone else’s actions. You also need to prove they were legally liable. This means that our personal injury law firm needs to be able to prove that the defendant had an obligation or duty of care and that the defendant failed to meet this obligation, which resulted in your injury. In a few cases, the law simply states that people should be accountable regardless of wrongdoing or negligence. This is called strict liability.

We’ll work with you to better understand the specifics of your case as we fight for the compensation to which you are entitled. We will gather documents, records, accident reports, statements from witnesses, and other evidence to demonstrate the underlying cause of your injury, the extent of the harm you suffered, and the at-fault party.

Resolving Your Personal Injury Case

With a preponderance of the evidence, we can support your case and achieve a fair settlement. You are entitled by law to be made whole, and while money cannot always restore what was lost, it can go a long way toward giving you the security of a financial safety net as you begin to rebuild your life. In other words, our car accident lawyer will negotiate on your behalf to help you achieve not just compensation but peace of mind.

Most personal injury claims are settled out of court. That means we negotiate with the insurance company. Insurance companies often lowball survivors in an attempt to protect their bottom line, but we’re here to protect you. We build strong cases with supporting evidence to prove not just liability but also the extent of your loss and its effects on your life. We’ll fight to ensure you can receive the full compensation to which you are entitled under the law.
