Personal Injury

If another individual or business acts carelessly and it results in injury, you may be able to seek compensation through a lawsuit or legal claim. Careless is simply another word for negligent, which is defined as failing to do what a reasonable person would do, given a set of circumstances. For example, if an individual failed to stop their vehicle at a red light, as a normal person would, that person would be considered negligent and responsible for damages. These can include personal injuries caused by his actions for any pain and suffering, permanent injuries, disabilities, or even death.

In order for damages to be sought, an injury need not be physical. Such cases that involve being subjected to extreme emotional distress may also entitle you to damages. In the case of a death within a family, surviving family members can recover damages through wrongful death laws & litigation.

Although many personal injury cases only involve minor injuries, you may still be entitled to substantial monetary damages. Medical expenses, no matter how small they are, including hospital expenses, medications, personal therapy can be recovered. In addition, in cases of extreme negligence, punitive damages can be recovered to ensure the conduct is not repeated.
