Are you the victim of personal injury?

The first step when deciding to take action for a personal injury is to consider a claim or lawsuit. A claim is made with the insurance company for reasonable compensation for injuries sustained as a result of the insured’s negligence. For example, you may file a claim for compensation for a motorcycle accident. This is an informal process, and the resolution is decided upon by an adjuster from the insurance company. Some claims are not able to be resolved and require that the case be handled via litigation. A lawsuit does not only have to be filed against the individual insured but can be filed against an insurance company, a corporation or a government entity to recover compensation. This is a formal legal process and it calls upon the court or the jury to make a decision regarding the case. One might file a lawsuit for malpractice cases such as a surgical error.

There are several different reasons why you may make a personal injury claim. One of the leading causes of serious injury and death is car accidents. Sometimes these accidents are outside of anyone's control, but there are times when it is the direct result of the negligence of another individual. Whether due to distraction, drunk driving, reckless driving, or driving without considering hazardous weather conditions, they could be held responsible for what they have done. Other traffic collisions like motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are leading culprits in personal injury fatalities as well.

Premises liability is an area of law that protects victims who were injured while on someone else's property. Many people do not realize that property owners owe people on their property a duty of care, whether they are a customer, social guest, or even a trespasser. From slip and falls to dog bites, you could be covered under this law. We also have experience in medical malpractice cases. We rely on doctors and hospitals to do everything in their power to help us when our health is suffering. However, if they are negligent in their duty, it could lead to even more serious complications. For injuries resulting from misdiagnosis, mediation errors, or emergency room errors, please do not hesitate to contact us.
