Personal Injury

Personal injury refers to serious or catastrophic physical or mental harm, permanent disability or death caused by the negligence or wrongful acts of another person. Categorized according to type of accident, injury or liability, personal injury cases arise from toxic substances, boating and maritime, car, truck, motorcycle, and construction site accidents and defective products as well as medical and other professional malpractice.

When personal injury results from the wrongful conduct of another, that person or business may be legally responsible and may be required to pay compensation. To determine responsibility, the court looks for negligence – carelessness by one of the parties involved. Whoever is determined to have been more negligent is legally responsible for at least part of the damages incurred. Compensation is generally awarded based on the strength of documentation and degree of injury.

If you are seriously injured or someone you love dies from injury caused by someone else’s wrongful conduct, it is important to retain an experienced personal injury lawyer.
