When you are injured in an accident that could have been prevented if another party had not acted in a negligent manner, you have the right to pursue monetary compensation for your related damages through a personal injury claim. In your claim, you must demonstrate the following:
What constitutes negligence in a personal injury case depends on the type of accident that occurred. In a car accident, for example, driving drunk and speeding are acts of negligence. With a medical malpractice claim, a doctor’s failure to follow up with the patient after surgery could be deemed an act of negligence.
Our team works with clients facing the following types of case:
Specifically, we are equipped to pursue compensation on behalf of victims who suffered brain injuries, scars and burns, and individuals who were injured in collisions that resulted from texting and driving.
When a victim dies in an accident, his or her loved ones may pursue compensation for their related damages as well as the victim’s estate’s damages through a wrongful death claim. Our team works with survivors pursuing wrongful death claims as well.
Through a personal injury claim, you can pursue compensation for the following damages:
Your lawyer’s job is to work on your behalf to secure an appropriate compensation settlement for your damages. He or she does this by negotiating with the negligent party’s insurance provider and obtaining and using evidence to demonstrate the points listed above. This evidence can include photographs of the accident scene and copies of your medical bills.
With most personal injury cases, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the injury. There are a few notable exceptions to this, such as a two-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases. Keep this limit in mind to determine whether you should file a lawsuit to pursue compensation for your damages instead of pursuing an insurance claim.
