COMMON TYPES OF PERSONAL INJURIES

Negligence and a general lack of sensibility can cause the people around you to create unreasonably dangerous situations without warning. A teenager texting and driving could cause a car accident. A retail employee taking shortcuts could leave a spill unattended, leading to a slip and fall injury. Even medical practitioners can ignore safety precautions and harm a patient, triggering a medical malpractice lawsuit. All of these actions and more can cause you to suffer a personal injury, and each one can be grounds for a personal injury case.

We can handle all sorts of personal injury claims, such as:

• Burn Injuries
• Construction Site Accidents
• Defective Product Cases
• Premises Liability Claims
• Spinal Cord Injuries
• Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

COMPENSATION FOR YOUR PERSONAL INJURIES

Your injury is clearly going to cause undue pain and suffering but what does that mean in the court of law? How much financial compensation can you seek from those liable for your injury? The amount depends on a variety of factors, most notably the medical expenses required for your recovery.

We will want to pursue an amount that helps you pay for:

• Hospital Bills
• Further Rehabilitation Programs
• Property Damage (Auto Accidents)
• Lost Wages
• Reduced Earning Potential
• Funeral Expenses (Wrongful Death Cases)

Depending on the situation that caused your injury, there may be two unique types of damages you can also seek. Punitive damages can be used to further penalize someone who was committing a crime that led to your accident and injury, such as someone who was speeding and collided with your car. Nominal damages can be used in particularly stressful injury situations that are known to cause mental distress, such as amputations.

GATHERING PROOF TO BUILD YOUR CASE

As with all other forms of litigation, a personal injury case often boils down to what can be proven in court through solid evidence. After your injury or accident, you need to start immediately thinking about what can be used to your advantage, and what could be used against you. The truth is that anyone else involved in the accident is probably doing the exact same thing.

Keep these steps in mind after an accident to help ensure you get the proof you need:

• Call for help when necessary
• Take pictures of the scene, injuries, and damages
• Talk to eyewitnesses
• Get insurance information, if applicable
• Do not apologize or accept blame
• Retain an attorney
