Personal Injury
Personal injury lawsuits cover a wide range of claims including, but not limited to wrongful death, slip and fall, automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, defective or dangerous products, premises liability, dog bites, and more. Some ways you or a loved one may have suffered a serious injury or illness at the hands of another party may include:
  • An injury from a car accident
  • An injury from a semi-tractor trailer accident
  • An injury from dog bites
  • An injury suffered at work or an occupational illness
  • Tripping on loose floorboards or broken pavement
  • Injuries caused by a defective product you purchased
  • An injury suffered while on vacation (amusement park injuries, etc.)
  • Medical malpractice

Damages Recovered
There are a number of economic and non-economic damages that may be recovered in a personal injury claim. The amount of compensation you may receive is dependant on the seriousness and extent of your illness or injury and how it affects your ability to live a full and normal life. Compensation can be awarded for physical and emotional pain and suffering, lost earning capacity due to the injury, medical costs, and more. All damages may include present and future expected losses.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Any injured party may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against those who caused the harm. However, if the incident resulted in a fatality, the surviving family members may be able to file a lawsuit on behalf of the deceased. It is important to speak to a personal injury attorney who can evaluate your case and maximize your legal options.
