Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury law covers a variety of incidents. This area is not limited to car accidents, although that is where people make the strongest association with this practice area. Personal injury includes premises liability, birth injury, and even dog bites. Basically, any case where a person is injured from the intention or negligence of another is a personal injury case.

The process of collecting damages from personal injury starts with negotiating with the offending individual or their insurance company and could lead to a jury trial. There are also complexities that arise including the collection of medical records, fact finding, and filing lawsuits before the statute of limitations expire. During this time, you are also recovering from an injury, which is a challenging endeavor in of itself. You are likely also trying to balance work (assuming you can still fulfill your duties) with family time and hobbies.

That is why it works to your best advantage to hire a personal injury attorney. We can handle the negotiations, paperwork, and possible litigation while you focus on healing. You will remain in the loop during the process so your decisions are well-informed.
