Personal Injury Legal Services
Personal injury law is the body of law that governs accident injury victims’ pursuit of compensation for damages suffered. It allows for financial recovery of physical and emotional damages. The right to recover on damages is based on the long standing principal that an innocent victim of another party’s negligence should not have to bear the burden of loss. Common examples of compensable items arising from a personal injury claim include, but are not limited to: physical injury from a negligent act or product, emotional suffering, past and future medical expenses and lost wages.

Am I entitled to compensation?
There are a number of factors that affect a plaintiff’s ability to recover compensation such as who is found to be legally responsible for the accident and damages. In some cases, the plaintiff or injured party may be found partially at-fault which will reduce the potential recovery. Many accident injury victims however, regardless of fault, do not receive a fair settlement or the compensation they deserve because they do not understand their rights under the personal injury claim process. For this reason, and many others, it is important to consult with a law firm that concentrates in the area of personal injury law to help navigate the complexity of a claim.
