Personal Injury Law involves civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. These types of cases do not involve the government prosecuting the wrongdoer. Rather, they occur when a private plaintiff seeks compensation for the harm caused by another person’s actions.
Personal injury cases are generally based on negligence. Examples of negligence include car accidents caused by drunk drivers or medical complications resulting from a physician’s carelessness. In these instances, the responsible party ignored the risk posed to others, and as a result, someone was injured.
Once negligence has been established, damages are calculated, such as property damage and medical bills. All of our attorneys are experienced in personal injury cases and they will seek additional damages on your behalf, when appropriate, such as loss of earning capacity or punitive damages. Furthermore, they can identify additional parties who may be liable for your injuries, depending on the specifics of your case.
