Types of injuries
Do I have a Personal Injury Claim?
To determine if you are viable for a personal injury case, there are a few things you must be able to prove first.
Did you suffer an injury?
To bring a personal injury claim or lawsuit to court, you must have suffered a personal harm, whether it be physical or psychological. The term “injury” includes, but is not limited to, broken bones, herniated discs, back injuries, neck injuries, nerve injuries, slipping and falling and receiving a concussion in a restaurant, breaking your arm in a store, or severe insomnia, anxiety, and depression after a devastating automobile accident. Many times, these injuries result in extensive medical treatment, surgeries, paralysis and other problems.
Was the responsible party negligent?
To file your claim, your injury or injuries must come from the negligence of another person or entity, such as a government agency or business. This means that the person or entity acted in a careless fashion, caused your injury, and will be held responsible or “liable” for them. Negligence is defined as the failure to behave with the standard of care a reasonable, responsible person would have exercised under equivalent circumstances.
Are there recoverable damages?
Recoverable damages, be they financial and/or personal harms, can be remedied by monetary damages. If the entity or person acted in a negligent manner, the court or insurance company may award you a certain amount of money. These damages can be economic, such as lost wages and medical bills, or noneconomic, such as suffering, pain, and diminished quality of life. While economic damages are easier to calculate, noneconomic can be more difficult, which our team can handle and create reasonable estimates for your case.
Was the responsible party negligent?
Injury and accident lawsuits can take on numerous forms. Regardless of the specifics, the standard stages of your case will remain constant. See below:
