Personal injury is an injury to an individual, and it can include damage done to the person or that person’s property, rights, or reputation by the negligence or intentional act of another. If you have been are hurt as the result of another person or company’s negligent, reckless, or intentional actions, you are entitled to recover for the damages that you suffered.
Personal injury can result from workplace accidents, motor vehicle accidents, faulty products, flawed medical treatment, or mishaps while the victim is on the property of another.
In many cases, the person or company that injured you may have liability insurance. This can be good and bad. It is good because it means that there is likely some money available to pay for your injuries. It can be bad in that many insurance companies would prefer to pay you less than you deserve.
If you have been injured in an accident, the attorney you choose is important. You want an attorney with the experience to vigorously protect your rights and the dedication to give your legal matter the time and attention it requires.
