Personal Injury

To help cultivate a better understanding of the type of case you might have, we have put together a list of the most common categories of personal injury.

Auto accidents

Depending on the severity of the accident, damages can accumulate quickly. This is especially true in cases involving pedestrian, motorcycle, and truck accidents, where injuries can quickly turn fatal. 

Unfortunately, without in-depth knowledge of insurance companies and litigation tactics, individuals often do not receive the compensation they desperately need.

Slip and fall

Similar to car accidents, slip and fall cases vary severity and damages, potentially creating unexpected medical bills and even a need for lifetime care.

Product Liability

When using a defective product, there is potential for injury to yourself or other third parties.

Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence

One of the more complicated types of personal injury, medical cases are in a class of their own. These are cases in which you or a loved one received medical care that was substandard, resulting in either an incorrect diagnosis, persisting problems, worsening conditions, and even wrongful death.

Wrongful Death

This class of personal injury cases deals with a loved one who died unnecessarily due to the performance, or lack thereof, of another individual.

Damages

The main purpose of seeking litigation is to receive compensation for your injuries. There are two types of damages you will encounter during the course of litigation:

  • fe_arrow-right

    Economic Damages

    This class of damages are those which have concrete monetary value. They include lost wages, medical bills, and reduced earning capacity. For many cases, these are the large majority of damages you will claim and have the highest likelihood of winning. 

  • fe_arrow-right

    Non-Economic Damages

    This class of damages are those which are not concrete and therefore more challenging to calculate. They include seeking compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of quality of life, and where applicable, loss of consortium.

While other forms of damages exist, which you are able to claim depends entirely on the details of your case. As such, an attorney is needed to help determine which course of action is right for you and which forms of compensation you can claim through the course of litigation.
