Types of Personal Injury Claims
A personal injury claim can be brought against a third party that caused your injuries due to negligence, carelessness, or misconduct. To be eligible for compensation, your injuries must be a direct result of an accident that was caused by the misjudgment, inattention, or laxity of another party.
Motor vehicle accidents involving drunk drivers, distracted drivers, or those engaging in reckless behavior behind the wheel can cause serious and even fatal injuries. These injuries may require extensive medical interventions including surgery, prescription medications, and ongoing physical or cognitive therapy. The costs from this type of accident can be devastating to a victim and their family.
Slips, trips, and falls are common, but when a person is injured because another party failed to provide a safe environment that is reasonably free from hazards, the victim may have a valid injury claim. Uneven sidewalks, icy or snow-covered pavement, potholes in parking lots, or poorly lit walkways can result in broken bones, head injuries, and spinal damages. When these conditions are present due to negligence, the property owner may be liable for resulting injuries.
Recovering the Compensation You Need
Medical expenses, prescription medications, cognitive and physical therapy, and lost wages can quickly deplete a family’s finances, threatening them with the loss of their home or significantly reducing their quality of life. Financial compensation can enable victims to focus on their recovery without the worry that comes from the financial consequences of an injury.
Plaintiffs in a personal injury lawsuit can also claim damages for emotional pain, suffering, and even future lost wages that they could have earned had the injury not happened. Evidence is crucial. A qualified and experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to gather the medical records and other pertinent information necessary to claim the maximum amount of compensation available.
