Personal Injury Legal Representation


        Nobody likes getting hurt. For those out there who derisively scoff when someone has been injured, thinking that they must be “lucky” to have the opportunity to receive a settlement for their injuries, I offer to let them live in their shoes for a day. Let them deal with the constant, throbbing pains and the emotional struggles. Let them go through surgery, recovery, and the time lost at work and with their family. In fact, I’m sure that any injured person would trade places just to not have to endure what they went through.

But, no one can turn back time. When someone gets injured, filing a personal injury claim can be their best recourse to express and receive compensation. Nobody chooses to get injured, but when it does happen it’s best they review what their options may be should they then decide to proceed with a personal injury claim.

Getting Compensation For Your Injuries

Personal Injury lawsuits are a form of Tort law, which refers to one party unfairly committing a tortious act against another, resulting in loss or harm. The person or entity who has committed this act, in the legal system referred to as a tortfeasor, will have a legal liability for any of the damages they caused. Torts do not fall under criminal law, meaning that there is no criminal penalty for these actions. But, a victim is allowed to recover their damages through a form of monetary compensation. In personal injury cases, this means that an injured person can make a claim for areas such as medical expenses, lost wages, future earning capacity, and any out-of-pocket medical expenses. Claims for compensation can also be made for non-physical issues relating to the injury as well, such as pain and suffering or emotional damages.

Other Areas Which a Claim can be Made

Personal injury lawyers can help ensure that their clients receive the maximum amount of damages recoverable by law. Some of the items for which injured parties are legally entitled to compensation include past and future lost wages; past and future medical expenses; damages for both physical and emotional pain and suffering, again both past and present; and damages for disfigurement.

Sometimes, a close family member of the injured person, such as his or her spouse, may also be entitled to damages, often referred to "loss of consortium damages," which are intended to compensate the loved one for the loss of the injured party's services and companionship.

While there are many people injured every single day, not everyone who visits the emergency room is entitled to make a personal injury claim. Personal Injury Claims are filed on the basis of the overall impact of the injury onto a person’s life. The law limits Personal Injury claims to those who have been permanently injured as a result of another person’s negligence, who are then allowed to make a claim against those who have caused their injuries.

Besides the undue burden of pain and suffering incurred, getting injured can be very damaging economically as it leaves a person unable to work or work at full capacity. The average incapacitating injury causes over $70,000 in economic damages to a victim. But, it’s important to know that if you’ve been hurt you could have the right to seek a recovery for your damages. That’s why, before undergoing a personal injury case, we recommend taking some time to read about what you can expect if you decide to pursue your claim.
