What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit occurs when one person is injured or suffers harm by somebody else who might be legally responsible for that harm.
In many situations, you would seek compensation from the responsible party’s insurance company. People carry insurance policies to protect themselves against this type of situation. Most personal injury claims come from:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Catastrophic injury
- Sexual Abuse
- Construction accidents
- Product liability

How Soon Should I Contact an Attorney?
You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. Not knowing what to do after an accident is not uncommon. Accidents can affect your day-to-day routine very easily. You might have doctor’s visits, surgeries, or even physical therapy. You may have to find someone to cover your shifts at work, help with domestic duties, and assist with child care. With so much to do, you might forget or not even know to file a personal injury claim. Its best to contact a personal injury attorney, so they can begin to work on your case.
What types of damages could I be entitled to?
There are two broad categories of damages awarded in a personal injury case, compensatory and punitive.
These compensate the claimant for loss, injury, or harm as a result of another’s recklessness. The majority of personal injury damages are, in fact, classified as compensatory. These damages are intended to make the plaintiff “whole” from a monetary standpoint. Common examples of compensatory damages in a personal injury case include:
- Medical Treatment
- Loss of Income
- Damaged Property
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment and/or Consortium
Consult with one of our attorneys to learn how we can ensure that you receive all the benefits you are entitled to.
Punitive damages are technically not awarded to compensate the plaintiff. Punitive damages are awarded as a way to reform or deter the defendant from pursuing a course of action.
