As members of our communities, individuals and corporations are obligated to obey the law and abide by certain standards of care to insure the safety and well being of others. When these obligations are breached and an injury results, the injured party may be entitled to compensation for physical and/or emotional injury, or for damage to property.
Personal injury claims arise from a variety of circumstances, including:
- automobile collisions
- medical malpractice
- wrongful death (e.g., drunk driver kills a pedestrian, doctor negligently causes a patient’s death)
- unsafe or defective products
- traumatic brain injury
- child sexual abuse, or
- hazardous conditions on public or private property
Remedies for personal injury claims are broad and may include compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, past and future medical expenses, disability and/or loss of a loved one.
In order to make a claim for a personal injury, you must have actually been damaged in some way. For example, if you slipped and fell because of someone else’s negligence, but were not injured, you would not be able to recover any damages. In addition, one must establish that the wrongdoers owed a duty of care, which they failed to uphold.
