FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
What is personal injury?
Personal injury applies to a range of accidents, injuries and wrongful deaths caused by the negligence of others and may include motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall injuries, medical malpractice, harm from dangerous or defective products or drugs, on-site work injuries and a range of other dangerous practices or situations. Victims of personal injury may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and the resulting emotional pain.
Why do I need a lawyer to make a personal injury claim?
When you or someone you love is injured in an accident, you may be faced with overwhelming questions about what to do and where to turn. Your life and the lives of those who depend on you can be instantly changed and you may be faced with expensive medical bills and lost wages.
If the accident was the result of another person or company’s negligence, you may have rights to recover financial compensation resulting from your injury. You will likely be contacted by insurance companies and opposing attorneys seeking to settle or close out any claims you may have. Often their goal is to resolve the issue quickly with minimal costs.
