A personal injury lawsuit may be necessary if you’ve suffered bodily harm, and someone else may be at fault. If only your property was hurt, like damage to your car in a wreck, and you were uninjured, then it’s a different sort of case. Your injury doesn’t have to be just physical. It may also include injuries to your mind or emotional state. The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to identify the people responsible for your injuries and make sure you’re fairly compensated for medical bills, lost wages, and other problems related to your injuries that can drag on for months or even years.
Common types of personal injury accidents include:
- Vehicular accidents (car, truck, bus, bike, boat, etc.)
- Spinal cord and brain injuries
- Animal bites
- Slip and fall
- Workplace accidents
- Construction accidents
- Assault and battery
- Fire and burn injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
In some cases, the responsible party’s insurance company will pay the necessary medical bills. But if they don’t, it’s time to call a lawyer. Your attorney can negotiate with the insurance company and their attorneys to reach an informal, out-of-court settlement that benefits you. If what you’re offered isn’t fair, your attorneys can instead take them to court.
