Personal injury accidents occur every day, among which many could have been avoided without a negligent or at-fault party. The victims of these accidents may be left with life-changing injuries that come with physical, emotional and financial difficulties.
If you or a loved one is injured due to someone's negligence in an automobile accident, slip and fall, by a medical mistake, by toxic contamination, or by a defective drug or product, you may be able to recover damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit within the civil justice system.
The civil justice system is designed to compensate victims of negligence and to resolve other private disputes . Although there are rare cases in which a court can order that a defendant do something or stop doing something, the vast majority of civil cases request reimbursement of money damages for injuries suffered to person or property or to settle some other type of dispute.
The amount of money that an injured person, or his or her family, can receive in a personal injury lawsuit depends on how severe the injuries are and the magnitude of the damages that he or she has suffered or may suffer in the future.
Damages can include cost of medical care, wages that are lost due to the injury, or property that is lost. There are also non-economic damages in a personal injury case, which may include the injured person's pain and suffering or a loss in quality of life.
Being injured and dealing with a tragedy is never easy, but a tough situation can be even tougher if it is not handled well afterwards. If you or a loved one has been a victim of a personal injury accident, it is important to hire the right lawyer to protect your interests.
