Staying Prepared for Personal Injury Cases
A major reason for our success is our extraordinary level of preparedness. This is one of the most essential skills for an attorney. Without it, an attorney and their client can be surprised by the prosecution or other party.
This applies to all types of law, including personal injury law. Personal injury law is that area of law that applies to the injury of the body, mind or emotions of another, as opposed to property damage. It can be harm caused by the negligence of another or possibly intentional harm as in a defamation case.
Most commonly, personal injury cases involve:
- Vehicle accidents
- Work accidents
- Dangerous product injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
Medical malpractice cases also fall under personal injury where negligence by a doctor, psychiatrist or dentist resulted in harm or death to the patient. If you or a loved one has suffered personal injury from another's negligence, our firm stands ready to help you seek financial compensation for your injuries.
