Contrary to what many TV shows place in their scripts, a good personal injury attorney doesn’t simply chase after ambulances or hound hospital patients for their signature on a dotted line.
If you believe you’ve suffered any form of injury or damage – whether physical, psychological, or emotional – as a result of another person or entity’s wrongdoing, then you have a case. These types of cases fall under civil law, which focus on punishments of monetary value without jail time at risk for the defendants.
A wide array of cases fall under the umbrella of personal injury law, including:
- Product liability (from a defective product causing harm)
- Repetitive strain injury (i.e. carpal tunnel, torn ligaments, etc.)
- Traffic accidents
- Workers compensation
- Asbestos-related issues
- Assault, in some cases
- Medical negligence
- Occupational stress or deafness
Damages from these types of cases can fall into two classifications, one which is more general and another which has specific, measurable costs to the injured person/people. Depending on what affects are felt by the accuser, damages can be awarded for loss of the ability to enjoy certain activates (such as a longtime golfer having both wrists broken) or losing the ability to work for an extended period of time – even for a full lifetime.
Personal injury cases also typically involve insurance companies, with provides additional legal channels to work through.
