Personal Injury Law

Personal injury occurs where you have suffered some form of injury, either physical or psychological, as the result of an accident or negligence. Most personal injury cases fall under the category of a tort. A tort is a wrongdoing that results in injury to another person or damage to property.The difference between a tort and a crime is crimes are punishable by the state in criminal court, whereas torts generally allow individuals to seek compensation for their injuries in civil court.

When someone is a victim of personal injury as a result of an accident or negligence, it often is accompanied with emotional and financial stress. Thousands of victims get less than they deserve for their personal injury settlement, simply because they don't know how to value their injuries, determine liability, and deal with insurance companies properly. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney will insure you are properly compensated for your losses.

Personal injury cases are typically handled on a contingency basis, which means the award, if any, is paid at the end of the case and both the attorney and the client are paid at that time. As a client of personal injury case, you may be required to pay costs up front.
