What Exactly is a Personal Injury Case and How do I know if I have a Case?
A personal injury isn’t just a physical injury, but any injury to one’s body, mind, or emotional state. A personal injury can exist any time someone is harmed by the fault of another person or business. In general, one must prove a few main things in order to recover in a personal injury case: that you suffered damages, that the other individual or business was negligent, and that the other’s negligence caused your damages. Still, personal injury claims are extremely fact sensitive and when you meet with our firm we will review your case for FREE and explain your options.
What is Negligence?
The law requires individuals and businesses to act with "reasonable care". Negligence involves harm caused by the lack of reasonable case, i.e. carelessness, not intentional harm.
What are non-physical Personal Injuries?
Some examples of non-physical personal injuries include defamation, infliction of emotional distress, and invasion of privacy.
Defamation is a fast growing personal injury. Defamation is a false statement communicated, even negligently, to a third party that causes harm. It can cause you, your business or medical practice to be shamed, ridiculed, disgraced, or lowered in the estimation of the community. Get help today and understand your rights. Find out what you can do to combat defamation, including online defamation, with the help of attorneys who know and understand defamation law.
Infliction of Emotional Distress – If you have suffered severe mental or emotional distress as a result of someone’s actions know that the law can protect and compensate you.
Invasion of Privacy – The law can compensate you for some types of invasion into your private life and private information.
How Much is my Personal Injury Case Worth?
A multitude of factors figure into the monetary value of your personal injury claim. Some factors include the nature and extent of your personal injuries (physical and non-physical); the amount of your lost wages, loss of income to your business, medical bills, property damage, other financial losses; pain and suffering; and any present or future disability. Whether part of your injuries were a result of your own negligence could also be a potential factor in your case. Still, determining the value of your personal injury case is not a science and we can’t provide an exact dollar amount upfront. However, our firm can determine the strengths and weaknesses of your case and provide an honest evaluation. We will be truthful with you every step of the way.
What Should I Do if I think I am a Personal Injury Victim?
While seeking any and all necessary medical attention, you should create, if able, a record of the incident. Documentation immediately after an incident could help protect your potential claim. This could include filing a police report, obtaining witness contact information, taking photographs, and making a personal journal detailing the incident. Contact our office as soon as possible after your incident to get advice on how to proceed and protect your potential claim.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
Not all personal injury cases go to trial. Many cases settle before trial, but the likelihood of trial is dependent on several factors. Once we review, accept, and begin working on your case we will work with you and explain the advantages and disadvantages of going to trial.
How long will it take to bring my Personal Injury Case to a Conclusion?
Pursuing a personal injury claim is a process. We will work hard to resolve your case, but won’t rush to settle a case until we know the offer is fair to compensate you for your injuries and other damages. We will keep you updated every step of the way.
How much does filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit Cost?
Our firm does not get paid until you get paid. All of our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency basis.
When should I speak with a lawyer about my potential Personal Injury Claim?
Time is of the essence in dealing with personal injury cases. The law only allows a certain window of time in which to file a claim and once that window is closed you are forever barred from suing for your injuries. Furthermore, the longer you wait the higher the risk that important information is lost or forgotten. Call our office and speak with us while the incident is fresh in your mind.
Doctors have always held an important role in our society. Every single day, Americans put their lives in the hands of doctors and trust that their doctor will diligently work to provide the best medical care possible. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors and other health care providers are careless and cause injury to their patients. Medical mistakes often cause serious physical, emotional, and financial effects on patients. Medical malpractice mistakes happen and our firm offers free initial consultations to discuss your case.
We provide representation for Medical Malpractice including:
* Prescription Errors

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a term used to describe any type of medical treatment or lack of treatment, or even departure from acceptable medical treatment standards, that causes harm to a patient.
When should I meet with an attorney to discuss my potential medical malpractice action?
Immediately. Most medical malpractice actions must be brought within two years from the date of the alleged act, omission, or neglect. If you have a “gut feeling” that something is wrong, call us today!
How do you prove medical malpractice?
In most medical malpractice actions, the patient must show that the health care provider acted negligently and breached a duty of care. Typically, one must show that the health care provider owed a duty to the patient, that this duty was breached, that the patient suffered an injury, and that the injury was caused by the health care provider’s breach.
Our firm is committed to helping people who have been injured by a defective or dangerous product. Products liability law generally involves one or more of three types of defects: defects in design, defects in manufacturing, and defects in giving proper notice of the potential hazards of using a product. In addition, a faulty or defective product can be the subject of a breach of warranty or breach of contract claim.
Although virtually all consumer products are subject to the laws protecting consumers from dangerous or defective products, there are some major industries more likely to cause a major injury to a person, including:
Pharmaceuticals (including drugs, nutrition supplements, and immunizations)
Tools and Appliances
If you, your spouse, or your child have suffered a personal injury due to a defective or dangerous product, call our firm for a free case evaluation.
