Our Practice Areas
In the legal sense, personal injuries are emotional, mental or physical damage that a victim suffers in relation to an accident caused by the negligent actions of another person. The most well-known accidents involving personal injuries occur in dog bite attacks, medical malpractice, slip-and-fall accidents, assault and battery as well as injuries caused by defective products. The most common incidents resulting in personal injury occur in motor vehicles,with driving while texting rapidly on the rise.

Regardless of the scenario within which a personal injury may occur, the injuries themselves have similar characteristics in terms of broken bones, head and brain injuries, spinal injuries that may lead to paralysis, and even wrongful death, no matter what form of negligence was involved. Any injuries sustained in an accident will incur heavy costs in terms of medical bills and recovery, with permanent disabilities resulting in the need for lifelong medical care and treatment. Whether the injuries are serious or will only require weeks or months to resolve, filing a personal injury claim can help to recover the overwhelming costs that the negligent party is ultimately responsible for. If you have been involved in an accident that resulted in your personal injury, consider speaking with a skilled lawyer or see below for more information:
