Do You Have a
Personal Injury Claim?
Car accidents, a slip and fall, defective products, premise liability injuries or medical malpractice can all cause personal injuries. If you have been injured from the negligence of another person you may be able to file a personal injury claim and receive compensation for your personal injuries.
Personal injury claims, such as personal injuries caused by car accidents, are often negotiated with the offender’s insurance company, but if the settlement offer does not cover the cost of your personal injuries or your claim has been denied, a personal injury lawyer can help. Personal injury lawyers can also help negotiate a fair settlement offer, or if needed, take your personal injury claim to court.

Winning Your Personal Injury Claim
Proving the defendant was at fault
Do you have a personal injury claim? Obviously, not all injuries are torts or personal injury claims. To win a personal injury claim you, the plaintiff, must prove the defendant owed you a duty of care, their actions breached their duty of care, this breach was the proximate cause of your personal injuries and you have suffered some type of loss.
If you win your personal injury claim you may be awarded, either by a judge or jury, compensation which can include compensatory damages such as lost wages, damaged property replacement, and medical costs. General damages may also be paid to compensate you for pain and suffering, disfigurement, mental anguish, diminished mobility and loss of companionship. Punitive damages may also be paid in some personal injury claims.

Understanding Statue of Limitations
If you are considering filing a personal injury claim it must be done within the statute of limitations for your state. Whether the statute of limitations begins at the date of injury or at the time of reasonable discovery will vary based on state law and the type of personal injury claim. State laws for filing a personal injury claim can be as little as a few months to several years. Contact a personal injury attorney if you have questions about your personal injury lawsuit.
