What About Personal Injury?

Personal Injury

PERSONAL INJURY

A personal injury case involves any injuries you sustained due to someone else’s fault. The injury is not limited only to you personally. It could involve an injury to your person but also a family member, damage to your property or emotional distress. There are many types of Personal Injury cases. Many are due to automobile accidents. Others are due to a slip and fall, a fire blaze, a burn injury from a product or chemical, an electrocution, a construction site injury, an injury due to a defective product, a dog bite or a medical malpractice, just to name a few. The possibilities are too numerous to mention. The point to keep in mind is if you’ve been injured due to another person’s or company’s fault, you potentially have a case.

What to do when you’re injured

If you believe you have been injured due to the negligence or carelessness of another, contact a reputable lawyer as soon as possible. It is recommended that you do not discuss the matter with strangers and/or insurance representatives who are not from your own insurance company. Anything you might say to them, without the advice of counsel, may be used against you in a Court of Law. That could be harmful to your case.

What are my attorney fees?

Attorney fees in medical malpractice cases are the same as in any other personal injury case. The fees are based on a percentage of any amounts recovered and are contingent on your receiving a Court, jury or arbitration award or a settlement. Qualified lawyers, we will discuss this with you at the very first meeting and will provide you with a written agreement so you will be comfortable knowing what the fee arrangement with us will be.
