What Does Personal Injury Mean?
Personal injury can mean many things under the law. Anyone who has been injured due to another person’s negligence – or due to the negligence of a company or institution – may be eligible for support in the area of tort law.
These injuries can take a variety of forms, too. It could be a physical injury from a traffic accident or an on-the-job accident. It could be a lingering condition due to malpractice, be it medical or any other type of professional malpractice. It could be a psychological injury stemming from the use of a defective product. It could be back pain from a slip-and-fall incident.
We would happy to speak with you about your situation. We cannot guarantee that your case is one we will take on, but we certainly would like to hear your story and see how we can (and if we can) help you.
How Will I Be Compensated For My Personal Injury?
The types of compensation for personal injury cases varies widely as well. Many factors enter into this consideration, including the severity of your injury, and the extent of the negligence. If we are able to prove, to the extent that the court requires, that the individual or the company knew about unsafe conditions and did not take steps to correct those conditions, it can affect the outcome of the case’s settlement.
What Should I Look For in a Personal Injury Attorney?
When looking for an attorney to help you with your personal injury case, you want to be discerning. Having the right attorney can be there difference between success and failure, and between a pleasant process for you and an unpleasant one.
Over at SpinalCord, Zawn Villines writes about qualities that successful personal injury lawyers share. Some of these qualities include:
Knowledge of the Law
New decisions, at the district court level or at the highest level of the Supreme Court, can change the whole terrain of personal injury law. Lawyers who want to succeed in this field stay hungry, and stay curious about new cases and new precedent. Having an insatiable appetite for reading legal briefs is an important quality.
Knowledge of the Medical Industry
Given how much these attorneys deal with medical decisions, the bases for evaluation, and diagnostic criteria, they start to pick up some of the knowledge that is often dispensed in medical school.
Working in a trial setting involves several muscles — many of them mental muscles — so having trial experience is key. Especially recent trial experience.
The best lawyers can be frank with you. If a part of your case is problematic, or if your chances in court have just become more limited due to a development in the evidence, your lawyers should tell you right away. The attorney shouldn’t tell you what you want to hear. The attorney should tell you the truth.
