There are many different types of cases that fall under the personal injury law framework. This broad area of the law involves instances in which someone else’s actions caused you an injury. This could include the following types of cases:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle accident
- Product liability
The common theme is that someone else was careless or reckless, and it resulted in you being injured. Personal injury law is the process of making them try to pay for the damage that they caused. You need to show that someone else acted unreasonably under the circumstances and that their negligence caused your injury. This requires hiring an attorney to prove what someone else did to cause your injuries. Your lawyer will also demonstrate the extent of your damages and the compensation that you deserve.
You Are Dealing with an Insurance Company
A personal injury claim typically involves dealing with the company that insures the responsible party. This company could be an auto insurance, homeowner’s insurance, or business insurance company. The principles by which they operate are the same. They try to avoid paying out the full value of claims because they are trying to save money and boost their own profits. There is an entire process that you must follow to be in a position to receive a settlement that includes presenting evidence about the accident and your damages. Then, you must negotiate with the insurance company to attempt to get as much money as you can.
