Personal injury law includes car accidents but can also arise from other forms of negligence. There is premises liability which occurs when you are injured by conditions on another person’s land. You can also sustain a dog bite or develop an injury or illness after using an unsafe consumer product. Personal injury involves a wide assortment of circumstances where you suffer consequences because someone else failed to act or behaved negligently. In many of these instances, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries under civil law.
Securing this compensation can be another matter. Even objective losses like medical bills and lost wages are questioned. Pain and suffering is very subjective and also challenged by the other party. If the party has auto or homeowner’s insurance that is involved in this matter, they will deny liability and attempt to settle for the lowest amount possible. People may find these settlements barely cover their losses.
That is why hiring a personal injury attorney is a prudent decision. The Law Office of John Little, PLLC, is a full service law firm that also handles personal injury matters. If you or a family member experience any of the following, we are available to help you:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall incidents
- Unsafe conditions on land
- Assault and battery
- Wrongful death
- Defective products
It is often the public’s perception that hiring an attorney for these matters is about inflating damages and not about securing justice or making yourself whole. When you consider how insurance companies often lowball these matters, that is simply not the truth. Also, your focus needs to be on recovery so you can return to work and your life. Having an attorney collect your medical records, answer inquiries, and litigate the matter if it comes to that takes a great deal of stress off or you during these challenging circumstances.
