Per­sonal Injury

Per­sonal Injury cases arise dur­ing the neg­li­gent acts of some­one.  Gen­er­ally, indi­vid­u­als have to act in a rea­son­able pru­dent man­ner and if they fail to meet this stan­dard they could be liable for breach­ing the stan­dard of care.  Some peo­ple have to meet a higher stan­dard of care as a result of their exper­tise such as a doc­tor or lawyer or due to their sta­tus as a busi­ness owner.  You will need to con­sult with an attor­ney to ascer­tain the stan­dard of care and explain your sit­u­a­tion.  Com­mon types of per­sonal injury cases are car acci­dents, busi­nesses that fail to warn or keep cus­tomers safe on their premises, prod­ucts lia­bil­ity and defec­tives, nui­sance and tres­pass­ing, and med­ical mal­prac­tice.  The neg­li­gent acts of another can cause you sig­nif­i­cant finan­cial, phys­i­cal and emo­tional harm.  You should con­sult with an attor­ney regard­ing your per­sonal injury mat­ter.  Per­sonal injury cases may be able to be resolved through nego­ti­a­tion rather than fil­ing a law­suit.  Attor­neys can often pre­pare let­ters and speak directly with the neg­li­gent party and resolve the mat­ter favor­ably for their client with­out hav­ing to bring the case to court.
