Personal Injury

Personal injury refers to the physical injury, psychological damage, and emotional distress suffered by a person as a result of the wrongful conduct of another individual. Those who have suffered personal injury may file civil lawsuits to seek compensation from the offender. Most personal injury cases result from negligence, malpractice, or intentional misconduct.

Slip and Fall Cases

These cases are personal injury claims based on a person slipping and falling. Property owners may be held responsible in slip and fall cases due to their negligence in allowing a dangerous condition to exist on their property which caused or resulted in the fall.

Property Damage

Property damage may include automobile, home, or fence damage which has been caused by a negligent or willful act. Settlements in these cases generally cover replacement or repair costs for the damaged property.

Wrongful Death

The death of an individual resulting from a willful or negligent act of another person or entity is called wrongful death. Generally, the deceased person's heirs and other beneficiaries may file a wrongful death action against those responsible for the person's death.
