Overview

Personal injury lawsuits arise, as the name implies, when someone is injured. The underlying injury may either be physical or emotional, and it can arise from a variety of sources or types of conduct. Some of the most common types of personal injuries that give rise to legal liability on the part of the wrongdoer include slip and fall cases, automobile accident cases, truck and motorcycle accident injury, construction accidents, and products liability lawsuits. The general goal of personal injury actions is to assign blame - or liability - for the injury to the parties whose actions caused it and to require them to compensate the injured person for the losses sustained. If you or someone you know has been seriously injured by the actions of another, it is essential that you seek legal counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney at once so that you can preserve your rights and protect your future.

Personal injury actions require, in almost every instance, a lawyer's careful examination of the facts and circumstances of the particular matter in question in order to determine whether the defendant is legally responsible for the injuries sustained by the plaintiff. An experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney can look at the facts of your case and determine whether you have a legally valid claim, how soon you must act to preserve your rights, what your damages may be, and whether you may be entitled to some type of financial benefits before your lawsuit is even resolved. And in most cases, you owe no legal fees unless and until the defendant pays the damages award, so you have nothing to lose-and possibly much to gain-by contacting an attorney today. That is called a contingency fee.That means the lawyer's fee depends on recovering money for you.
