Personal injury is a highly specialized and complicated area of the law. Usually, insurance companies are involved because the other party, either an individual or business, has insurance. That means there is typically a large insurance company and their attorneys working to avoid paying compensation.
If you have been harmed physically or emotionally, whether intentionally or due to negligence of another party, the law allows you to seek compensation. This compensation can include money for medical expenses, lost wages, scarring or disfigurement, and pain and suffering. If a loved one has been seriously injured or killed due to the negligence of another, you can seek compensation for what is known as loss of consortium and/or wrongful death.
