Personal Injury Offenses
The term "personal injury" is the phrase used to describe an occurrence where an individual has sustained some type of physical injury. Often times the injury occurs as a result of the negligence of another individual or entity.
Depending on the type of personal injury claim, there is a statute of limitations that applies to each case. This means that if you do not bring your claim within a certain period of time, you may be prohibited from ever filing suit in court. This is why is it always important to act quickly.
Slip and Falls
A slip and fall is a type of premises liability action. This means that if you fall and hurt yourself on someone else’s property or premises, you may be entitled to recover damages if that individual or entity had a duty to maintain their property to a certain standard of care.
Involvement in a collision with another automobile or commercial vehicle may cause significant physical injuries, entitling you to damages. Often times, the insurance company on the opposing side will attempt to contact you immediately to obtain a statement regarding the incident or the extent of your injury. Making a statement under these circumstances can potentially hurt your claim. The insurance company may also attempt to settle your case by offering you the lowest possible figure when you may be entitled to much more. Don’t be tricked into settling for less than you deserve. Be sure to retain competent legal counsel for your auto accident claim immediately.
