PERSONAL INJURY

 

Clients have a lot of choices who they hire as their attorney and clients should expect their attorney to be competent.  What makes our law firm truly stand out is our commitment to CLIENT SERVICE

Personal Injury Law, also known as “Tort Law,” is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else's act or failure to act. With such cases, the individual, or “party,” who caused the injury or harm is legally obligated to compensate the party who suffered the losses.  

Torts are based on one of three theories:

  • Negligence;

  • Strict Liability; or

  • Intentional Misconduct

Automobile accidents involve a negligence claim if you are injured by a driver who failed to exercise reasonable care, because drivers have a duty to exercise reasonable care anytime they are on the road.  When they breach that duty and your injury results, personal injury law says you can recoup your losses.


Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues:

  • Liability (is the party liable for the damages you sustained?); and

  • Damages (if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages?)


If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.  This overview will guide you through the process of making a personal injury claim.
