Personal injury describes any injury to the person. Whether injured due to negligence on another’s property or in an automobile accident, all injuries to a person fall under this category. The most common personal injury claims are those of automobile and those of unsafe conditions that cause injury, such as slipping on soap left on the floor of a store or being cut by metal wire workers left sticking out of a wall. Whether the injury was intentional or simply occurred through negligence, the law holds that the responsible party should be held liable.
What are reasonable claims that can be made when you are injured? You can claim damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage if your property (car, clothes, ets) received damage. In some situation, you can also ask for punitive damages. Punitive damages discourage similar behavior in the future by punishing reckless acts. At The Lassiter Law Firm, P. A. we strive to obtain financial recovery to fully compensate you for damages by exercising your legal rights.
