A personal injury occurs when someone is injured due to the negligent or intentional conduct of another person, product, or company. Personal Injury encompasses a wide variety of injuries. Some examples of these injuries include:
- Boating & Watercraft
- Product Liability (defect in design, manufacturing, or warning)
- Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs/Products
- Defective Equipment
- Defective Machinery
- Defective Medical Devices
- Intentional Torts
- Wrongful Death
- Medical Malpractice
- Premises Liability
- Toxic Exposure (chemicals, hazardous wastes, pesticides, and radiation)
If you or a loved one were injured by another’s negligence, you may be entitled to damages. Damages are awarded to an injured person to compensate them (“make them whole again”) and to deter the defendant, or other parties, from comitting future harmful acts. Damages include:
Economic Damages (Past, Present, & Future):
- Wage loss
- Hospital Bills
- Prescription Bills
- Rehabilitation Bills
Non-Economic Damages (Past, Present, & Future):
- Pain and Suffering
In addition, Punitive Damages may be awarded if the defendant’s actions were “grossly negligent” (a willful and wanton disregard for the safety of others). Punitive Damages are awarded to the Plaintiff to punish the Defendant for being grossly negligent and to deter other parties from acting as careless / reckless as the defendant acted.
