Practice Areas: Personal Injury
Personal injury cases can include Auto Accidents, Defamation of Character, Product Defects and Medical Malpractice. Personal injury cases are brought about by physical injury or mental anguish caused by actions or negligence of another party. Personal injury law covers the physical harm the individual may have endured. Personal injury cases often involve grave injury, permanent disability as well as death.
In personal injury cases, the court looks for negligence by one of the parties involved. The person legally responsible for at least part of the damages is the person whom the court has deemed to be more negligent (less careless). Victims depend on personal injury lawyers to recover financial damages, such as medical treatments and permanently lost income. In some cases, lawyers sometimes obtain favorable settlements by threatening to take cases to trial. If this is the case, the defendants are often willing to pay out more money to the plaintiffs to avoid the cost of trials and negative publicity.
Mediation is another method of resolving personal injury cases. During the past several years this process has become one of the most widely used methods of arriving at reasonable compromise settlement in a personal injury case. Claims that would be the most expensive and difficult to litigate would use the mediation method. The mediation method is one of the most cost-effective procedures that could save the injured person an enormous amount on money in litigation expenses.
