Auto & Truck Accidents, Catastrophic Injuries, Slip & Falls, & Insurance Claims
Personal injury and wrongful death claims are based upon the theory of negligence, which means a duty that was owed had been breached and as a result an injury or death occurred. These cases typically involve both economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages for the pain and suffering of an injury or the death of a loved one.
Compensation for personal injury claims are awarded for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering of the injured person as well as claims by a spouse for the injury to their loved one.
Wrongful death claims also often entail medical bills and funeral expenses, and more importantly, compensation for the pain and suffering of the survivors of the deceased, which often include the deceased’s spouse, children or parents, and the recovery of the economic loss of the deceased who may have been providing for his/her family.
Catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases can be extremely complex, and they often require lengthy and costly litigation. They must be addressed by employing the skills and expertise of highly qualified and experienced trial attorneys who are committed to holding those who were negligent accountable for their actions or inactions.
