When the intentional or negligent act of another has harmed you physically or emotionally, the law allows you to pursue compensation. This compensation can include money for medical expenses and lost wages, pain and suffering, and what is known as punitive damages. Punitive damages are generally awarded only in cases where the defendant’s behavior is so outrageous it merits an “example” being set to prevent others from behaving in a similar manner in the future. In addition, if a person has been killed due to the negligence of another, it is possible to seek compensation for wrongful death.
Personal injury is a complex, highly specialized area of the law. Insurance companies and their lawyers will do just about anything to avoid paying compensation. If an insurance company or its representative offers you a quick settlement, do not accept it without first consulting our personal injury attorneys. We have years of experience dealing with insurance companies and know how to maximize the value of your case. Even though most cases settle without going to trial, our attorneys prepare every case thoroughly in the event that trial is needed to obtain fair compensation.
