Personal injury claims are considered civil law claims and fall under the control of Tort Law. Torts' law presumes that all individuals are responsible for their own actions.
Unlike criminal law or family law, civil law operates under a philosophy that if someone causes harm to you, they are held responsible for that harm and the resulting injuries to you.
In many cases, the insurance companies will handle the claim, other times you will have to litigate the case in court. Our personal injury law group has successfully recovered large settlements without having to go to trial.
In all personal injury claims, you have to prove two elements in the law called liability and damages. Liability of the other party is proving that they are at fault for your injuries.
After we prove liability, we use our expertise and power to demand an appropriate amount for damages that is fair to your pain and suffering. This amount will include loss of wages, future and present medical costs, diminished earning capacity and more.
