What is a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases are legal disputes that ensue when a person suffers harm to his or her body or mind, due to the negligence, gross negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct, of another person or entity. A personal injury case can go through civil court proceedings in which the plaintiff seeks to find others legally guilty through a court judgment or more commonly, through an informal settlement.

Formal Lawsuits

As with most civil cases, personal injury cases begin with the private individual (the “plaintiff”) filing a civil “complaint” against another person, business, corporation or government agency (the “defendant), specifying what the defendant did wrong and that their wrongdoing caused the plaintiff’s injury.

Informal Settlements

Many disputes over at-fault accidents or injuries are resolved through informal early settlements and include those personally involved, their insurers and each of their attorneys. A settlement takes the form of negotiation and then a written agreement in which both sides waive further legal action and resolve the matter through an agreed-upon payment of money. Settlements can be either lump-sum or as a structured settlement, in which the payments are made over a period of time.

At My Injury Attorney, we use our experience in handling personal injury cases to investigate every possible contributing cause of a personal injury to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries.

Victims who win or settle their personal injury claims may collect compensation for their:

  • medical treatment
  • rehabilitative care
  • lost wages from time taken off of work
  • future lost income (for disabling injuries)
  • property damage
  • pain and suffering
  • emotional trauma

Truck Accidents

From interstates to side roads, semi trucks are a constant roadway presence. When one of these trucks collides with a smaller vehicle, the results can be devastating.

Our attorneys investigate the possible causes of each truck accident, including:

Speeding Infractions

  • Drunk driving/driving under the influence
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving/road rage
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Defective vehicle components
  • Improperly secured cargo
  • Inadequate driver training

If you or a family member has been injured in a truck accident, it is vital to have an experienced attorney protecting your rights and fighting for your best interests. Here at My Injury Attorney, we have the resources and know-how to handle difficult truck accident cases. Contact us to get started working on your case today.

Motorcycle Accidents

Riding a motorcycle is both exciting and risky. Motorcycles offer little protection when accidents occur. Without the airbags, seatbelts and interior frames that protect automobile drivers, motorcyclists are vulnerable to serious injuries during a crash. These include brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractures and severe road rash. Here at My Injury Attorney, we work diligently to ensure your financial compensation is maximized.

Our lawyers will dig into the details of the case to identify the cause of the accident and determine the responsible party. We will explore the cause of the accident, including:

  • Lack of signage
  • A dangerous or defective roadway
  • A roadway hazard
  • Another driver’s negligence
  • A defective motorcycle and/or product

To put our experience and knowledge on your side, call us at 888-440-7686 or contact us online. We’ll be happy to discuss your case and advise you of your legal rights and options.

There is no obligation with My Injury Attorney

An initial discussion with us about your case is free of charge or obligation. We only charge a fee if we are successful in recovering a settle. We can even assist you with finding an appropriate medical specialist to treat your jury for you.
