What is Personal Injury?

What is Personal Injury?

The most common types of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, product defect accidents (product liability) and holiday accidents. The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which lead to numerous medical negligence claims every year) and conditions that are often classified as industrial disease cases.

If the negligence of another party can be proved, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party. Attorneys often represent clients on a “contingency basis,” in which the attorney’s fee is a percentage of the plaintiff’s eventual compensation, payable when the case is resolved. Oftentimes, having an attorney becomes essential because cases become extremely complex.

In the unfortunate event that you are seriously injured, you have a lot to be worrying about.  This is a time to heal and to spend time with family and loved ones while you figure out the best course of action. An attorney experienced in personal injury knows how to take some of the burden from your shoulders and can help evaluate your situation.

The attorneys of the Moye Law Firm are skilled in Tallahassee personal injury settlements.  They can assist you in properly and quickly preserving the evidence that may become necessary should you need to file a personal injury lawsuit and also know how to negotiate on your behalf to obtain a personal injury settlement.

Insurance companies have a goal.

It is important to be aware that an insurance company initially usually offers you far less that it is willing to pay to settle an injury claim.  The goal of the insurance company is to get you to settle your claim for the lowest amount possible. Attorneys experienced in personal injury settlement in Tallahassee know how to negotiate to maximize your injury settlement.  As part of your Tallahassee personal injury settlement, your attorney will seek recovery for lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses.

In the event that your lawyers cannot negotiate an acceptable settlement, a personal injury lawsuit may be filed on your behalf to recover the damages you suffered. Most personal injury cases do settle before trial and an experienced attorney can make the difference in the amount you recover.  To increase the likelihood of collecting more for your damages, seek representation of an attorney skilled in personal injury settlements and personal injury litigation.
