Do I Have a Valid Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury is the legal term for an injury to the body, emotions, or mind as opposed to an injury to a piece of property. The term is most commonly used to refer to a type of lawsuit in which a plaintiff claims that the injury that he or she sustained was directly caused by the negligence of another party.

Most Common Types of Personal Injury Claims

If you feel as though you have experienced an injury of this nature, it is important to contact Petro Cohen as soon as possible to determine whether you have a valid case.

Is a Personal Injury Attorney Necessary?

If you have been injured in an accident that you believe was caused due to the fault or negligence of another, it is in your best interest to seek legal representation as soon as possible. While many people may feel as though a personal injury attorney is not necessary, working with an experienced lawyer can help to protect your legal rights and ensure that you receive the maximum compensation to which you may be entitled.

How Can I Determine Who is Liable for My Injury?

A personal injury claim requests financial compensation for any injury caused by another, particularly in the event that the injured person’s insurance cannot cover all of the damages and medical costs for the treatment or rehabilitation of the injury. There are many possible scenarios for personal injury claims in the Northfield area depending on the facts of your accident, and you may be entitled to hold more than one party accountable for your injuries. If you believe you have a valid claim, contact us today to arrange for a free consultation. The attorney with whom you work may request evidence of your injury such as a police report and/or photographic or video evidence.

How Are Personal Injury Damages Calculated?

Each personal injury case is different and there is no set amount of compensation to which an individual may be entitled. Instead, your personal injury damages are determined by your lost wages or loss of earning capacity, your out-of-pocket expenses for medical bills and treatments, and the severity of your injury. The attorneys at Petro Cohen can help to calculate how the injury has affected your life as well as the long-term effect that your injury will have on you and your family.
