What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is when somebody’s been injured in some way. It can run the gamut to an injury that is something that’s going to get better over a short period of time. It can be a death claim that, because of the negligence or because of the fault, somebody did something wrong, it caused an injury to another person. Under our system of justice, we want people to be compensated or reimbursed if somebody wrongfully injures them. One of the principal reasons is we want a society that is safe and if people understand that if you wrongfully injure somebody, you’re going to be responsible for their harm, the mindset is that we’re going to have a safer society. We represent people that have been injured by the fault of another, whether it’s another individual, a corporation, or any type of entity that is responsible for that injury.
