What Is Personal Injury?
Personal injury law can pertain to nearly any type of accident in which someone has been injured at no fault of their own. Typical personal injury claims have to do with car accidents, motorcycle accidents, swimming pool accidents, slips, trips, premises liability, and much more. In short, the only requirement for a personal injury claim is that someone was harmed at the fault of another. The goal of such claims is to provide the injured person with the compensation they need to cover medical bills, lost wages, and more.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Because personal injury law encompasses such a wide range of claims, it’s difficult to list all the instances where a lawsuit may be feasible. If you believe you have a case, don’t hesitate to contact The Estes Law Firm. We have a range of specialties, and we’re here to help you or your loved one claim compensation. Some common types of personal injury cases we work with include, but aren’t limited to, the following:
What Kind of Damages Could I Receive?
Victims in a personal injury case may be entitled to a range of damages. Many of our clients receive monetary compensation in the form of repayment for lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. Depending on the circumstances of the case, you may also be entitled to non-economic damages. While these types of damages may be more challenging to prove, they may be viable in your situation. Non-economic damages typically have to do with pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of ability to enjoy the same activities you once did.
