Personal injury law is a complex legal field. The attorneys who practice personal injury law at Damon Richards Law Firm have many years of experience representing injured individuals and families in a wide variety of cases.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
The variety of circumstances in which a personal injury (or wrongful death) may arise is broad and may include:
- medical malpractice
- premises liability (injuries on public or private premises)
- vehicle accidents
- workplace injuries
- defective products (including drugs and medical devices)
Negligence, Recklessness, or Intentional Harm
When a person’s injury or death is due to the recklessness, negligence, or intentional harm of another party (a person or a corporation), that person and perhaps his or her family may be entitled to a legal remedy that includes financial compensation for damages such as:
- medical bills
- lost income (past and future)
- permanent disability and/or disfigurement
- loss of financial support and companionship
- pain and suffering
- funeral and burial costs
In any personal injury claim, liability must be determined before a legal remedy will be considered. For example, in some cases the conduct of the injured individual contributed to the injury. This would not necessarily prevent an award or settlement for compensation from another party; a skilled and aggressive personal injury attorney such as those at Damon Richards Law Firm can negotiate a fair settlement or obtain a verdict that accurately reflects the injured party’s losses.
A particularly complex field of law is medical malpractice, in which it must be proved that substandard or negligent care caused the injury. Our malpractice attorneys have the medical knowledge that is needed for thorough, effective representation of clients who have been harmed by substandard medical care.
