What Is a Personal Injury Case?
A personal injury case results when someone gets hurt in an accident or by deliberate action, and it’s someone else’s fault. Personal injury cases are civil cases, as opposed to criminal cases. The difference is that while there may be fines involved in a criminal case, this kind of case is designed to punish someone for wrongdoing under the law. You won’t see any money from fines.
Civil cases, on the other hand, have a different burden of proof, and there are no criminal penalties attached. Nobody will go to jail over a civil case. The only purpose of a civil case is to award monetary damages to the wronged party. You can pursue a civil case even against someone who was found not guilty in a criminal case–the two have nothing to do with one another.
So when you are hurt by the actions or inactions of someone else, whether deliberate or just irresponsible, you are entitled to collect monetary compensation for the damages you suffer.
What Kinds of Compensation Are Available?
There is a broad range of compensatory damages you can collect in a personal injury case. Just a few of these include:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Transportation to and from the doctor
- Lost wages
- Potential loss of future wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional stress and trauma
- Damage to your relationships
- Loss of comfort
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages (in the worst cases like deliberate malice)
It can, however, be difficult to collect significant compensation on your own. That’s why you want a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney like Andy Citrin in your corner.
Pursuing Your Injury Case
Pursuing your injury case may have differing levels of complexity depending on the type of accident and the severity of your injuries. Every case is different. For example, while almost every injury case revolves around negligence–that is, that someone was irresponsible or malicious and their unreasonable actions caused the accident that hurt you–different parties can be responsible depending on the case.
For example, in product liability and trucking accident cases there can be a long list of responsible parties involved–product manufacturers, shipping companies, drivers, trucking companies and more. Each of these holds partial responsibility, which opens the door for more significant compensation, but which also complicates the case as each will argue the level of responsibility they hold.
Battling the Insurance Adjuster
Even worse, insurance companies will resort to all manner of dirty tricks to get out of paying your claim. They’ll blame you for the accident. They’ll claim you’re not actually hurt. They’ll even try to trick you into signing your rights away or threaten you with no compensation if you push your case through.
These people are called insurance adjusters, and it’s their job to close your case fast. They’re evaluated based on how many cases they close without bringing in a supervisor so they’ll do anything to get you to give in. They usually don’t know anything about your case, but they know how to come off like they know everything. Dealing with them can be scary, frustrating, terrifying, and make you feel alone and betrayed
That’s why it’s so important to have someone in your corner who knows how to fight for your case. You need someone with experience and knowledge in how injury cases proceed, and how to give you the best shot at full compensation for your injuries. The right attorney won’t even charge you a fee unless your case is won.
