Personal Injury Claims

By Jane Ann Cruce

Personal injury claims are filed by people, or their lawyers, who were injured due to the negligence of others. The injury may be either physical or emotional, and it can arise from a variety of sources or types of conduct. Some of the more common types of personal injury cases include car accidents and slip and fall cases.  In general, the goal of a personal injury claim is to determine who was responsible for the injury and to compel the responsible party to compensate the injured person for the losses sustained.

Every state has certain time limits, called “statutes of limitations,” which govern the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you may lose your legal right to damages for your injury. Consequently, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as you suffer or discover an injury.

Motor vehicle accidents cause the loss of time, property, health and even life. Car accidents occur due to driver error, negligence and dangerous weather. No matter what the specific cause or result, a crash can turn a normal day into a seemingly never-ending nightmare.
