Personal Injury Law usually comes into play when an individual is harmed by or on the property of another individual or business. Injuries most often result due to the negligence from the other party. This can involve cases of drunk driving, medical complications, animal or dog bites, or defective products. Other types of cases involve malicious intent and include assault, battery, false imprisonment, trespass, theft, and the cause for emotional distress.
Whether you were the one injured or the who is having charges brought against you, it is a good idea to hire a lawyer to ensure your case is handled fairly. Oftentimes throughout these types of situations, emotions can run very high due to the nature of injuries and feelings of unfairness either side can have.
While some personal injury cases do go to trial, most are settled out of court with a financial settlement. This is oftentimes the most affordable and expedient way to handle these cases. Giving each party involved a way to end, a sometimes emotional ordeal, quickly and easily.
