A valid personal injury claim involves 2 main things:
-a person who has been injured
-a person whose negligence caused the injury
Minor injuries like cuts and bruises are not cause for a personal injury claim. However, serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries, head trauma, and broken bones are all likely to cause substantial medical bills from treatment and recovery.
Damages resulting from an accident include the medical bills, lost wages from inability to work, and pain and suffering.
When you are considering filing a personal injury claim and are unsure whether you have a valid claim, you should speak to an experienced personal injury attorney. Once you have provided your attorney with the details of your accident, they can help you determine the best way to go about obtaining a fair settlement for your injuries.
