If you suffer personal injury due to carelessness of another individual operating
an automobile, truck, motorcycle, or other motor vehicle, you have a personal injury
settlement case. You should contact
personal injury lawyers
for a free initial consultation. Carelessness expresses inattention of negligence.
For example, if an individual failed to stop his vehicle at a red light, as a reasonable
person would, he could be considered careless and answerable for damages.
Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as
opposed to injury to property. The term is most commonly used to refer to a type
of tort lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff's injury has been caused by the negligence
of another, but also arises in defamation torts.
Personal injury includes damage to the body, emotions or mind. The term personal
injury settlement is most frequently used to refer to tort court case claiming that
the applicant's injury has been caused by the carelessness of another.
The most common types of personal injury claims are traffic accidents, accidents
at work, tripping accidents, assault claims, and product defect accidents (product
liability). The term personal injury is also used in reference to medical malpractice
cases and conditions that are often classified as industrial disease cases, including
asbestosis and mesothelioma, chest diseases (e.g., emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis,
chronic bronchitis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic obstructive
airways disease), vibration white finger, occupational deafness, occupational stress,
contact dermatitis, and repetitive strain injury cases.
There are many ways by which
personal injury occurs. Personal injury includes bodily damage, such as
bruises, broken bones and any critical injury continued in any type of accident.
It also includes mental injury you experienced as an outcome of shock sustained
through an embarrassing or life threatening experience.
While many personal injury settlement cases involves only minor injuries, you may
recover medical costs, as well as medications, hospital expenses and personal treatment.
The most familiar types of personal injury claims are tripping accidents, slip and
fall accidents, motor vehicle, assault claims, accidents at work, product defect
accidents and product liability claims.
If the negligence of another party can be proved, the injured party may be entitled
to monetary compensation from that party. In the United States, this system is complex
and controversial, with critics calling for various forms of tort reform. Attorneys
often represent personal injury clients on a "contingency basis," in which the attorney's
fee is a percentage of the plaintiff's eventual compensation, payable when the case
is resolved. Oftentimes, having an attorney becomes essential due to the complexity
of the injuries or challenges in proving liability.
In Virginia, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed within two years of the date
of injury. The statute of limitations will prevent the injured party from recovering
any compensation if he misses the filing deadline.
Conditional Fee Agreement:
"No win, no fee' is a term used to describe the conditional fee agreement between
a law firm and the client in a personal injury claim. The lawyer's fee is set as
a percentage of the total recovery, so the client does not have to pay any legal
fees unless/until the client receives compensation from the other party. The client
remains responsible for the costs associated with the case, such as copies of medical
records, medical evaluations, and court filing fees.
