Injuries from Negligence
Pursuing Compensation from Another's Negligence
Negligent acts of commission or omission are the basis of a
personal injury claim. When seeking compensation for an accident-related injury, the negligent
aspects of the incident must be established. This includes proving that
the party involved had a duty to act with a reasonable standard of care,
that duty was violated, and that this violation resulted in an accident
that caused injuries. The compensation that is awarded in a personal injury
case can include damages for:
- Medical care and treatment
- Lost current and future wages
- Emotional trauma
- Property damage
- Medical equipment
- Long term care
- Funeral costs

For workplace accidents, you will want the skillful attention of a legal
professional who is familiar with workers' compensation claims.
