Personal Injury FAQs
If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you can face costly medical bills during your recovery. However, the law allows you to seek compensation for your losses. You might not be sure exactly how to go about filing a claim, but the following questions and answers may give you a better idea.
If you still have questions, let our personal injury attorney, T. Andrew Miller, assist you. We can help when you need answers and make sure you understand every step of the process.
When Can I File A Lawsuit?
When a person is injured due to the negligence of another person, the injury victim may have grounds for a lawsuit. Negligence in this context refers to a failure to exercise the same degree of care that a reasonable person would have exercised in a similar situation.
What Types Of Injuries Can I File A Claim For?
There are many cases in which you can file a personal injury claim. A few examples include:
- Injuries sustained in a car accident that was not your fault, including hit-and-runs and bicycle accidents
- Injuries caused by a slip-and-fall accident on someone else’s property, like a store or hotel
- Injuries caused by a defective product or medication
- Injuries caused by another person’s pet, like a dog bite
- Injuries caused by medical malpractice or negligence
- Injuries sustained due to poor maintenance of a building
Consult with a lawyer who has experience in personal injury cases. Our lawyer will review your case to determine the level of negligence or fault involved and which type of claim is right for your situation.
Whom Do I Sue In A Personal Injury Claim?
There are several parties that you can attempt to hold liable for your injuries. Some of these include:
- The other driver in a crash
- A commercial driver’s employer
- A product or vehicle manufacturer
- A property owner or manager
- A medical center as a whole or specific member of its staff
- Your employer, if they acted negligently or caused harm intentionally
What Does “Contingency” Mean?
Attorneys take personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means the victim does not have to pay the attorney unless compensation has been gained from the other side.
