What is a personal injury claim?
A personal injury claim, at a basic level, is a legal filing against a party that has injured you. These cases allow you to recover financial compensation for harm caused by another person. This type of litigation is a part of tort law.
What is a tort?
A tort is a legal concept that defines the injuries committed against a person by another party through either negligence or willful action. Torts are resolved in civil court rather than criminal court.
How does that apply to my injury?
A tort claim is the basis of your personal injury case. Your filing hinges on the details of the original injury in the tort. It falls to your attorney to prove that your injury is the responsibility of the other party and that you deserve compensation.
What does it cost to speak with a personal injury lawyer?
Our office works on a contingency basis, which means we are not paid unless we win your case and you are compensated for your injury. In addition, we offer a free initial consultation to determine your case’s prospects with no financial obligation.
