Personal Injury Cases Take Various Forms
Even though every personal injury case comes with its own circumstances, they all have negligence in common. The case ceases to exist without proving the other party neglected their responsibilities, which led to the incident.
In turn, you must prove these four tenets to have a valid case:
- Duty of care: The other party was responsible for keeping you safe and following protocol whenever conditions changed (e.g., driving sober, cleaning up spills on the floor, changing soiled clothes, etc.)
- Breach of duty: The other party failed to fulfill their duty of care (e.g., driving while intoxicated, failing to clean up a spill in a timely fashion, not regularly checking on the residents).
- Causation: This negligence caused an incident, which led to your injuries or illness.
- Damages: You have to suffer financial and intangible repercussions due to the accident.
Our firm handles a wide variety of personal injury cases, including those involving:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Moped accidents
- Premises liability
- Defective products
- Dog bites
- Dangerous drugs
- Nursing home abuse
- Wrongful death
- Social Security Disability
- Veteran’s disability

Common Losses You Can Seek to Recover in a Personal Injury Case
How much compensation you receive depends on the type of accident you were involved in and what the aftermath of it looked like for you.
To illustrate, if your physician misdiagnosed you and your true condition worsened, you could incur high medical bills and won’t be able to work again. Your compensatory award might be higher than someone who suffered whiplash in a fender bender at the WestGate Mall parking lot.
When your lawyer assesses your damages, they will group them into two groups: economic and non-economic.
Economic Damages You Can Collect After Getting Injured
These losses are easily calculable, as you can verify their value through receipts and bills. Examples of such damages are:
- Past and ongoing medical treatment: If you needed pain medications, surgery, to stay at the hospital, lab work, assistive medical equipment, or physical therapy
- Property damage: If your car, motorcycle, moped, bike, or another type of vehicle needed repairs or replacement
- Lost wages: If you lost business opportunities, promotions, hourly pay, tips, commission, and other employee benefits because you had to take a leave of absence from work
- Diminished earning power: If you take a lower-paying job because you can’t return to your old one and make the same amount
- Other out-of-pocket costs: If you change aspects of your home to accommodate your injuries or need help caring for your family-owned
Non-Economic Damages Should Also be Accounted For
These intangible losses are subjective and unique to your situation but are based on your economic damages.
Non-economic damages you can seek are:
- Mental anguish: If the accident has harmed your mental and emotional well-being
- Lost quality of life: If you are having a hard time coping with your injuries
- Pain and suffering: If the pain from your injuries keeps you from doing the activities you enjoy
When Your Loved One Succumbs to Their Accident-Related Injuries
You have the option to take wrongful death action if your loved one passed away from the accident. Some of the damages you can claim are:
- Burial arrangement fees
- Funeral service costs
- End-of-life medical care bills
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of financial support
