What is personal injury law?

Personal injury law was designed to protect individuals that have been injured because someone else behaved irresponsibly. Negligence is at the heart of a personal injury claim and it must be proven that another person’s reckless actions caused the accident that resulted in injury. While many accident victims have no doubt that someone else is to blame for their injuries, holding another person legally responsible is not an easy task. In most cases, the negligent party will argue that you share some – if not all – of the responsibility for the accident. At the Lipsig Law Firm, our experienced personal injury team anticipates and prepares for this type of response, skillfully and strategically presenting your case with a track record of success in recovering fair compensation for your injuries. If you or a loved one has been in an accident that was caused -- in part or in full -- by another person’s negligent behavior, you have the foundation for a personal injury claim.

What are compensatory damages?

In personal injury cases , the injured victim files a claim for compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are designed to compensate the victim for their losses and to restore the victim to the position they were in before the accident occurred. Compensatory damages may include medical bills, lost wages, lost vacation time or earned sick time, pain, and suffering. The value of some losses are measureable, such as medical bills; for other losses, such as pain and suffering, the value must be estimated.

What to you if you have suffered a personal injury

If you have suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence, the first thing to do is to understand your rights under the law. It is not uncommon in the aftermath of an accident for an insurance company to reach out to the injured victim directly to ask questions regarding your injuries, discuss your case, or offer a settlement. Do not participate in these conversations. While an offer of monetary compensation may be tempting, keep in mind that insurance companies act in their best interests – not yours – and any settlement they initially offer is often not the compensation you deserve. Instead, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your case and explore your options.
