When we have someone seek us out for their personal injury case, one of the biggest questions we get is: what is a personal injury case?
The basics of personal injury law state that in a personal injury case someone has to have been injured.
This injury could be the result of a car accident, a slip and fall on a property, some sort of medical malpractice, a workplace injury or any other instance in which harm is done.
No Personal Injury, No Personal Injury Lawyer Needed
It's important to note that if you've been in a car accident or a workplace accident and haven't suffered an injury of any kind and you have a property claim, then this is different from a personal injury claim.
These are the kinds of claims that our law firm does not handle.
Our focus is on personal injury law and claims resulting from gross negligence or fault due to another party.
Personal Injury? We Can Help There
If you have been in a car accident, a workplace accident, the victim of malpractice, a slip and fall case and there is significant personal injury, then you may have a personal injury and our firm can help.
If you've been in a car accident and you are not hurt - but there's significant property damage, then your insurance company is perfectly well-suited to handle that part of your claim.
The Worst Kind of Personal Injury Claim: Wrongful Death
The worst kind of personal injury cases are wrongful death cases.
In these kinds of severe cases, the surviving family can file a claim based on the negligence of the other party or the defendant who's responsible.
Each state has its own laws regarding wrongful death and it's wise to speak with a Massachusetts or Rhode Island wrongful death personal injury attorney about these specific state laws.
Who Our Personal Injury Law Firm Does Not Represent
Out of professional courtesy, id you've already been represented by another attorney for a period of time, then chances are that we will not take your case as well.
However, with the information contained in this blog, hopefully it will assist you in pursuing your claim with that personal injury law firm.
Who To Contact for Your Personal Injury Case
If you have been injured, or know anyone you know has been injured in Massachusetts or Rhode Island, first seek medical attention.
After your full medical evaluation, consider seeking the counsel of a personal injury law firm - one who is familiar with personal injury law related to your specific case.
