You hear the term all the time on television. An injury to your body is really what personal injury means, simply calling it bodily injury would suffice. Personal injury is the classification of tort law specifically dealing with negligence, liability.
Personal injury law is a specialty. In the same way doctors specialize in different kinds of medicine, lawyers specialize in branches of the law. Similarly, personal injury lawyers understand the law and issues that are unique to injury law.
Anyone who hires a law firm that does not specialize in personal injury law is a general knowledge attorney: someone that may understand basic fundamentals of that practice, but does not have the unique set of skills specific to injury law.
Insurance companies are in business to collect premiums and protect their bottom line, not to pay out injury claims.

When you have been injured in an accident, it is essential that you are well-informed about your rights and the legal avenues that you can use to seek financial compensation. When a client hires us, they know they get access to the experience and legal power necessary to get the best settlement or verdict.
Through personal injury claims, you and your loved ones are entitled to get reimbursement for all the losses you suffer.
Most claims are resolved through an out-of-court settlement. If you get the matter settled, you won’t have to go through the hassle of a trial; you collect an agreed sum and forget about future legal actions related to your injury.
If there can’t be an agreement, a personal injury lawsuit is filed. Injury claims are based on the severity of an injury and the insurance coverage available.
We work with police officers and insurance companies and in courtrooms on a daily basis. We know how to prepare our clients for court trials. Our goal is to ensure that your voice is heard.

The faster we are able to work on your case, the better it is going to be. Insurance companies will strive hard to make sure that you get the lowest possible settlement.
Personal Injury cases may be complicated: evidence may go missing, witnesses may forget the intricate details of the incident etc. If the liable party is an entity, they may adopt innumerable ways to cover up the case.
The temptation to settle the matter out of court is understandable. Medical bills may be piling up and you may need money urgently. If you have sustained injuries or suffered losses, it’s best to let an attorney review your case before you decide to settle it yourself.
