Personal Injury Law

If you or a loved one has been injured or involved in an accident, you should be aware of all the rights and remedies available.

The types and amounts of damages in personal injury cases depend on the severityand extent of the injury. Compensation can include both compensatory damages (monetary amount to replace what you have lost) and punitive damages (punishment for horrific conduct).

  • Wrongful Death
    Wrongful death damages usually depend on the relationship between the person suffering for the loss and the person lost. Damages can include but are not limited to loss of companionship, mental anguish, potential financial contributions, medical and funeral expenses.
  • Loss of Consortium 
    Loss of consortium is what damage is suffered because of a changed relationship between spouses as a result of one spouse’s injuries. Taken into consideration are loss of companionship, affection, sexual intimacy and emotional support.
  • Emotional Distress 
    Damages for emotional distress depend on many issues, including whether the harm was intentional or unintentional.
  • Pain and Suffering 
    Putting a price on pain and suffering can be difficult, but factors used in determining damages may include the physical and mental distress suffered from an injury, temporary or permanent limitations on activities, a shortened life span, potential, depression or embarrassment from scarring.
  • Monetary Loss 
    When you or a loved one are hurt you might not be able to work the way you used to, or at all. Damages for monetary loss can be determined by lost earnings (what you lost when you had to stop working and what will be lost in the future because of your injury), medical costs, domestic costs, or the repair or replacement of damaged property.
