When you’re hurt in an accident, you might hear others throwing around the phrase personal injury. But you might not know what the phrase means. A personal injury is a physical injury. It’s different than an injury to your property or breaking a contract that you have with someone else. When you get hurt, personal injury law gives you a way to recover for your losses.
You may have a way to recover under the law for your personal injury even if the other person didn’t hurt you on purpose. The law looks at whether you’re hurt because of someone else’s negligence. That means if you get hurt because someone wasn’t as careful as they should be in a given situation, you may have a claim for recovery. As attorney Patrick Wandres explains, an action or even an inaction that results in your injury can amount to negligence.
Although your personal injury is a physical injury, the damages that you can recover are not just for your medical bills. You may ask for recovery for lost work, mental health care, pain and suffering and more. The right attorney can help you document these losses in order to ask for the full amount of your claim.
Getting a fair recovery for your personal injury means creating a strategy to pursue your case in the best way possible. Attorney Patrick Wandres and his legal team can help you draft court documents to properly demand a recovery from the responsible party. They can make sure that you identify all of the types of damages that may be appropriate in the case.
