Personal Injury

When a person is injured in an accident that is caused by the negligence, recklessness or carelessness of another person or entity, then it falls under personal injury law. In the United States, personal injury accident victims have the right to pursue financial compensation for all of their economic and non-economic damages when they are injured in an accident. If you or someone you love has recently been injured in a personal injury accident, then it would be in your best interests to take immediate action by contacting a Tracy personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Martin & Farah Law, P.C.

Understanding Personal Injury Accidents

Personal injury law covers a broad spectrum of personal injury accidents. Perhaps one of the most common types of personal injury accidents is those relating to motor vehicles. Car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and big-rig accidents can all have the potential to cause serious, if not life-threatening injuries for the accident victim. Motor vehicle accidents can ultimately cost the accident victim tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses, property damage and lost income.

Other common types of personal injury accidents include: construction accidents, slip & fall accidents, dog bites & attacks, workplace accidents, swimming pool accidents, boating accidents and drowning accidents. Accidents that occur on private or commercial property frequently fall under premises liability law, whereas dangerous and defective products would fall under product liability law. Cases of nursing home abuse and neglect, as well as dental malpractice and medical malpractice also fall under the category of personal injury law.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury accidents are entirely preventable. In the majority of cases the accident and its subsequent injuries could have been prevented if the legally liable party had been executing a higher level of care. Fortunately, the law allows the victims of such accidents to pursue financial compensation for their losses. A personal injury settlement may cover property damage (as in a car accident), medical bills, ambulance bills, rehabilitation therapy, surgery, pain & suffering as well as lost income and loss of future income.

Most personal injury and wrongful death claims have a statute of limitations. This means that you only have a certain period of time in order to file a claim otherwise you lose your right to compensation permanently. Since these types of cases are time sensitive, I urge you to contact me as soon as possible. Each type of case is unique and the statute of limitations can vary depending upon the circumstances of the case.

It's important to note that although you can reasonably expect a call from the insurance company, you can count on the fact that whatever they offer you will be far below the value of your claim. Insurance companies are for-profit companies who are only interested in their bottom line. If you hire an attorney from my firm, your chances of receiving a large settlement are far greater than if you elect to represent yourself. Although it may be tempting to make a quick settlement, any haste on your part can mean thousands of dollars lost. As your attorney, it's my priority to see to it that you are fairly compensated for your injuries. I will not accept a low-ball settlement offer and I have the resources necessary to build a strong and compelling case on your behalf.
