If you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you could be eligible to seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim. Severe or catastrophic injury victims often face a long and complicated path to recovery, confronting unimaginable physical pain, exorbitant medical expenses, and in some cases, the prospect of not being able to work again.
A personal injury claim could be filed if you are hurt due to a car accident, slip and fall accident, medical malpractice, a defective product, or any other incident that was caused by negligence on the part of another person or party.
If you believe you have a personal injury case, it is crucial to talk to a knowledgeable attorney about your legal rights. You will likely have to seek compensation from parties that are unwilling to admit fault and insurance companies that are looking to pay as little as possible for your claim. A skilled personal injury lawyer can help you navigate these tricky situations and work to pursue the full compensation you are owed.

What Is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury laws enable accident victims to pursue compensation when the carelessness of another person has harmed them. The approach that a personal injury lawyer takes is not informed by the injury itself, but by what caused the injury. For example, if you have been harmed in a collision, you need to work with a personal injury lawyer who is well-versed in car accident claims.
Each personal injury case has four elements that must be proven:
Duty of care
- This duty is the obligation that a party has to act with the safety of others in mind. The duty that a party owes to others can vary by case, such as a driver’s duty to operate a vehicle in a safe manner or a store owner’s duty to maintain a safe premise.
Breach of care
- When someone fails to fulfill their duty of care, they put others in harm’s way.
- The breach of care caused the plaintiff’s accident or injuries.
- As a result of the accident and subsequent lesion, the plaintiff suffered losses. The severity of the losses will influence how much compensation can be recovered.
In order to successfully prove these elements and pursue the full compensation that you may be owed, victims should seek experienced legal representation. People who choose to pursue a claim without the help of an injury lawyer are often persuaded or forced to accept a settlement that is far less than what they deserve.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If your accident was caused by another party’s negligence and it left you to deal with physical, financial, and emotional challenges, it is a good idea to discuss your case with an attorney who has successfully handled personal injury claims.
Be wary of insurance company representatives who urge you to handle your case on your own or insist that they will “take care of you.” Remember that the insurance company’s primary goal is to make a profit, not to pay out claims. The company’s representatives will do all they can to deny your claim or get you to accept a settlement that is far less than what you are actually entitled to receive.
A personal injury lawyer is there to represent your best interests throughout the process.
