WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

What is a personal injury claim?

A formal court process typically starts when a plaintiff files a civil claim at court. Sometimes it is advantageous to settle a claim before it reaches this process if both parties are able to reach a fair resolution.

Personal injury claims usually have two main issues: who is liable and what are the damages? Liability simply means which party or parties is/are at fault for the injuries sustained by the plaintiff(s).

What Kind Of Damages Are Considered Personal Injury?

Damages on the other hand, are the sum total of all of the losses that a person has suffered as a consequence of the injury. This includes, inter alia:

  • Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Out-of- pocket expenses;
  • Past lost income;
  • Earning capacity;
  • Cost of future care;
  • Future loss of earnings;
  • Pre-judgment interest; and
  • Legal costs.

We Work With You, Not Insurance Companies

A successful action will demonstrate and prove that the defendant(s) are liable and that the injuries sustained are through the fault of the defendant(s). When your file is opened with a lawyer, typically a lawyer will contact the defendant’s insurance company and put them on notice of the claim.

At Bernstein Law Group, we stay closely connected to your network of medical professionals as well as introduce you to some that we highly recommend. While on the road to recovery, our lawyers strive to encourage your recovery while also protecting your case.

Contact Bernstein Law Group now to discuss your case and get you the results you deserve.
