No one leaves their house expecting to be in a car crash or slip and fall accident. Unfortunately, these kinds of events happen every day. Even at home or in the hospital, accidents can still occur.

Sometimes, an accident is little more than an inconvenience, but other times, accidents can cause serious injuries and severely impact your life. When the latter is true, and another person caused or contributed to your accident, our team at ‘MAGGIO LAW is here for you!

What Is Personal Injury?

While the phrase, “personal injury,” appears to be a noun and an adjective, it actually refers to a field of law meant to hold negligent individuals or organizations responsible for any actions or omissions that injure another person. Personal injury litigation is sometimes referred to as “tort law,” in which ‘tort’ is another word for ‘wrongdoing’ and refers to any act or omission that leads to injury or harm.

What Is Negligence?

Negligence is the key to any personal injury claim and is defined by the Legal Information Institute as:

A failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. The behavior usually consists of actions, but can also consist of omissions when there is some duty to act.”

This essentially means that carelessness is prohibited by law. If someone behaves recklessly or overlooks a responsibility, they can typically be held accountable in civil court.

To prove a case of negligence, you must prove:

  • someone owed you a legal duty,
  • they breached that duty,
  • and you suffered an injury due to that breach.

Some situations, like operating a motor vehicle, have an implicit duty of care attached, so personal injury cases usually revolve around demonstrating a breach and showing how it led to the injuries in question.

What Does a Typical Personal Injury Claim Look Like?

The American Bar Association (ABA) states:

Every tort claim…has two basic issues – liability and damage.”

In most cases, ‘liability’ is equivalent to ‘fault’ and ‘damage’ refers to any injuries or losses you sustained as a result of whatever accident, intentional act, or violated duty inspired your case.

The ABA also points to automobile accidents as the most common type of personal injury claim. Breaking down a car accident can help you understand what a typical personal injury case looks like:

First, you get into an accident.

Then, law enforcement and insurance companies investigate the collision.

From there, authorities will determine who is at fault for the accident.

If the other driver caused the crash, they likely failed to exercise reasonable care. Failure to exercise reasonable care includes behaviors like:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol,
  • Texting while driving,
  • Falling asleep at the wheel,
  • Speeding,
  • Tailgating,
  • Failing to yield,
  • And making unsafe lane changes

When they cause your accident, any of the actions above can make a driver liable for the losses associated with that accident.

You can prove damages by furnishing medical bills and financial records, and by testifying about your non-economic losses in court or settlement negotiations.

Our attorneys can help you prove fault, gather evidence, and present your case with clarity and confidence.

What Situations Inspire Personal Injury Lawsuits?

Personal injury suits can arise almost any time one person’s carelessness causes another’s injuries. The circumstances we see most frequently at ‘MAGGIO LAW include:

When multiple people suffer similar injuries from the same source, our firm also handles class-action lawsuits.

No matter how large your opponent, we will not be afraid to fight for your rights.

Why Pursue a Case?

After an accident or serious injury, you may not want to deal with insurance companies and paperwork. You might also be facing expensive medical bills and coping with serious losses. Not only can our firm talk to insurance adjusters and file paperwork on your behalf, but we can also help you recover valuable resources to account for your losses.

If you win your case, you can be compensated for:

  • Outstanding medical bills, including emergency room fees
  • The costs of rehabilitative care
  • Missed wages
  • Changes to your earning potential
  • Lost quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

When the person who harmed you was extremely careless, like a drunk driver, you may also be awarded punitive damages. This compensation is designed to punish the wrongdoer, discourage similar behavior in the future, and provide you with additional comfort and peace of mind.

    There wasn’t a question they couldn’t answer for me and if that certain staff member was unsure, they would find the person there who could accurately answer my question, as opposed to giving me some sort of educated guess.
