If you feel like legal terms are difficult to understand, you’re not alone. A lot of people put legal matters on a list of things to avoid with root canals and torture.
What does Personal Injury mean?
In legal terms, “personal injury” is used to describe any case in which someone is harmed by another, usually due to negligence. Personal injury cases typically involve workplace injuries, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, dog bites, premises liability, product liability, and wrongful death. These aren’t usually criminal cases, although they can be in some instances.
The end goal of a personal injury case is to secure compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and transportation costs (repair or replacement of vehicles).
Get the Right Legal Assistance
Personal injury attorneys can streamline the legal process, answer questions, provide guidance, and collect evidence that will be critical to your claim’s success. They can also monitor progress and help you complete all of the forms necessary for your claim.
Do you read all of the documentation before approving an update on your phone? If not, you might be surprised at some of the terms you’ve agreed to. In the digital age, we are used to agreeing to things we haven’t read. This shouldn’t be the case with insurance agreements.
Some insurance agreements are particularly lengthy and can be difficult to navigate. Our personal injury attorneys are well-versed in “legalese,” and can act as translators, relaying all of the important information you need to know as you wade through the claims process.
Never trust that an insurance agreement will be in your favor. Know what you’re agreeing to before you offer your signature, digital or otherwise.
