A personal injury case can be filed when an injury causes harm to you or a loved one physically, mentally, or emotionally. The lawsuit will be filed against the person or entity that has caused your injury. These injuries can be due to negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct. In a personal injury case, the damages you incur may include but are not limited to, medical bills, pain and or suffering, and a diminished quality of life. When filing for personal injury, you (as in the plaintiff) will have a limited amount of time to submit your lawsuit. This is what we call the statute of limitations. This amount of time is usually determined by when the injury occurred, or when you have noticed the injury. During this time you must seek out a trustworthy attorney to begin the process.

How do these cases work?
No two personal injury cases are the same. Every injury is different, and the damages incurred may vary, but there are standard steps that we base most claims off to ensure the big picture is met. These include:
