Understanding Personal Injury Claims
In personal injury cases, one or more parties cause another harm through negligence, reckless behavior, or malicious behavior. Common personal injury cases involve:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Tripping or slip and fall claims
- Work accidents
- Product defects
- Medical negligence
In order to obtain compensation in a personal injury claim, you must be able to prove that another party was at fault for your accident or injury. Without an advanced understanding of the law, this process can be extremely difficult. Mr. Edgar can gather evidence and build a strong case to help you collect what you are owed.
By hiring a personal injury attorney who has spent over 30 years representing injured clients, you are far more likely to achieve an outcome that serves your best interests and allows you to rebuild your life.
Types of Compensation
Money does not erase the emotional and physical pain caused by an injury or wrongful death, but it can ease the stress of medical bills and help you begin to rebuild your life. With Mr. Edgar's help, you can pursue compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost earnings
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
For more severe cases, such as those involving traumatic brain injuries, you may be able to pursue further compensation for the cost of ongoing care and the inability to work.
Your Legal Options
There are two main ways to resolve a personal injury case. The most common method involves an informal settlement, during which the individuals personally involved in the suit, along with their insurers and legal representation, gather to negotiate a written agreement. This agreement typically requires both sides to forgo any further action in exchange for payment of an agreed-upon amount of money. However, there are situations in which signing a settlement will not provide you with the best outcome. In those cases, Mr. Edgar is willing and able to take your case to court.
Going to court involves initiating a formal lawsuit in which you file a civil complaint against another person, business, corporation, or government agency. During a trial, you must prove that their actions were directly responsible for your injury or illness. Edgar Law Firm will always pursue the maximum compensation possible for your case by carefully illustrating who is responsible for your losses.
