Do I have a personal injury case?

Personal injury cases usually occur when one person causes an injury to another person due to their negligence or recklessness. These cases often arise from auto accidents, slip and falls, and other preventable incidents.

You may have a personal injury case if someone else caused your accident and as a result you suffered damages and/or injuries in that accident. If you have medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering then there is a high likelihood that you have a valid claim.

How much compensation can I get in a personal injury case?

The amount you may recover will vary depending on the severity of your injuries

Personal injury victims can recover two types of losses after an accident:

  • Economic, and
  • Non-economic losses

Types of economic losses include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost
earning capacity and property damage. Non-economic losses cover personal losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, physical disfigurement, etc.
