A personal injury is a physical injury inflicted upon a person’s body. Common types of personal injury lawsuits involve defective products, car accidents, occupational diseases and wrongful death cases. These are civil lawsuits, not criminal charges, meaning the injured party or a representative brings the charges rather than the government. The outcome of these cases are monetary damages.

Victims in personal injury cases have a legal right to pursue a claim, but all personal injury cases are subject to a statute of limitations, which vary by the type of claim and which state’s law applies. If you or a loved one has a personal injury lawsuit they’d like to pursue, contact James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. for a free consultation.

The amount of compensation, also known as damages, victims are awarded varies depending on the circumstances of the case, the willingness of the liable party or parties to offer a fair settlement or the decision of a jury if the case goes to trial. Damages you may be entitled to receive include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, modifications to your home or vehicle and long-term care.

No lawyer can promise you any amount of money from your claim.

Two types of damages may be sought during a personal injury case: compensatory and punitive. Compensatory damages seek to reimburse the injured party for the harm they’ve undergone as a result of the incident, including pain and suffering and medical bills. Punitive damages are awarded to punish particularly egregious behavior discourages future misconduct.

After discussing the basics of your case during a free consultation and you choosing us as your legal representation, we further investigate your claim and collect the necessary evidence and statements to pursue your case. If we determine that we have sufficient evidence to proceed, we file a claim on your behalf and pursue damages from the responsible party or parties.

We build our cases on facts and strong evidence, meaning the majority settle without a need to go to court. If, however, the negligent parties, or their insurance companies, don’t make an offer that we feel is appropriate for the suffering our client has undergone, we will take the case to trial and fight for the compensation you deserve.
