What is a Personal Injury?
Most accidents are preventable. A personal injury is the result of an accident caused by negligence, intentional wrongdoing or strict liability. A car crash caused by a drunk driver is an act of negligence. A prescribed drug that causes injury or death to a patient is an example of strict liability.
Should An Injury Victim Accept an Insurance Settlement Offer?
An individual injured in an accident should speak with an attorney before accepting an insurance offer because there may be additional available monetary compensation. If someone is responsible for an accident then that person may be liable to the accident victim. They may pay compensatory and punitive damages for loss of earnings, medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering and loss of companionship or loss of consortium.
