What Is a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases are when an individual suffers an injury due to negligence. The negligence may be on the part of another driver, a company producing a faulty or dangerous product, a misdiagnosis by a physician, or a store owner who does not take precautions to prevent slip and fall accidents. The following are a few of the areas covered by personal injury laws:

  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Vehicular accidents
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Dog bites
  • Defects in medical devices

How to Choose the Best Personal Injury Lawyer 

Choosing an accident attorney can be difficult. Injured victims know they want to recover damages, including medical costs and lost time from work. One tip is to select an Anderson car accident lawyer whose practice focuses solely on personal injury cases. They know how to deal with insurance companies which often offer much less than the victim deserves.

It is also possible to check an attorney's track record by looking at their verdicts and settlements. You'll see how many cases have been won and the settlement value.

Finally, personal injury cases are paid on a contingency basis. This means that the client pays nothing until the case is won. To do that, lawyers have a war chest from which expenses are paid. An Anderson personal injury attorney who has won consistently high settlements is more than likely to have this flexibility.
