An identification of those liable for the harm you experienced and evidence that proves negligence makes for a good personal injury case. If you suffered serious injuries due to the careless actions of another person, you may be entitled to compensation.
A serious and unexpected injury can result in extensive medical costs, missed time from work, and pain and suffering. When you experience trauma due to no fault of your own, a personal injury lawyer can help you.
Reviewing evidence and fighting for the compensation you deserve is just a part of how a personal injury lawyer can represent your interests. Knowing someone is on your side during this difficult time can ease your mind and help you focus on your health and recovery.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Negligence is commonly a core issue of most personal injury cases. When another person fails to use the same care as a reasonable person would in the same circumstances, they may be negligent.
Types of personal injury cases can include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Construction accidents
- Dog bites
These are just a few examples of the types of personal injury cases that occur because of serious harm. Depending upon the severity of your injuries, you may never engage in activities you once enjoyed or return to your career.
If your life changed in an instant due to the negligence of another person, a personal injury lawyer can determine if you have enough valid evidence to support civil litigation.
Types of Possible Compensation You Could Recover
Possible compensation in personal injury cases includes:
- Medical bills
- Ongoing medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
While there is no way to predict the outcome of your personal injury case, it is your right to hold those liable for your injuries accountable for their actions. You may want to secure legal representation to protect your best interests and future financial needs.

How You Can Help Your Personal Injury Lawyer
There are ways you can help your personal injury lawyer, even if your injuries prevent you from leaving your hospital bed. The following types of evidence can possibly help your case:
- Police reports
- Accident scene photos and/or video
- An incident report, like from a slip and fall accident in a store
- Contact information for witnesses
- Your medical reports and expenses
It is not always possible to gather this evidence if you are recovering from serious injuries. A loved one can help you gather some (or all) of the evidence if necessary.
In addition to gathering evidence, you can help by not speaking with the insurance company without legal representation. It is not unusual for the insurance company to offer you a settlement soon after your accident.
You can help your case by simply referring insurance companies to your personal injury lawyer. Most initial settlement offers are low-dollar amounts aimed at protecting the insurance company and not you.
Planning for your future medical care is essential. Seek legal representation and let your lawyer handle the details of your case.
