What Is Personal Injury?
Personal injury claims and lawsuits arise when people are injured by the carelessness of others, by intentional acts of malice or by products that are defective in some way. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for causing an injury to someone else, that person or company is liable for the injury and may be made to pay the injured person compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are monetary damages that attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she enjoyed before being injured, by ensuring a monetary reward that covers medical bills, lost wages, and compensation for pain, suffering and inconvenience. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded in personal injury lawsuits. If you reside in Lancaster or anywhere in south central Pennsylvania, and you have suffered an injury, then you need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
Personal injury claims are complex and unique, and they involve not only financial but emotional considerations as well. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to ease the burden on individuals who have suffered personal injuries due to others’ negligence.
