A personal injury can result from an accident when a person least expects it. This can be an injury that results from the negligence, carelessness, or intentional act of another party in which the victim sustains cognizable legal damages. This type of injury can result from a car accident, a slip and fall, dog bites, assaults, and more. If you have sustained a personal injury as the result of the negligence or misconduct of another party, you are entitled to file a claim for compensation for the damages that you have sustained.
2Who is Responsible?
The owner of a premises is generally responsible for keeping the business premises safe for business invitees and guests to enter. Sometimes this duty can be neglected by the owner of the premises and an unexpected injury can occur to a patron. When these types of injuries occur, the owner of the premises can be held liable for the injuries that you sustain. If you have been the victim of a personal injury on the property of another, it would be wise for you to consult with a personal injury attorney in your area to find out what your legal rights are and what type of compensation you can expect.
3What Should you Do?
If you have suffered a personal injury, the first thing that you should do is seek proper medical attention. Then, you will want to file a claim with the other party’s insurance company for the cost of medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and or property damages. If the amount of compensation you are seeking is rather small, the insurance company may pay the claim without a problem. If, however, you have sustained substantial damages, you will want to seek the services of an attorney to help you file your claim.
