Personal Injury Overview
Personal injury law exists to compensate an injury victim for injuries suffered because of the negligence or misconduct of another.
Personal injury law is a broad category that includes injuries from a wide range of accidents, including:
- Motor vehicles accidents such as car crashes and truck accidents
- Accidents on another’s property such as a slip and fall or an animal attack
- Workplace accidents, including those on construction sites
- Fatal accidents involving wrongful death
Not all injury cases fall neatly within a category, so if you are injured, we encourage you to contact a Columbia personal injury attorney at Allen, Nelson & Wilson to discuss your rights under the law.
Personal injury cases also often include many types of serious injuries to the neck and back, other fractures and broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, burns, scarring and other devastating injuries. An experienced attorney at the firm can help you document how these injuries were the result of the accident situation and how to maximize your compensation opportunities under the law through aggressive negotiation and litigation, when necessary.
What types of damages are recoverable in a personal injury case?
Plaintiffs in personal injury cases can often recover money damages not only for medical expenses and lost wages, but also damages for pain and suffering, property damage, emotional distress, lost future earnings and permanent disability. The firm may also be able to help you recover compensation for other damages and injuries, depending on each individual case.
