Personal Injury Law

If you have been injured due to someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensatory and/or punitive damages.

Personal injury includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Medical malpractice – carelessness (intentional or accidental) by a medical professional resulting in catastrophic injury
  • Auto or truck accidents – disregard for the operation of a motorized vehicle resulting in unnecessary and life altering injury. Includes motorcycle, boats, and other motorized vehicles
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect – includes emotional, physical, and financial abuse, manipulation, or neglect by senior healthcare providers
  • Workplace injury – disregard of standard, safe, and lawful practices by companies or corporations which lead to illness, injury, disability, or death of an individual
  • Product liability – the manufacturing and sale of products which cause injury, illness, or death to the public consumer
  • Wrongful death – results from the wrongful or willful misconduct of another with a wanton disregard for the safety or life of others.

Each case is different both in manner and individual circumstances. As well, personal injury lawsuits are brought about through a civil action. Civil laws vary greatly from criminal actions and require a preponderance of evidence, which carry more weight in deciding guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. For this reason it is imperative that you seek the advice of the personal injury attorneys at Hands Law Firm who are well versed and knowledgeable in civil law.
