LET US HELP YOU THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL INJURY
When you are involved in a serious accident, your life can change in the blink of an eye. Sooner than you understand what’s happening, you may be facing large medical bills and other economic expenses, disability, and a disruption to the quality of your life. If your accident and injuries were the fault of another party, you may have a cause of action for a personal injury claim against that party. At the Delventhal Law Office, our Columbia City personal injury lawyer can represent you in pursuing compensation for your harm and holding the responsible party liable for your losses. Please reach out to us directly today for your free consultation.
What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a type of a civil action that is completely separate and distinct from a criminal action (although, in some cases, a defendant may have both civil and criminal charges brought against them). In a personal injury claim, the plaintiff (injured party) alleges that the defendant breached the duty of care owed to the plaintiff by doing something negligent–a failure to exercise the reasonable degree of care for a given situation–and that the negligence was the proximate cause of harm. If the plaintiff is successful, then the defendant can be held liable for the value of the plaintiff’s economic and noneconomic damages.
Most personal injury claims are settled with insurance adjusters outside of court. If settlements are unsuccessful, then filing a lawsuit against a defendant may be the best course of action.
