In order to understand the purpose of personal injury law, it is important to recognize these two points:
- If someone experiences an injury due to another person’s carelessness, recklessness, or negligence, that person should receive compensation to relieve the burden the injury placed upon them.
- If the other person did not intend to cause harm to others, a jail sentence is not only unfair but it fails to help the injured person relieve the financial burden the injury may have caused.
When an injury has occurred and a criminal trial is inappropriate, personal injury law stands in the gap to ensure the negligent parties take responsibility for their actions. More importantly, personal injury law exists to help relieve the financial burden placed upon the injured party.
Whether you have suffered an injury due to an auto accident, medical malpractice, workplace accident or other incidents, personal injury law is in place to ensure you receive compensation for the negative impact your injury has on your life. A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the field of personal injury law during this difficult time by helping you obtain relief from the pressure of mounting medical bills or the stress of the inability to work.
Our team of Jacksonville personal injury lawyers is dedicated to seeing that personal injury law works as it is designed to. Depending on the nature of each personal injury case, plaintiffs may receive compensation or reimbursement for
- Medical treatment
- Estimated future medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Future lost income
- Property losses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment if the incident has kept you from pursuing everyday enjoyable activities
It is important to remember that not all personal injury plaintiffs will qualify for each of these categories of compensation – the damages particular to your case will depend on its details. However, our experienced lawyers can inform you regarding what to expect and will never promise unreasonable settlements or encourage ill-advised lawsuits to win your business. In fact, at least two lawyers review every case our office accepts, to ensure you receive the most accurate outlook possible.
