Personal injury cases are legal matters that take place when someone suffers an injury and subsequent damages, economic or non-economic, from the actions of another. In most cases, the responsible person's insurance company will pay money to the injured person after the injured person proves their case. The money is for covering items such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Personal Injury cases are civil proceedings. Civil proceedings seek to serve financial justice and are very different than criminal proceedings. There are no state-appointed attorneys in civil matters. The cases are handled through negotiations with the at-fault parties insurance company and civil courts. Many cases are resolved through direct negotiations and never enter the civil court system. However, some personal injury cases do result in lawsuits and end up in the courts. It is always the injured person's choice if they want to file a lawsuit or if they want to settle their claim.
Additionally, insurance policies may dictate how part of a personal injury case is handled. If you have questions about how your case should be pursued, you can request a free personal injury consultation with one of our attorneys.
Car accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury matters. Critically, every driver must legally have insurance coverage to drive on the roads in the United States. It should be noted that insurance companies employ adjusters and their own attorneys to reduce their potential financial liability and maximize their profit. As such, you need to know if you should employ an attorney yourself.
When a car accident leads to significant damages it can be a good idea to retain a personal injury lawyer. This is because a capable personal injury attorney knows how to build your case and make sure insurance companies pay fair settlements. Personal injury matters have many things to know about such as Insurance policies, statutory deadlines, medical examinations, contributory negligence, and much much more. We offer free personal injury consultations. Give us a call (971-205-3266) to learn more about your potential claim.
Personal Injury claims seek to obtain financial compensation for personal injury caused by the negligence of another. Moreover, there are a few common types of personal injury for which compensation can be claimed. It is vital to know the difference between these types of personal injuries. This allows you to structure your claim for fair and complete compensation.
A personal injury generally falls under at least one of three categories. First off, there are physical injuries to the body, ranging from whiplash and bruises to catastrophic injury and even wrongful death. Second, there are injuries to the brain, generally referred to as traumatic brain injuries. Third, there are mental health injuries, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Individuals with any of these types of injuries incur medical expenses in their recovery and they also suffer impacts on life. Determining the total sum of medical expenses needing to be recovered is relatively straightforward as medical expenses are documented by medical providers. However, determining the appropriate amount needing to be recovered for impact on life, often referred to at "pain and suffering" or "harms and losses" is less straightforward and the insurance adjuster will likely try to convince you that it is less than you deserve.
A free consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney will help you understand what damages you may claim for compensation.
Personal injury law is tort law. A simple definition of tort law is the area of law that seeks to redress a wrong done to a person and provide relief from the wrongful acts of others. This is usually done through monetary compensation.
In other words, personal injury law concerns getting financial compensation (money) to deal with the damage that someone else caused you. This almost always involves going through insurance companies.
We offer free personal injury consultations. The consultations are free because we need to see if we are the right law firm for you and to see if you actually need help. To elaborate, we usually experience three different types of consultations. First, some people can handle their own matters but simply need to be pointed towards the right resources so they are not taken advantage of by an insurance company. Second, some people have circumstances that fall outside of our area of practice. These cases are referred to attorneys we know that can potentially better serve their needs. Finally, there are the cases where we think we can get you better compensation for your injuries than you would by yourself.

Many people do not realize that in order to receive the medical treatment needed to recover from injuries suffered in an accident, they will have to interact with their own insurance company. What many people find even more surprising is that their own insurance company always has a financial motivation to pay as little possible for their insured’s medical treatment.
While this is happening, it is crucial to investigate what caused your injury to occur. In other words, what caused the accident that you were a victim of? This investigation, which ideally occurs in the days immediately after you were injured, is vital if you are forced to go to trial to receive compensation for medical treatment, wage loss, and pain and impairment. The attorneys at Johnson Law are experienced at handling personal injury claims, and they will work aggressively to make sure that your rights under the law are protected and that ultimately you obtain the justice you deserve.
