Pender County NC Personal Injury Attorney - Injury Lawyer
Personal injury law is the area of law dealing with people who have been injured, physically or otherwise, resulting from the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, or other entity. Personal injury lawyers are generally more knowledgeable and have more experience dealing with the area of law involving torts. A tort (a French word for wrong) is a civil wrong in which a duty (such as the duty of reasonable care) to another is breached, and that breach causes damages to a person. When this occurs, such as in a car wreck where a defendant breaches the duty of care in traffic causing an accident, the plaintiff is entitled to compensation for the injuries sustained in the automobile accident.
Personal injury law includes, but is not limited to: work injuries, automobile accidents, tractor trailer accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, and many other types of injuries.
In order to maximize the recovery for plaintiffs, personal injury attorneys should prepare the case in the beginning as if it were going to proceed to trial. This protects the case if a trial is necessary, and shows the insurance company or defense counsel what would be proven at trial.
