Personal Injury Information
If you have been injured because of someone else’s wrongful behavior, you may be entitled to win damages in court. To win, you must prove certain facts that entitle you to damages. You can claim damages for many different aspects of your injury, including past and future medical bills, lost work time, and pain and suffering. Damages for pain and suffering are often several times as large as damages for medical bills and lost work time. In negligence cases, your damages may be reduced if the accident was partially your fault. In a few states you cannot receive any damages if the accident was even one percent your fault.
