Personal Injury

Personal Injury

Personal injury law is designed to compensate one for damages suffered because of someone else’s fault. Unfortunately, people are injured everyday due to intentional infliction of harm, negligence, and failure to comply with laws intended to protect the public.

Every claim for personal injury has three primary issues: liability, damages, and recoverability. As for liability, multiple parties may be held liable for the injuries one suffers. For example, in a car accident, potential liable parties include manufacturers for producing defective vehicles, other drivers for negligently operating their cars, and public entities for dangerously designing or failing to maintain the roadway.

As for damages, one can seek compensation for not only special damages such as medical expenses, lost income, or property loss, but also for general damages, including physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, or loss of consortium. Furthermore, in egregious circumstances, one can pursue punitive damages to punish responsible parties and to deter similar conduct.

Finally, and often overlooked, is the critical question of whether one’s damages are even recoverable from the liable parties. Therefore, it is imperative to investigate early on all available sources of recovery, including insurance policies and financial assets.

L&K attorneys are prepared to obtain full compensation for those who have suffered, or are still suffering, harm as a result of motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, products liability, premises liability, battery, sexual assault, or elder abuse and neglect.
