Personal Injury is the area of law which covers injuries sustained as a result of another's negligence. Negligence is defined as the failure to use reasonable care to avoid a foreseeable harm to a person, place or thing. An individual will be liable if his or her unreasonable act or failure to act causes an injury, even if the harm is unintentional. Generally, personal injury cases are done on a contingency bases, meaning that there are no fees to be paid unless we recover money for you. This means no attorney fees and no costs of any kind. If there Is no recovery, we absorb all expenses - including attorney fees.
