LIABILITY IN A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM

CLAIM COMPENSATION FOR YOUR ACCIDENT

Ford & Laurel personal injury attorneys are committed to ensuring accident victims and their families receive claim compensation for the wrongs they have suffered. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident that you believed was caused by the other party, you have come to right place to receive the help you need. A Ford & Laurel personal injury lawyer may be able to help you recover monetary damages to pay for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering including emotional distress which you have experienced.

If your car accident, motorcycle accident or truck accident was caused by the other driver, you should have grounds to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim. The same is true in cases of injuries or illnesses caused by medical malpractice, as well as in product liability cases in which defective products or dangerous drugs are the cause of an injury or death. Whatever the circumstances of your case, you should not be forced to pay the price for an accident that you did not cause.

LIABILITY INSURANCE CLAIMS VS. LAWSUITS

Depending on the circumstances of your case, your claim may be filed directly against the party who is responsible for causing your accident, or it may be against his or her insurance policy. Most traffic accident cases, for example, end up with a claim being filed against the at-fault driver’s liability insurance policy, since the purpose of such insurance is to defend the policy holder against legal action over an accident. In cases that do not involve insurance, whether you are pursuing action against an uninsured motorist or against a corporation, you will be filing a direct lawsuit. In either scenario, you will be seeking to hold the other party liable for the losses that you have suffered in the aftermath of the accident.

HOLD THE OTHER PARTY LIABLE AND SEEK JUSTICE

Enforcing the liability of the other party is not only a matter of recovering financial compensation. By taking legal action against the person who caused your injury or your family member’s death, you are also holding that party responsible for his or her actions and seeking justice for the wrongs you have suffered. In some cases, this may even result in additional consequences, such as if your lawsuit against a manufacturer ends up in a product recall. You may not only be able to claim monetary damages for yourself and your family, but you could also protect others from suffering similar wrongs.
