PERSONAL INJURY

Legal Claims for personal injuries are legal claims asserted by someone who has been injured through no fault of their own or as the result, in whole or part, as the result of the negligence of another person, company, or governmental entity. In any personal injury claim it is important to seek legal counsel immediately as your right and ability to recover against an at fault party will become more difficult as time progresses. You should always seek immediate medical attention and document/photograph any injuries sustained.
