What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
More Than Just Physical Injuries
The term “personal injury” is a legal description for an injury that a person can sustain to their body, mind or emotions. It’s important to note that in many personal injury cases, the property of the injured can also be damaged. Most personal injury claims also include a request for damages which are sufficient to repair or replace any damaged property.
Some examples of personal injury claims include:
Physical Injury – Injuries to a person’s body which occur due to the negligence of the at-fault party. For example, a motorcyclist who suffers a broken leg after being hit by an impaired driver would have a claim for personal injury.
Psychological / Emotional damage – Victims of traumatic accidents often have lasting emotional or psychological damage, which can interfere with their daily life. An example of this would be a mother who was traumatized after seeing her son injured after a collision, or a freeway auto accident victim who is unable to drive for fear of being involved in another crash.
Damage to property – Often in accidents involving motor vehicles, the vehicle itself is damaged or totaled. The cost of the repair or replacement of your vehicle, or any other damaged property, can be included as part of your claim.
If you or someone you love has been injured, our team of Oklahoma personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and resources to fight for your maximum compensation benefits.
The Edwards Law Firm Fights for You
How We Can Help You
After an accident, you may find yourself bombarded with calls from insurance companies, and the other party’s attorneys or investigators. Many insurance companies will send out “estimators” that are trained to de-value your claim and offer you settlements which are far from what your claim is worth.
At the law offices of The Edwards Law Firm, we are aware of the tricks and tactics that these insurance companies use on injury victims, and can help to shield you from their inquires. We are also highly trained in our respective fields, and can assemble a robust case for your injury compensation – which may include provision for:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills
- Ongoing treatments
- Lost income
- Permanent disability
- Loss of intimate relations with a spouse or partner
- Damages (punishment) for the responsible parties
It’s important to note that in most states throughout the U.S, injury lawsuits must be filed within a set period of time after the incident. With that in mind, by contacting our staff shortly after your incident has occurred, we can begin protecting your best interests, and enable you to focus on your recovery.
