Beyond all of our organization and meticulous planning, accidents still happen and sometimes we’re left standing there holding the pieces of what’s left. The fact is, so much of life is outside our control and it’s impossible to account for every possibility. Occasionally a personal injury lays us up longer than we expect. We can get hurt at any time or any place; whether it’s a medical error or something that’s happened on the job, an injury slows you down and can result in loss of much-needed income. In some cases it might be necessary for you to obtain legal help for you injury—that’s where I, attorney Leon Matchin, come in.
Here are the basics for a personal injury case: if you’ve sustained physical harm as the result of someone else’s negligent or deliberate behavior, the law states that careless entities and people are accountable for their actions. This means that those who have sustained injury as a direct result of someone’s negligence can receive compensation to recover damages. Some of the things that you could be compensated for include:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Medication expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Loss of potential future income
- Pain and suffering
