    Why File A Civil Lawsuit for A Personal Injury?

    Sometimes, another party’s negligence or recklessness directly caused your pain and suffering. When this happens, it is considered a “personal injury” that can be remedied through the civil court system.

    The chief goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to help you recover from your financial losses and help you cover unanticipated future expenses. Personal injury settlements and verdicts can help you prevent bankruptcy and “make you whole again” with reimbursement for:

    • Past, current, and future medical expenses, including rehabilitation, surgeries, copays, and medication
    • Lost wages, loss of future earnings, and diminished earning capacity
    • Physical or vocational rehabilitation and medical assistive devices
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of consortium and financial support for spouses
    • Loss of guidance and financial support for dependents
    • Wrongful death, funeral, and burial costs

    Do not hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney. The standard of evidence is lower in civil court, and there is an expanded scope of liability that allows you to hold entities accountable, rather than just individuals. For instance, if you were hit by a semi-truck driver, you may be able to hold the driver’s company accountable for federal violations, poor training, or poor vehicle maintenance. If you received an infection after surgery, you may be able to sue the insured hospital for failing to have emergency protocols in place, rather than the surgeon. Consulting with a civil attorney is the best way to know if you have a substantial claim.

    What Our Clients Say

    "The staff at Rutter Mills worked for me from the first minute I was in their office. They called and emailed every week and kept better records than I did. I was injured and had to undergo two operations from the accident. The recovery period was long with many physical therapy sessions over the next year. The staff emailed me many times, asking if there was anything they could do to make me feel better during my recovery. During this time my attorney was active in filing the paperwork for court litigation, but was contacted by the other law firm that wished to discuss settling my case. Depositions were done and the final one was scheduled and I was present to complete that phase of the case. My attorney got a maximum award for me and I will be forever grateful for his and their staff's work and attention during my time of legal need. Rutter Mills will be my only call if I ever need legal representation in the future." ★★★★★ -Dan, Rutter Mills Client
