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.
