Personal Injury/Automobile Accidents

We Fight For The Compensation You Deserve

Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. In local jurisdictions, the term is most commonly used to refer to a type of tort lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff’s injury has been caused by the negligence of another, but also in defamation torts. Damages include bodily injury, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
