The body of personal injury law was created to make sure that people who suffer some from injury, through another person’s negligence or intent, can be properly compensated. These laws cover a wide range of circumstances, but the most common sources for a personal injury case include:
- Car Accidents
- Slips and Falls
- Dog Bites
- Defective Products
- Medical Malpractice
- Assault and Battery
Of course, these are not the only cases that may prompt a personal injury case. So how do you know if you should take the first steps to build a case?
Whether you seek compensation or not, the first thing you should always do is seek medical attention. Once you have been diagnosed and treated, that is when you can call a personal injury attorney and find out if you have a case for proper compensation.
