What is Personal Injury and Why is It Important to Work with a Personal Injury Attorney?

What is personal injury and why is it important to work with a personal injury attorney if you are injured due to someone else’s negligence?  Personal injury is generally defined as a physical injury which is inflicted upon a person’s body versus the property damage which is done to a vehicle in a car accident.  Kentucky law provides a civil or financial relief when you suffer personal injury due to the negligence of another person or party.

Personal injury covers a broad range of incidents and situations, from motor vehicle accidents to injuries received while at work or on a construction site.  If you suffer an injury while visiting a store or commercial business or due to a fall, abuse or neglect in a nursing home it is considered to be a personal injury.

There are many different legal scenarios and types of recovery such as a “wrongful death” due to the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident cause by another party.  Another example would be the special claims and benefits associated with a FELA related injury claim for railroad workers.

It is important to work with an experienced and proven personal injury attorney to ensure the best possible outcome in your injury related claim and case.  Insurance companies and the adjusters who manage injury claims have one goal in mind: settle your case for the lowest possible figure.
