Personal injury refers to physical or emotional injuries that a person suffers due to another person’s negligence. Personal injury claims allow injured victims to receive monetary compensation for damages related to the accident.
This can depend on a variety of factors, namely whether or not you suffered damages. If you were in an accident caused by another’s negligence but did not suffer injuries or losses, then it may be difficult to prove a claim. An attorney can review your accident to determine if you have a valid case.

This can vary greatly depending on the nature of your injuries, the extent of the damages caused, medical bills, missed wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. You should consult an attorney to help you determine the fair value of your claim. Insurers will typically offer a very low settlement to victims - make sure that you are aware of all your rights and the true value of your case before accepting any offer.
A significant number of cases are settled before a lawsuit is even filed. Having a skilled and knowledgeable attorney can be an asset if you are looking to efficiently yet effectively reach a fair settlement.
The police must read the Miranda warnings before they interrogate someone who is in custody. Whether a custodial interrogation is occurring depends on the specific circumstances.
Search and seizure rules apply when law enforcement conducts a search that invades a citizen’s legitimate expectation of privacy. The expectation must be objectively reasonable in the situation.
Very few criminal cases go to trial. Over 90 percent of all cases result in a plea bargain, in which the defendant pleads guilty or no contest in exchange for a lesser charge or lighter sentence.
