Personal injury, unlike property damages, involves injury to a person’s body, mind, or emotional state. For anyone to claim damages, the personal injury must be caused by the negligence of another person, company, entity, or agency.
Damages for Personal Injury
Personal injury can involve various types of damages such as ‘compensatory’ damages and ‘punitive’ damages. Damages referred to as compensatory are aimed at restoring the injured party to the same condition physically, financially, and emotionally as they were prior to the accident. Punitive damages are intended to deter the negligent party from continuing to behave recklessly in the same manner that caused the accident.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury covers a wide range of accidents and injuries arising from the fault or negligence of other parties. They include:
- Auto Accident
- Bicycle Accident
- Brain Injury
- Bus Accident
- Dog Bite
- Motorcycle Accident
- Pedestrian Accident
- Premises Liability
- Slip and Fall
- Spine Injury
- Truck Accident
- Wrongful Death
Our Firm handles any type of motor vehicle accident, as well as slip and fall, dog bites, premise liability, products liability, and other types of injuries resulting from negligence.
Our Experience in Personal Injury Claims
The Law Office of Samuel I. Kane has more than 10 years of experience in personal injury claims, handling over hundreds of cases involving car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and 18-wheeler accidents. We have helped clients not only in negotiating settlements but also in taking cases to trial when insurance companies fail to offer a fair settlement to our clients.
Our attorneys work hard to obtain the maximum value that our clients legally deserve and are prepared to litigate cases regardless of the value of their claims.
Importance of a Personal Injury Attorney
Many insurance companies cover accidents that give rise to personal injury claims. Injured parties will often try to present their claims directly with the insurance company and negotiate with good faith for a fair settlement.
Insurance claims adjusters, however, are trained to minimize the injured party’s claim and offer an amount that is far less than what the injured party may be entitled to. A Las Cruces personal injury attorney can help by assessing your situation, determining the full extent of your injuries, and maximizing the value of your claim.
