When you suffer an injury due to the negligence or recklessness of another, it can be overwhelming to manage the physical, emotional and financial consequences that can result. Whether you were the victim of a car accident or fell on someone else's property, you may feel stressed and confused over what to do next.
Personal injury is the area of law that seeks to compensate people who have been injured by the negligence of another party. When someone accidentally causes harm, either directly or indirectly, a personal injury suit can force the negligent party to compensate the victim for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

The most common form of personal injury lawsuit comes after accidents on the roadway. Some of the most common types of accidents include:
Truck crashes — Due to fatigued driving, poor visibility (blind spots), driver error, improper load balancing, mechanical failure, trucking company negligence and more
Pedestrian accidents — In crosswalks and along the sides of roads
Bicycle accidents — Caused by inattentive or distracted drivers, failure to yield right of way, dangerous roads and more
Motorcycle crashes — Often caused by distracted, fatigued or intoxicated drivers operating passenger vehicles and large commercial trucks
Multivehicle collisions — As a result of another crash, stalled vehicle that is not pulled over far enough to the side, poor road conditions, inclement weather, reckless driving or other unsafe conditions
Boating accidents — Caused by an inexperienced operator, intoxication or reckless operation of a boat or watercraft
Recreational vehicle crashes — Involving ATVs and other recreational motor vehicles
School bus accidents — As a result of poor road conditions, poor maintenance, vehicle defects, other drivers and more
Mass transit accidents — On trains, city buses or other forms of mass transit
Whether you were involved in a minor fender bender or a serious rollover crash, any accident can leave victims with a number of serious — even permanent and disabling — injuries such as incurable back injuries and spinal cord damage.
Car accidents are not the only cause of serious injuries. Any injury caused by another party's negligence can lead to a lawsuit. This includes property owner negligence that leads to slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites and animal attacks, and other situations where a property owner fails to uphold safety standards on their premises.
When you suffer an injury in the workplace, you may be hesitant to report your injury and take the restful time off you need to recover. It can be troubling to think of the long-term financial effects your injury could have on you and your family. We can assist with questions or concerns you may have during this time, including whether you are eligible to file a workers' compensation claim and how to obtain the recovery efforts you need.
When a dangerous driver injures an innocent party, the victim has a right to be compensated for his or her medical bills and other related losses. Oftentimes, however, insurance companies are reluctant to pay the full amount, and may even use common tactics to avoid paying at all. That is why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer at your side.
At The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, we will negotiate with the insurance companies to ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve. If necessary, we will take the case to trial and prove your case before a jury.
