                Now for an introduction to personal injury:

 

                If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled monetary compensation. This area of law is known as personal injury.

 

                 To recover on a personal injury claim, you must prove two elements. First, as the name implies, you must have an injury. The more serious the injury, the larger is the potential financial recovery. Second, your injury must have been caused by the negligence of another person or party, such as a business or a government entity.

 

No matter how serious the injury, you will not be able to recover compensation if your injury was not caused by the negligence of another. Similarly, even if the other person or party was negligent, you will receive no compensation if the negligence caused you no injuries or only minor injuries.

 

                  Even if you can establish these two elements, a successful personal injury claim requires that the person responsible for your injury have the financial resources to compensate you or have an insurance policy with sufficient coverage. Even if the responsible person has no resources or insurance, however, you may benefit from laws that protect victims of accidents. For example, in New York, a state fund exists to reimburse victims injured by a car that had no insurance.

 

                 We charge a legal fee on a contingency basis, which means that you are not obliged to pay us a legal fee unless we are successful in obtaining monetary compensation for you. Expenses related to your legal claim are advanced by us and reimbursed from any monetary compensation that we obtain for you.
