The initial days after you suffer a personal injury can be confusing. What has happened? To what extent have I been injured? How long will it take for me to heal? What does this mean for my future? Who is responsible? Am I entitled to compensation? Who do I call for help?
The impact of an injury on you and your loved ones can vary greatly, and the impact an injury can have on your life can be drastic. We are a small, but experienced firm that takes pride in delivering personalized attention to you and are committed to protecting your legal rights as we navigate together what can be one of the most frustrating and difficult periods of your life.
What Is a Personal Injury?
In a personal injury case, the plaintiff claims to have suffered an injury to the mind or body that was directly caused through negligent, reckless or wanton action or inaction of another. Personal injuries can result from a number of different situations, but commonly litigated scenarios include:
- Auto accident
- Back injury
- Brain injury
- Premises liability
- Burn injury
- Construction accident
- Dog bite
- Electrical injury
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle accident
- Wrongful death
Although the injury can never be undone, the injury lawyer’s goal is to minimize the damage by obtaining compensation for the victim’s losses. This loss can include monetary damages, property damages, past and future out of pocket medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, emotional distress, loss of consortium or companionship, legal costs and punitive damages.
How Do I Know If I Have a Case?
If you have suffered a personal injury, you may wonder if you have the grounds to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, personal injury laws are complex and every personal injury cannot result in litigation. Once we listen to the facts and details of your experience, we can determine whom, if anyone, is liable and advise you as to your legal rights.
Types of personal injury cases that The Jaeger Firm, PLLC, frequently handles are automobile accidents, including automobile collisions and automobile-pedestrian accidents, premises liability cases involving injuries received from a dangerous condition on another’s property, and dog-bite cases. The Jaeger Firm, PLLC, also assists clients who have been injured as a result of public transportation or “common carrier” accidents and medical malpractice claims. We also assist individuals in resolving insurance disputes and subrogation claims that a third-party may make against any recovery for the payment of medical expenses associated with a personal injury.
Initial consultations on these matters are usually free of charge.
