Personal Injury

Charlotte, NC - Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury is a broad category that describes injury or damages caused by another's wrongful or negligent act, or failure to act when required to do so. Personal injury claims are filed in civil court with the purpose of obtaining compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages, damages for pain and suffering and other expenses related to a serious injury.

Personal injury is classified by the type of accident, nature of the injury or other circumstance under which the harm occurred. Examples of personal injuries include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Auto Accident
  • Catastrophic Injury
  • Head Injury
  • Brain Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Wrongful Death
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Construction Accidents
  • Dog Bite
  • Amputation
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Professional Malpractice
  • Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
  • Motor Vehicle Accident
  • Birth Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Burns
  • Paralysis
  • Product Liability
  • Slip & Fall

In order to prove liability in a personal injury claim, the attorney must show intentional conduct or negligence on the part of the party responsible for the injury. In many instances, experts such as physicians, accident reconstructionists, technical specialists and other professionals are required for analysis and evaluation as well as to testify in a claim. Reasonable precaution must be lacking in order to prove negligence. Examples of negligence could include unsafe driving that causes an auto accident or failure to diagnose a medical condition that results in wrongful death.
