Helping Injured Victims Demand Compensation

Even the most careful of people can’t avoid being in an accident due to someone else’s negligence. Victims of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, and other kinds of accidents can be seriously hurt, leaving them with expensive medical bills, property damage, and more. If you or your family is in debt because of an accident as a result of negligence, you deserve financial compensation for your losses.

Personal injury claims can be difficult for injured individuals to pursue independently. While resting and recovering from your injuries, the last thing you want to worry about is tracking down insurance agents, negotiating with at-fault parties, and gathering evidence to bolster your claim. By working with an experienced personal injury lawyer on our team, you can focus on your mental and physical health while still getting the compensation you deserve.

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

Personal injury law can be very difficult to pursue on your own without a legal background. Personal injury claims must be proven by the accident victim, which can be challenging to do if you are still recovering from your injuries. By working with our team of personal injury attorneys, you can pursue the damages you deserve to recover while still resting and focusing on your health.

Our personal injury lawyers will begin by learning about your case and your goals for compensation. By evaluating your case, we will learn more about you and your family, plus the accident you were in. We give all potential clients an initial consultation free of charge so you can make your legal decisions without any financial burden.

Next, we will start gathering evidence to bolster your claim. The faster you connect with us, the sooner we can begin transcribing witness testimonies, getting copies of accident reports, and taking photos and videos of the accident scene. We always recommend seeking medical attention so you have a record of your injuries that occurred because of the accident.

Our team will then build you a legal strategy that’s unique to your case. In some instances, it is better to make a claim through an insurance company to get the compensation you deserve. For other cases, filing a lawsuit might be the better route. We will work tirelessly, keeping you and your family in the loop every step of the way.

We will not rest until you’ve received the settlement that you deserve. We are confident that by working with us, you can recover any monetary losses you have suffered as a result of your injuries. For more information about our services, contact our legal team today.

What Qualities Should I Look for in a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many personal injury lawyers are knowledgeable about personal injury law and personal injury claims. When you are looking for a personal injury lawyer, it is essential to find a team with quality past results and a history of success. Most legal professionals claim to put their clients first, but their case results may tell a different story.

At our law firm, we operate under the pillars of professionalism and personalization. We have no shortage of happy clients because we don’t stop until they get the outcomes they deserve. We understand how overwhelming and stress-inducing it can be to pursue a personal injury case, and we always aim to make the legal process easy for our clients.

Before starting any case, we always talk to our clients to get to know them and understand their future goals. Every personal injury case is different, and we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. With our extensive background in a diverse range of personal injury claims, we are confident we can give you the best possible representation for your case.

How Does Cornell Injury Law Stand Out?

Some personal injury legal teams focus solely on getting payment for their clients. While compensation is always the goal, at Cornell Injury Law, we are also focused on seeking justice for you and your family members. The negligent actions or inactions of another party can cause serious injuries, leaving you and your family in debt for medical treatment and future medical care. We know that receiving financial compensation won’t undo the damages you have suffered, but we will do everything in our power to hold guilty parties liable for their actions.

We are a family-oriented team, and we treat our clients like part of that family. We are very serious about our client selection, and we won’t ever take a case unless we are confident we can get the outcome you deserve. We aren’t afraid to take on complex cases, even if other personal injury law firms shy away from them. We are committed to leading by example and always hold our firm name to a high standard.

If you want a devoted legal team to fight for your rights and compensation, look no further than Cornell Injury Law. Contact us today for more information about how we can help you.

How Do Lawyers Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case?

To prove negligence in a personal injury case, you must prove four main elements: duty of care, breach of duty, injury, and damages. As a plaintiff, you must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care or reasonable safety to avoid putting you in danger. When a defendant neglects this duty of care, it is called a breach of duty. A breach of duty is any action that an average reasonable person would not do, like driving under the influence. The plaintiff must prove that this breach caused injury and that their injuries resulted in financial damages, like lost wages, medical expenses, property damage repairs, and more.

What Kind of Damages Can You Pursue in a Personal Injury Claim?

Generally, any expenses you accrued as a result of your accident can be claimed in a personal injury case. Economic damages, like medical bills, property damage repairs, and lost wages, can be easily proven. Non-economic damages like mental anguish and pain and suffering may be more complicated to quantify but can still be requested. You may also be awarded punitive damages if the defendant engaged in extremely hazardous behavior. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant to dissuade them from repeating the action again. Punitive damages are often awarded if the defendant intentionally hid a hazard or was found driving under the influence.

When is the Best Time to Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?

The sooner you call a personal injury attorney, the better it is for your case. While recovering from physical injuries can be overwhelming, many victims tend to forget critical details or neglect to gather key evidence to bolster their case as time goes on. Even if you aren’t sure whether you have a case or not, it is recommended that you reach out to a team of personal injury lawyers as soon as you can. By connecting with a personal injury attorney immediately, you can begin building your case and gather evidence to prove your claim as soon as possible.
