Personal Injury Settlements
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to a personal injury settlement. At the Law Firm of Oscar Ischiu, Esq, we understand that the process of seeking compensation for your injuries can be overwhelming. That’s why we are here to guide you through the process and help you explore your options.
What is a Personal Injury Settlement?
A personal injury settlement is a monetary agreement between the person who was injured and the person or entity that caused the injury. The settlement is usually reached out of court, but can also be awarded by a judge or jury in a court case. The purpose of a settlement is to compensate the injured person for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Exploring Your Options
When it comes to personal injury settlements, there are several options to consider. One option is to negotiate a settlement directly with the person or entity that caused the injury. This can be done through the assistance of an attorney or through mediation. Another option is to file a lawsuit and take the case to court. This option is typically used when the parties are unable to reach a settlement agreement on their own.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
When it comes to personal injury settlements, there are many different types of cases that can arise. Some common types of personal injury cases include:
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability
In any personal injury case, evidence is crucial. Evidence can include things like police reports, medical records, and witness statements. An attorney can help you gather this evidence and use it to build a strong case. In trucking accident cases, evidence can include things like the truck driver’s logs, maintenance records, and black box data.
