In many ways, an accident can be devastating. Whether you’ve broken a bone in a car accident, hurt your back in a slip-and-fall, or suffered any number of personal injuries, a personal injury lawyer can help. 

Following a personal injury, it can be challenging to adapt to the new physical restrictions of your recovery. You may have hospital or doctor’s bills—a financial stressor made worse by time away from work. Finally, dealing with the emotional consequences of knowing your accident was caused by the carelessness of another can leave you despondent. Fortunately, a personal injury lawyer can help you take action. By filing a civil suit against the at-fault party, you could recover damages for your injuries. The process can be challenging, however—between investigating your case, filing paperwork on time, and even negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company. Let our Nashville TN personal injury lawyer review your case.


Personal Injury Claims: An Explainer

Personal injury covers a broad range of physical damages you are likely to suffer in an accident. Some personal injuries are minor; others, are quite serious. Injuries can also be classified as temporary or permanent, or total and partial, depending on the restrictions these may impose on your livelihood and ability to care for yourself. Some personal injury types include:

  • Back, spinal cord, or lumbar injury
  • Brain injury
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • And others

Personal injury law, also referred to as tort law, is a subset of civil law that protects you if you believe that you or your property has been damaged by another person’s action, and in some circumstances, inaction. At the very heart of personal injury law are negligence and damages: in order to file a winning claim, you have to prove that another party acted negligently, consequently causing your damages.

And what does filing a claim do for you? As the victim of personal injury caused by other persons, filing a claim allows you to seek economic compensation, otherwise known as damages, from the at-fault person or group. The kind of compensation that may be available to you in a personal injury action is largely determined by the nature and extent of the damages you’ve received. In the past, personal injury plaintiffs have succeeded in presenting claims for damages of both economic and non-economic nature. The following are some examples:

  • Property damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of income
  • Medical bills, including emergency fees and bills for ongoing treatment 
  • Temporary or permanent disability 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Often, it can be confusing to determine the true value of your personal injury claim. That’s why reaching out to a trusted doctor is not only a great way to seek treatment for your injuries, but also to get a better idea of your medical expenses. With your medical expenses as the cornerstone, your claim can be strengthened by allowing a skilled personal injury lawyer to engage in the process of civil discovery.
