Injuries occur in a number of ways. Some of the most common examples include car accidents, slip-and-falls, and injuries caused at construction sites. Those types of circumstances bring rise to claims sounding in negligence. While the other person or business likely did not intend to create the circumstances that led to your injury, you are still entitled to be compensated for the harm you suffered as a result of their negligence.
While most injuries are accidentally caused, occasionally individuals are harmed by the intentional physical conduct of others. Some of the most common types of intentional conduct that may cause personal injury are assault, battery, and wrongful imprisonment.
In most circumstances, there is insurance coverage available that provides funds for your compensation. However, you should avoid communicating directly with the other person’s insurance company, because they will likely be attempting to convince you to settle for the least amount of money possible. Accordingly, if you have been injured and are considering whether you can recover compensation for the harm you have suffered, contact the Business Law Group for a free consultation to discuss your rights and the best strategy for proceeding.
