Injuries happen in many ways, and always when you least expect them. While no when can prevent all injuries, when you’re harmed in a preventable accident due to the negligence of someone else, the party at fault owes you compensation for the damages you suffer as a result.
Damages are typically paid out through the liable party’s insurance provider.

This means it often takes a skilled personal injury attorney to use their investigative and negotiating skills to help you recover full compensation for your damages.
