What types of accidents qualify for a personal injury case?

Any time you sustain an injury caused by another person or a company, you might be eligible to seek compensation for your losses. Hoffoss Devall can assist with any type of personal injury case no matter how challenging it may be or how severe your injuries. A few examples of situations that may justify a claim include:

Do you have a valid injury case worth pursuing?

Almost every personal injury case hinges on negligence, i.e., the careless actions of the party you are filing against (the defendant) must have caused your injuries. A driver operating his car while drunk, a store owner who failed to put up wet floor signage, and a cargo loader that failed to secure materials are all examples of negligence.

Some personal injury cases are not based on negligence, though. Willful misconduct or malice, for instance, can also justify a personal injury case. Victims of assault can file a suit against the assailant for financial recovery. In defective product cases, injured consumers might be able to hold a manufacturer liable even if the company did not know the product was dangerous or defective.

Do you need an attorney for your personal injury case?

Many victims do not have the legal background to maximize their cases so they get all of the compensation they deserve. There are probably dozens of losses you can recover that you are not even aware of.

Our team at Hoffoss Devall will advocate for your best interests. We offer comprehensive services at no upfront cost to you. This means we can assist with all aspects of your case, from investigation and filing paperwork, to negotiation with insurance companies and representing you in court. We can even hire industry experts to help prove your case.

Our track record speaks for itself. We have won million-dollar and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients’ personal injury and wrongful death cases. Hiring an attorney not only affords you the best opportunity to secure the funds you and your family need, but it allows you the freedom to rest easier while we take care of all the legal hassles.

What kinds of damages can I recover?

If you win your case, you can recover damages for your physical, financial, and emotional losses. We will comb through your case and make sure that we demand payment from the liable party for all of your current and future losses.

Compensable damages include:

  • Medical and rehabilitation bills
  • Lost wages and loss of benefits
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • The cost of household services
  • Emotional losses, lost quality of life, and pain and suffering
