Personal Injury and Malpractice

Personal Injury May Entitle You to Compensation

email CONTACT THIS PRACTICE

Personal injury refers to a situation where someone has been injured or killed by the wrongful act of another. In the United States, thousands of personal injury lawsuits are filed annually.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 31 million people sustain injuries that require a doctor’s care, nearly two million people require some hospitalization, and approximately 160,000 people die annually from their injuries. The leading causes of personal injury include:

For you to seek damages, your injuries do not need to be physical. If you have been subjected to extreme emotional distress or verbal abuse, you may be entitled to compensation. In addition, if a family member’s death resulted from negligence, surviving family members can file personal injury lawsuits for emotional pain and suffering.

If you suffered from depression following the wrongful death of a loved one or experienced nightmares and insomnia following a car accident, you may have needed to seek help from a counselor or psychiatrist. These types of injuries are examples of emotional suffering and you would be entitled to compensation.

Less Common Forms of Personal Injury

  • False arrest, detention or imprisonment
  • Wrongful invasion of your private residence
  • Wrongful eviction from a private residence
  • Oral or written publication of material that slanders or libels you or harms your business or services
  • Oral or written publication of material that violates your right to privacy

How Weitz & Luxenberg Helped Me

  • W.P.’s Story

    I write to thank you and all of your lawyers and staff for achieving a substantial settlement recently. There were complicated issues of liability… I am convinced there are very few law firms that could have achieved your result and that would have fought so very hard for Joe. Your lawyers are professional and compassionate.
