Personal Injury Law FAQ

Personal Injury – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

A personal injury can result from many types of accidents or circumstances.  For instance a personal injury can arise out of negligence, accidents such as auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, train accidents, bus accidents, boat accidents, plane crashes, the list goes on and on.  Moreover, injuries or death can occur as a result of medical malpractice. If you are a victim of personal injury then you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual responsible.   The law limits the amount of time you can do this so it is wise to take action immediately.  The law of Personal injury provides monetary compensation to help the victims of personal injury to recover from their losses.  Their losses include pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and loss of services with their family.

It is critical to understand that if you wish to file a personal injury lawsuit then you must consider with the right personal injury lawyer the following important issues involved in filing a personal injury lawsuit.

First, you and your personal injury lawyer must speak about the time limit within which you must file your personal injury case. This time limit is known as your Statute of Limitations. Every single U.S state has its own Statute of Limitations.

With respect to your personal injury lawsuit, if your state’s Statute of Limitations has expired then you cannot file your personal injury lawsuit.   Make sure that you and your personal injury lawyer are clear on when to file your lawsuit so that Statute of Limitations does not stand in your way.

Secondly,  if you are filing a personal injury lawsuit it is best to hire a personal injury lawyer. Most of the personal injury lawyers work on contingency basis where you are not required to pay anything before hiring a lawyer. Your personal injury lawyer will only receive a percentage of the amount from the final settlement or verdict amount the personal injury case is won.

Most of the defendant’s hire aggressive defense lawyers who work for the best interest of their clients. Therefore, it is best to consult a personal injury lawyer. Your injury lawyer will help you steer clear of any complications arising out of your personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury lawyer will help you receive justice and compensation you deserve.

Defective Guardrails. Defective Guardrail Lawsuit.

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

One may think that a guardrail cannot be defective.  However, that thought is false.  A guardrail can be defective in the following ways:

1) Design defect of the guardrail; 2) manufacturers defect of the guardrail; 3) incorrect installation of the guardrail; 4) faulty guardrail maintenance; and 5) negligent or shoddy guardrail repairs.

The purpose of a guardrail is obvious.  But, what most people do not know is that a guardrail must react to a collision in a specific way.  If someone is involved in an accident on the road involving a guardrail and that accident was catastrophic in nature, the accident many times could have or should have been minor if it wasn’t for the guardrail.

The key to successfully litigating a defective guardrail case is to follow up with an attorney immediately so that the proper photographs and investigation of the guardrail can be conducted by your lawyers experts.

If you or a loved one were involved in an accident and a guardrail was hit please call the Guardrail Lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT for a free consultation.  No fee unless we win your case.  We have convenient locations all over New York.  Hospital and home visits are available.
