Personal injury is harm caused to a person's body, emotions, or mind and often occurs due to another party's negligence. Personal injuries also include situations where the victim passes away, also referred to as wrongful death. Wrongful death claims are usually brought by the victim's relatives. Personal injury laws are designed to compensate an accident victim for medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

If you've sustained injuries because of another person's negligence, you can file a personal injury claim to receive compensation from the person or entity responsible for your injuries. This compensation typically comes from the responsible party’s insurance companies. In some cases, however, you can pursue compensation from the party’s personal assets as well.
Personal injury damages are classified into two groups – economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic compensation covers:
Non-economic damages are harder to prove. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine the value of non-economic losses such as:
There is another form of damages called “punitive damages”. This form of compensation is not usually related to costs associated with your injury but are instead awarded to punish the at-fault party for gross negligence or egregious conduct which results in your injuries.
At Ben Bowden, P.C., we will work with you to determine the true value of your case, then build the strongest case possible to maximize the compensation you are owed. Insurance companies will work from day one to limit the amount of money you receive - let us help you level the playing field so that you get the compensation you and your family needs during this time.
After an accident, insurance companies may reach out offering a quick settlement to pay you for your injuries. These companies do not have your best interests in mind. In fact, their job is to limit the compensation you are owed. Please do not sign anything until you have spoken with an attorney - you may be singing away important rights.
If you or a family member have been involved in an accident that has affected your life and you believe that someone else is responsible for your injury, you may be eligible for compensation beyond what the insurance companies are offering. To know for sure what your case is worth, you should consult with an experienced personal attorney first.
