Types of Compensation in Personal Injury Cases and Factors that Affect Settlement

You can seek compensation in a personal injury case if you have suffered property damage, injury or any other kind of loss due to the actions of the plaintiff. The legal term for compensation in personal injury cases is "damages". The damages awarded in case of personal injury lawsuit claims are divided into two categories: punitive and compensatory.

Northern Kentucky Personal Injury Suits

In Kentucky, a personal injury case concerns an injured person who alleges another person or entity did not exercise reasonable care and it resulted in injury or damages. Under the law of principles and damages, a claim could be filed for negligence, breach of warranty or intentionally reckless conduct. All types of injuries are covered under Kentucky Personal Injury Law, such as those suffered by medical malpractice, product liability, automobile accidents and premise liability.

Filing Personal Injury Claims in Cincinnati

Your person, property, rights or reputation are all things that can be wronged or damaged and thus become liable for a Personal Injury claim. But to be a viable claim they must have occurred because of a negligent or unreasonably safe act by another. Examples include your employer in a workplace accident, your landlord in a slip and fall, your doctor in a medical procedure that left you worse off than before, a manufacturer that produced a faulty product that injures you or a drunk, reckless or negligent driver that causes an automobile accident. There are many more incidents that would apply, of course, but one thing they all have in common is that different laws apply to each one and different things must be done in each case to make it apply to a Personal Injury claim. As laymen, we are not equipped to make a sensible and logical decision as to whether we have a valid claim in a Cincinnati court of law. This is best discussed with a licensed, credible attorney who is well versed in the particular type of injury claim we are pursuing.
