A serious injury can change your life forever, and it can happen in multiple ways — including slipping on a wet floor, falling at a construction site, or being involved in a car accident
. In some cases, an injury occurs because of the negligence of an individual or a business.
If you’re injured, you can’t undo the pain and lasting damage. But you can take steps to protect your rights and ensure that you receive compensation for your medical bills, lost time from work, pain and suffering, and other harm that accidents often leave in their wake.

An experienced personal injury attorney
can assist you in winning damages against the persons responsible for your injury. If you’ve been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to two types of damages.
Compensatory damages are intended to cover the losses from your injury, including the cost of medical bills, lost wages, loss of your ability to perform necessary household chores, and other expenses. Punitive damages sometimes are awarded in cases in which a defendant acted with recklessness or malice.
