A Personal Injury Can Affect All Aspects of Your Life
At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our attorneys seek compensation for people hurt because of another’s negligence. Personal injury is the term used to describe physical and mental injuries that occur because of someone else’s negligence, intentional actions, or strict liability. Most personal injury cases involve negligence.
Building a Powerful Personal Injury Case
Our personal injury attorneys work closely with every client, meticulously investigating the cause of the personal injury accident and assessing all of our clients’ injuries, costs and losses.
In addition to our own experience and legal knowledge, Russell & Hill, PLLC, partner with personal injury experts as appropriate to prove every case. We often partner with accident scene reconstructionists to examine skid marks, property damage and other evidence to help us understand and demonstrate exactly what caused the accident and who was at fault. We incorporate medical testimony from clients’ doctors to demonstrate the extent of their injuries. Where appropriate, we also work closely with vocational experts to understand how the accident has limited our client’s ability to work, information that will also be relevant in SSDI proceedings.
Personal Injury Monetary Damages
Depending upon the intent or negligence of the responsible party, our client may be entitled to recover personal injury monetary damages for all their losses and expenses they have incurred as a direct result of the negligent or intentional harm that caused the personal injury through a settlement or a judgment.
Personal injury monetary damages can include the following:
- Lost wages, including benefits
