A personal injury case may arise when injury is suffered and damages incurred due to the negligence of another. The classic personal injury case involves a car accident where the driver of one vehicle is hit and injured by the driver of another vehicle due to negligent conduct, such as running a stop sign, running a red light or making an illegal left turn. Naturally, injuries resulting through the fault of another deserve to be compensated.
Victims of negligence must fight to be reimbursed for their bodily injury, pain, suffering, lost wages and medical expenses. While a small percentage of personal injury claims, such as automobile accidents, are actually tried in court it is critical to be thoroughly prepared for this possibility. As experts in trial litigation, Velasquez Dolan Soler make it their mission to prepare every case as if it will ultimately proceed to trial. It is our belief that this level of preparation is vital to success by either negotiated settlement or jury verdict.
