WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY?

A personal injury is any injury you suffer as a result of someone else's negligence.  The sad truth is, when you are injured in an accident, insurance companies are not on your side. While they may offer a quick settlement, this is to protect their bottom line, not your best interests. The only way to get the compensation you are truly due is through legal action brought by an experienced attorney.

Unfortunately, accidents are a common fact of everyday life. People are injured all the time because of circumstances over which they have no control. These accidents happen sometimes even if no one directly caused them, like when a storm causes damage to homes or cars. Other times, however, a person may have caused an accident to happen by either acting or failing to take action, For instance when an owner does not repair dangerous or damaged stairs or an automobile accident caused by texting and driving. When this happens, another person’s behavior directly caused an accident, which may have resulted in an injury or loss of income to you or your loved ones. You should not have to compensate someone for the results of someone else’s actions. When accidents like this occur, you need a Ringgold lawyer with experience to defend your rights.

    What type of lawyer do you need? The Bandy Firm can also seek damages in the event of a wrongful death. It is your right to seek compensation when you wrongfully loose a loved one. How is a defendant held liable with personal injury claims? It depends, was it done on purpose, the result of negligence or other liability? Every case has different dynamics but in general, when a person or company acted unreasonably therefore hurting someone. With negligence, it’s assumed the person or company did not intentionally mean to hurt anyone, but it happened anyway due to negligence. Intentional damages refer to injuries that were caused on purpose. Liability also occurs with product claims like recalls and faulty products. 

    When you’re facing financial problems you may consider bankruptcy to resolve your situation. Overall the number of bankruptcies have decreased over time, but hundreds of thousand of claims are filed each year. Generally, bankruptcies are defined by ‘chapters’ - like Chapter 7 and chapter 11. By filing bankruptcy you can stop aggressive collection efforts. If you have lost your income or facing a large money crisis, bankruptcy may be useful to help you recover. Just call the Ringgold attorneys that get it done, and we can talk about your specific case.
