Personal Injury Cases Can Vary
Like many types of lawsuits, personal injury cases can vary widely in nature and eligibility from state to state, or from person to person. What is important to remember after an injury occurs is that you don’t have to know for certain that another party was responsible—merely suspecting another person’s liability for your injuries is sufficient cause to obtain legal counsel and begin an investigation. Contact Friedman & Friedman to speak with an experienced injury lawyer about your case. If an attorney from our firm finds that there is enough evidence of another person's liability in your accident, he or she may advise you to file suit against those deemed responsible for your injury.
Types Of Personal Injury Lawsuits
Numerous personal injury cases are brought to court every year. Just a few examples of the types of claims that can be filed are:
- Slip/fall due to negligent maintenance of home or business

- Assault claim

Should I Sue?
Most people do not relish the thought of suing others, so if another individual is responsible—however indirectly—for your injury, you may be feeling worried or guilty about the idea of bringing him or her to court. Understand that you have every right to want to obtain compensation for your injury, even if it was pure and unintentional negligence that caused it. Any damages recovered are intended to assist you in putting your life back together, helping you and your family move forward without the burden of massive medical bills or debt from lost wages.
