Personal injury law
Accidents lurk around every corner, be it a traffic accident, an accident at work or occupational illness, unsafe products, an accident during a sporting event, accidents caused by animals or by a medical error; all the above can lead to personal injury.
Liability for personal injury
A victim of any accident will have to deal with a great many aspects in the immediate aftermath. Naturally, your health and recovery are your first priorities, however the accident may also lead to additional costs or a drop in income.
If you are injured for something for which someone else is liable, as a victim, you will be entitled to compensation for the damage by the liable party or its insurer. Our lawyers advise victims in determining the exact liability.
As soon as liability is established, the scope of the damage caused by the accident is also determined. That damage, in any case, will include all costs that you would not have had had the accident not taken place, such as costs of medical treatments, household help, adjustments made to the home, but also lawyers’ fees (extra-judicial costs).
Aspects that may also be touched on include loss of income, future earning capacity and pension damages. In certain circumstances, immaterial damage may also be recoverable, this may include damages for pain and suffering or damage by shock.
