Personal Injury Lawyer Raleigh

What is personal injury?

Personal Injury relates to the losses, wrongs or damages that are caused by the negligent conduct, act or omission of a responsible party to another person. A personal injury can occur at work, in a car wreck, because of a defective product, an operating error, faulty repair, a medical mistake, a construction accident, a bicycle accident, a pedestrian accident, an ambulance wreck, a boating accident or many other scenarios. Personal Injury Laws protect and/or compensate for monetary, physical or psychological damages. However, the damages that are caused must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions or intentional actions of another. Personal Injury Law covers many different areas and situations which include workers compensation law, malpractice, wrongful death, birth injury, bodily injuries, catastrophic injuries and loss of enjoyment of life.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

How do you know if you have a personal injury case?

Many personal injury cases are based on the legal concept of negligence. First, you will need to figure out if you or your loved one suffered a personal injury to either you or your loved one’s body. If so, medical attention will be required and a doctor will need to determine if the personal health issues are serious injuries and treat those injuries with conservative medical treatment.  Next we consider if the injuries you suffered were due to someone else’s negligence. At the Law Office of D. Hardison Wood, our personal injury attorneys will meet with you in order to properly evaluate and discuss the specifics of the personal injury loss. Our personal injury attorneys will decide what is needed to win and whether we need to retain expert witnesses, private investigators or seek second opinions. At each point in the process, our team of personal injury staff members will explain what is needed, and will ensure you understand where we are in the process.
