A significant injury is not something to simply ignore no matter where it happens or why. It is a good idea to know that help is available if you have personal injury law questions because of an injury that was a direct result of another party’s negligence. Since this can be difficult to determine sometimes, our lawyers at Lucé Evans Law can help you figure out if you deserve compensation for the injuries that you have sustained. It helps to understand personal injuries and understand the definition of negligence upfront.
Understanding Personal Injury
Injury of itself means damage to someone or something. As far as personal injury law is concerned, a personal injury is damage that affects a person’s physical, mental, or emotional health. Damage to something like property or defaming a person’s reputation is not generally considered “personal injury.” A broken leg or lasting emotional trauma could be considered a personal injury.
Negligence occurs when a person fails to do his or her duties in caring for something or doing something. Some examples could be failure to post certain warning signs, forgetting to deice a sidewalk, or not cleaning up a spill or fluids on a floor. When you receive an injury because someone neglected to do something they were supposed to do, a McKinney injury attorney could help you get compensation to which you are entitled.
Although not every injury you get will come with financial compensation, it is still beneficial to know when you can benefit from personal injury law expertise. You can get a consultation with our lawyers at Lucé Evans Law by contacting our team online or by calling (972) 632-1300.
