A personal injury is defined as the injury of a person who has been physically or psychologically injured as a result of negligence, carelessness or a lack of duty of care by another person, entity or product.
Personal injury law allows injury victims to recover compensation for losses, and is a process that determines who and / or what was responsible for the damage that was caused to the plaintiff.
If you or a loved on has suffered an injury due to another’s neglect, you may be eligible to obtain compensation for those injuries – including any associated medical costs and other related expenses. Our personal injury lawyers are ready to assist with your injury litigation today and we only get paid when we win your case.

What Defines A Personal Injury?
Serious personal injuries can be devastating for all parties involved – especially for family members and other dependents.
In most Personal Injury cases, injuries are categorized into three separate areas to help determine what type of injury was sustained, the cause of the injury, and who needs to be held accountable to pay for any associated compensation or reimbursements.
A loss can be any of the following:
Physical injury – determines that someone was physically hurt as a result of an incident.
Damage to property – damages were sustained by material goods. An example of this would be a dented fender in a car accident, or damages sustained to a store front as a result of a runaway car.
Emotional / Psychological trauma – can be attributed to victims that have been severely incapacitated by an event. Some of these may include – witnessing a trauma happen to another person, mental scarring due to serious body or facial disfigurement or even someone having suffered great embarrassment in a public setting can be considered a victim of emotional trauma.
Admittedly, there can be many instances of personal injury, and with that in mind, at The Eichholz Law Firm our team of highly skilled attorneys often employ the services of consultants from other professions to help prove their case (for example – using accredited, highly-regarded doctors to support the views of the lawsuit).

If you were harmed due to the negligence of another individual or party, it’s important to understand that you are entitled to pursue damages.
By definition, “damages” refer to a sum of money that is paid as compensation after a loss. Victims may be entitled for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering, among other losses for their personal injury claims.
Knowing The Tactics That Insurance Companies Use
A considerable part of the litigation process often involves dealing with an insurance company. Many defendants will have insurance of one type or another (auto, property, etc.), that will be called upon to pay for any compensation that is deemed necessary by the court.
In many cases, a defendant’s insurance company will send out investigators to speak with victims in an attempt to obtain as much information possible about a case, so that they can help to defend their policyholder.
It’s VERY important to be aware that these adjusters are highly-trained individuals that are skilled at extracting confidential details about a case – which can be used against the plaintiff should the case go to court.
At the Eichholz Law Firm, our team of lawyers is well aware of the tricks and tactics that the insurance companies use, and will often simply ensure that any calls or inquiries are handled by our firm. By doing this, our personal injury lawyers can make sure that your best interests are protected at all times, so that you can focus your energies of getting healthy.
