FIGHTING FOR A FAIR RECOVERY ON YOUR BEHALF

Melbourne Personal Injury Attorneys

Fighting for a Fair Recovery on Behalf of Injured Clients in Brevard County & Beyond

If you are injured due to someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional actions, you have the right to take legal action. A personal injury lawsuit seeks compensation on behalf of injured individuals who have suffered damages as a result of someone else’s negligence. While every case is different, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and reduced earning capacity caused by or related to the accident and/or your injuries. You may also be able to recover for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, and more.

At The Law Offices of Germain & McCarthy, we represent individuals who have been affected by the negligence of another person, company, or entity. With more than 20 years of combined legal experience, we are prepared to provide you with the compassionate and aggressive representation you deserve.

How Personal Injury Claims Work

Most personal injury claims are brought on the basis of negligence. In other words, in order to have a claim, you must show that your injuries were caused by the negligent actions of someone else. This can include another person, company, government entity, or business.

Though it is somewhat rarer, you may also bring a personal injury claim on the basis of “strict liability” or “intentional wrongdoing.” Strict liability cases typically apply to product designers, manufacturers, and distributors, as these entities have a duty to produce and sell products that are reasonably safe for consumers. Failure to do so can result in legal action under the basis of strict liability.

A personal injury claim that is brought under the basis of intentional wrongdoing alleges that the liable party acted purposefully and that these actions resulted in harm, bodily injury, and/or property damage. Cases involving assault or sexual assault typically fall under the basis of intentional wrongdoing.

Once you and your attorney have determined that you do, indeed, have a claim, you become the “plaintiff” and the at-fault party becomes the “defendant.” Most personal injury cases are resolved through settlement, in which you agree to drop your charges in return for monetary compensation. However, if settlement negotiations are not successful, you may need to resolve your case in trial.
