What do I need to know about Statutes of Limitation?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims varies from state to state, from case to case and from state to federal court. Failure to understand and meet these important procedural deadlines can be the cause for a case to be thrown out. It's important to consult with a personal injury attorney to help you understand and meet the required deadlines for these complicated statutes.

Catastrophic injuries change lives: Seek fair compensation

All types of personal injuries can affect your life, but the two that are the most serious are spinal cord injuries and traumatic head injuries.

Compensatory vs. Punitive Damages: What Does that Mean in Regard to My Personal Injury?

Compensation for personal injuries is often awarded based on two main types of damages: compensatory and punitive. Compensatory damages are granted as an attempt to "make whole" what was damaged or injured as the result of an injury. This can include more than just the treatment of an injury. Damages consider wages lost from time off work, long term recovery costs as well as permanent disabilities caused by the accident. The plaintiff is being compensated for these losses.
