What Is a Personal Injury?
In civil law, a personal injury is any type of injury that is caused by another party. It can stem from a motor vehicle accident, a fall in a private home, a mishap during a sporting event, and many other incidents. If any person or business entity acts in a negligent or careless manner that leads to the bodily harm for your or a loved one, you may have a personal injury case.
The damages in personal injury litigation are typically the losses you experience because of an accident or incident of wrongdoing, and can include:
- Medical care costs
- Loss of income
- Property Loss
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Quality of life losses, such as loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium with a spouse

We Handle Many Fall Injury Cases
Personal Injury Cases
In any personal injury case, it is vital to understand that insurance companies are only interested in protecting their bottom line. An insurance adjuster will generally offer you a quick, lowball settlement. They may try to downplay your losses and deflect blame from their insured customers. With Cochran Douglas on your team, you can expect a different attitude and a much better resolution of your case. Backed with a proven track record and years of experience, we will fight aggressively for you.
People who are represented by a personal injury attorney on average end up recovering almost three and one-half times more than people who try to settle with the insurance company on their own. This was found to be true by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). The IRC concluded that for the same injury a person represented by an attorney recovered almost three and one-half more than a person without an attorney. This three and one-half more recovery is even after the attorney was paid! It has been found in Insurance Adjuster’s employee manuals to settle claims for as little as possible to improve the Insurance company’s bottom line. Don’t let the insurance adjuster settle your claim early for pennies on the dollar.
Our firm handles all types of personal injury cases, including medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. We also have extensive experience with traffic-related accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
In vehicle collision cases, we can help clients pursue a diminished value claim, and can provide valuable counsel if your accident involves an uninsured motorist or a driver under the influence. If your insurance company is violating contract laws and treating you unfairly, you may have a bad faith insurance claim to pursue, and we can fight for your rights. Other types of personal injury cases we handle are dog bites, serious slip and falls, and sports injuries.
We provide representation without a requirement for up-front fees. Our contingency fee policy means you pay no attorney fees until you receive your compensation or jury verdict.
