A serious injury can stay with you for the rest of your life. Whether you slipped in the grocery store, went through a traumatic car accident, or needed an extra and unnecessary surgery because of medical malpractice, injuries can affect your relationships, financial security, and ability to work. Some injuries are the result of an accident or something out of anyone’s control, such as the weather. Many more injuries are directly related to the negligence or careless actions of another person. If someone else’s recklessness caused your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
At Russo, Russo & Slania, P.C., we know how devastating an injury can be, and we want to help you hold responsible parties accountable for their actions. To do so, we must prove the person who caused your injuries was negligent. In the court of law, negligence means a person acted carelessly in a way that caused the accident and was not acting how a reasonable person would act in the same situation. Negligence can take many forms, from distracted driving to marketing a defective product. All cases of negligence fall under personal injury if someone was injured because of the negligent actions. Our Tucson personal injury attorneys have the experience to help you fight for compensation when negligent actions cause you serious harm.
There are countless ways that one person can injure another. If your injury was preventable, and someone else failed to act with necessary caution, you should pursue compensation. A qualified personal injury lawyer could be able to bring justice to your case and obtain the money you need to move past your accident. At Russo, Russo & Slania, P.C., these are the personal injury areas we see the most frequently:
Keep in mind that many people sustain injuries from events that are not listed here, so this list is by no means complete. The most important part of your case in legal terms is that we are able to prove that another party was acting negligently, resulting in your injury.
