By partnering with a skilled personal injury lawyer, you significantly improve your chances of securing a favorable outcome for your case.
Working with a personal injury attorney is crucial because no matter how obvious it is that you were not responsible for your injury, the individual or company responsible will attempt to shift blame for the accident onto you.

Beyond securing financial relief for your own injuries, taking your personal injury case to court will also protect others from the individual or company that caused your injury.

What Constitutes a Personal Injury?
Personal injuries can take many forms. They can occur due to negligence, malice, or substance abuse. A personal injury may occur due to a horrible accident. This, however, doesn’t mean that the party responsible should be forgiven without consequence.
Here are some very common examples of personal injuries that our lawyers at Mulvihill Law Firm have had to deal with over the years.
- Assault: any time a person is assaulted by another person and sustains an injury, the victim may make a personal injury claim.
- Slip and fall accidents: these often occur at workplaces or public spaces where there is no indicator that a surface is slippery. Without adequate signage, an individual is unable to know that a surface is dangerous to walk on. Victims who have sustained an injury due to a slip and fall accident may file a personal injury claim.
- Auto accidents: if a driver was drunk or driving under the influence of drugs or prescription medication and is responsible for hitting someone or causing a collision, the victim may file a personal injury claim.
- Pedestrian or cyclist accidents: if you’re out walking or cycling and you are struck by a motorized vehicle or another cyclist and you are injured, you have grounds for a personal injury claim.
- Product or equipment malfunction: if a product or piece of equipment malfunctions and results in an injury, the victim has the potential to sue the producer of the product or machinery.
- Workplace injuries: employees who are in professions where they often work in unsafe conditions may file a personal injury claim if they are injured on the job.
- Injury at an establishment where hazardous conditions were not made known: if you are a guest at a restaurant or a customer at a store and the establishment hasn’t posted sufficient signage informing guests of a potentially slippery surface, the establishment can be held responsible for causing the personal injury.
When to Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have been involved in an accident and would like to pursue justice and compensation for your injuries, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Fighting this legal battle without expert counsel will result in a negative outcome for your case.
In order to achieve the best possible outcome and adequate compensation for your injuries, it’s essential to work with a reliable personal injury lawyer.
A good personal injury lawyer will work with you and your physician to analyze data and calculate how much you should be compensated for your injury. This is important because the legal team defending the individual or company responsible for your injury may suggest that you had preexisting conditions or that the accident was in some way your fault in an attempt to lessen the financial responsibility of their client. Having a reliable personal injury lawyer by your side will ensure that you aren’t low-balled out of your just compensation.
