Personal Injury

In court, a personal injury is defined as any harm done to someone by the act – or failure to act – of another party. This can include a physical injury, damage to one’s reputation, the loss of a legal right or even one’s emotional well-being. Further, that injury can be classified as either willful (intentional) or negligent. These personal injuries can result from drunk driving accidents, semi-truck accidents, traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries, to name a few.  The attorneys at Cummings & Petrone will worry about the details involved with the injury and deal with insurance companies and those who are responsible for that injury, while you focus on what is most important: your health.

In the process of working with your personal injury attorney, do not speak to anyone from the other party’s insurance company. Make sure to not provide any sort of recorded or written statement. And don’t sign anything for anyone, even your own insurance company, without first speaking to your attorney. Depending on the circumstances of your case, there are several types of insurance that can be relevant, such as:
  • Homeowners
  • Automobile
  • Life
  • Health
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Disability
  • Commercial property
  • Commercial liability
  • Business owners’
Any given personal injury case can involve one or more of these insurance types, which is why it is important to talk to an attorney who can act as your informed advocate to protect your rights.
