Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
Personal injury broadly describes an area of law concerning the compensation for persons who have wrongly suffered injury or death. Our commitment to the public good for all citizens has made personal injury an important part of our practice since Goss & Williams opened its doors in 1989.
“Wrongful death” is a death caused by the wrongful conduct of another person or entity. That conduct can be anything from a negligent act to an intentional reckless act. By law, wrongful death beneficiaries of the deceased are entitled to receive compensation for a wrongful death. These damages may include medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of consortium.
Recovery for Your Losses and Harm
In certain cases, you may recover lost wages along with medical expenses incurred as a result of your injuries. In addition, you may be entitled to money damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, physical impairment, and physical disfigurement. In some cases, you may also be entitled to additional damages to punish or prevent the same harm from happening to others. It is important to have a skilled law firm as your advocate so you can have an opportunity to secure the best result possible.
If you have been injured, your best opportunity for justice and an adequate recovery is to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
