Personal Injury

At Mathis, Marifian & Richter, Ltd., we believe you should never have to pay the price for someone else’s negligence when it comes to a personal injury. The best way to protect yourself in the event of a personal injury is to know what legal remedies are available for you. Knowing the basics of a personal injury case can help you in your decision of filing a lawsuit.

What qualifies as a personal injury?
Personal injury refers to anything that caused a person bodily or emotional harm as a result of another person or party’s negligence. If you are injured, the first and most important step is to seek medical treatment eventually. You must seek medial treatment before you can file a personal injury claim.

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Accidents on the Job
  • Tripping and Falling Accidents
  • Personal Assault
  • Accidents in a Home
  • Accidents Caused by Defective Products
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Industrial Diseases

Receiving compensation for your personal injury can pay medical bills, replace lost wages or simply help soothe the emotional and physical pain that you have suffered. Another benefit to filing a claim for personal injury is that it can help prevent future accidents from occurring. In a way, filing a lawsuit can help you to receive the compensation you deserve while protecting others from the same fate.

Dealing with a personal injury can be stressful and frustrating, but you are not alone. We will work alongside you and help guide you during this difficult time, and will do everything in our power to get you the compensation you deserve.
