FAQs Personal Injury

A personal injury (also called bodily injury) is any physical or mental injury to a person as a result of someone’s negligence or harmful act.

Before accepting a settlement, you should always consult an experienced injury lawyer who understands injury law and knows an accident victim’s rights. Insurance adjustors work for the insurance company- not for you- and their job is to settle your case for the lowest amount possible! Consult with an injury attorney at Thomas & Pearl before accepting any offer made to you by the insurance company.
