still fresh in your mind

What are some examples of personal injury?
Personal injury refers to that area of law where an individual or group
of people have been harmed and suffered loss as a result of the negligence,
wrongdoing, or liability of another. The injured party would be the plaintiff
in this scenario, and the defendant would be the individual, group, or
corporation accused of causing or allowing the harm.
Some types of personal injury cases that Domina Law Group handles include:
What kind of compensation am I entitled to?
Several factors determine what compensation you might be entitled to for
your injuries - including mental and physical pain and suffering, financial
hardship or loss, lost earning capacity, loss of consortium, impairment,
disfigurement, and more. The severity of your injury may allow you to
recover both compensatory and punitive damages.
These damages may include, but are not limited to:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Physical disability
- Emotional trauma
- Permanent scars
- Loss of enjoyment
- Mental anguish
- Loss of love and affection
- Mental disability
- Out of pocket expenses
- Property damage
What are punitive damages?
"Punitive" refers to punishment, so
punitive damages describe a financial penalty against the tortfeasor for their wrongdoing.
That money is then awarded to the victim-plaintiff in a civil claim.
How long do I have to file my injury claim?
This depends on the state in which the wrongful death or personal injury
occurred. Some states require wrongful death claims to be filed within
two years of the date that the death occurred; some states allow more
time, some allow less. Some states allow personal injury claims to be
filed up to four years from the date the injury occurred, but again, this
will vary from state to state.
