Personal Injury

Overview

Personal injury lawsuits come about when individuals suffer injuries or are caused damage by either careless or intentional actions of another entity, or are harmed by dangerous or defective products. Once a court of law determines that the offending party is liable, or legally responsible, for the injury or damages they may be forced to monetarily compensate the victims for their damages.

Damages in a Personal Injury Case

There are two categories of damages that can be awarded in a personal injury case: compensatory damages, and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are awards that are intended to put the injured party back in the same position that they would have been in had they not been injured, such as medical bills and lost wages. Punitive damages are damages that are sometimes awarded by a court with the intent of punishing a bad-actor, and to prevent them from hurting others in the future.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way.
