At its simplest, injury law is about compelling responsible parties to compensate those they injure through negligent or reckless behavior. However, injury law is rarely simple. In addition to injuries, victims may experience lost wages, and emotional pain and suffering. At Bell & Bell, P.A., you can speak with a personal injury lawyer with experience in personal injury cases of every type.
Car Accidents and Insurance
Car accidents are the most common personal injury cases the personal injury lawyer sees. In states with no-fault insurance, personal injury cases can become very complex. Who pays for medical treatment depends on how much insurance the negligent party had, whether the victim has medical insurance, and many other factors. It’s always a good idea to contact an accident lawyer after a car accident lands a victim in the hospital.
Many times, people slip and fall in a store or amusement park and are able to brush it off as nothing more than temporarily embarrassing. But a simple slip or trip can be very serious in some cases. For example, an elderly person could experience injuries significant enough to require hospitalization after a slip that a younger person might forget about in a day or so. If you or a loved one is hospitalized after a premises accident, calling an accident lawyer is prudent.
Cruise Ship Accidents
Cruise ship accidents may seem like any other personal injury accident, but in fact they are always more complex. Depending on where the ship was located, maritime or international laws may apply. Furthermore, the cruise industry spends millions lobbying Congress for laws that make it difficult for ordinary people to successfully sue cruise lines. An accident attorney with specific cruise injury experience is necessary to successfully bring a claim against a cruise line.
Motorcycle accidents have all the factors of most car accidents, plus the possibility of much more serious injury. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident, there is no reason not to contact an injury attorney. At Bell & Bell, P.A., our lawyers have extensive experience helping people like you who have been injured in different types of accidents.
