For over 28 years in addition to handling medical malpractice cases I’ve also been handling what are called personal injury cases. Personal injury cases come from a multitude of places, the most common is an automobile case which we’ve already discussed. In addition to that there are claims where people get injured for governmental entities. For example, I have a case where a lady stepped on a manhole cover and the manhole cover was loose and down she went and did serious injuries to her legs, arms, and neck. I have a recent case where a young child was hit in the head with a baseball bat at a baseball game. All of those come under the purview of personal injury cases. They have the same basic elements as a medical malpractice case or any case in personal injury, that is, negligence that causes damages. They have to be worked up in a similar manner with gathering of medical records, investigation, experts retained, and the case worked up, again burning the candle at both ends to either get the case resolved and/or take the case to trial.
