Personal Injury

Lemmon Law Firm has handled a wide variety of personal injury claims on behalf of its clients throughout its existence. Wikipedia states that “A personal injury occurs when a person has suffered some form of injury , either physical or psychological, as the result of an accident or medical malpractice.”

The most common type of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, defective product accidents and holiday accidents. Indeed, there are a multitude of types of accident and the term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which lead to numerous medical and dental negligence claims every year) and conditions which are often classified as industrial disease cases. Industrial disease type cases include asbestosis and mesothelioma, chest diseases (e.g. emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic obstructive airways disease), vibration white finger, occupational deafness, occupational stress, contact dermatitis, and repetitive strain injury cases.

Where the accident was the fault of someone else, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from the person whose negligent conduct caused the injury. At least in the United States “this system is complex and controversial with critics calling for various forms of tort reform. Attorneys often represent clients on a ‘contingency basis’, in which the attorney does not charge for services until the case is resolved.”

Automobile

Lemmon Law Firm continues to represent people who receive personal injuries in car wrecks, truck wrecks, and bicycle wrecks. These include the claims of drivers, car owners, passengers, children, and survivors if someone receives a fatal injury. Planning an automobile case often involves the reconstruction of the wreck or accident scene to determine fault. It also involves the use of medical experts to explain the fact of the injury and the mechanics of the body to demonstrate the injury for the particular wreck.
