Personal Injury

Personal injury law refers to the legal remedies and defenses involved in civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. In contrast to criminal law, a personal injury case does not involve the government prosecuting the wrongdoer. Rather, these cases involve a private plaintiff seeking compensation for the harm caused by the defendant's actions. 

What Damages Can Be Recovered after an Accident?

Every situation is different and the damages that you may be able to recover after your accident will vary. However, if your injuries were caused by another person, company, or entity’s negligence, you may be entitled to certain damages. 

Our firm can help you fight for the just compensation you are owed for:

  • Physical pain and/or emotional distress resulting from the accident

  • Cost of ongoing medical treatment, such as physical therapy

  • Medical bills, including hospital and ambulance fees

  • Lost income or wages from time taken off work to receive treatment

  • Lost earning ability, present or future, due to injuries

  • Loss of enjoyment or decreased quality of life after an accident

  • Loss of a loved one, burial/funeral expenses, and consortium

While financial compensation cannot negate the ordeal you have been through, it can help you get the crucial treatment you need for your recovery. At Lynn & O’Brien, LLP, our experienced personal injury attorneys are committed to fighting for you and your family.

Recovering Compensation After an Auto Accident

Auto accidents can be caused by a wide range of things: from faulty roads to negligent drivers that drive while intoxicated, tired/fatigued, or distracted. At Lynn & O'Brien, LLP, we believe that they should be held responsible, both legally and financially. 

We are here to help you recover damages, which can include financial help for:

If the person who caused your accident did not have insurance or had insufficient insurance, we can still help you establish liability and collect underinsured or uninsured coverage from your insurance policy or a family member's policy.
