What is a typical personal injury case?

The typical personal injury case is probably the slip and fall. So let’s say you’re walking into your building going to work, it’s 9 o’clock in the morning and you see some people doing construction right by the elevators and you go to press the button and you fall over a hammer or some other tool that’s being left on the ground. The chances are either the construction company or the maintenance crew or the building in some respect was negligent and, you know, if you suffered a serious injury then you’re entitled to damages. I had a client ask me the other day whether or not she was really entitled to damages because she felt a little bad taking money for being injured. And she had previously just talked to me about all the pain she had suffered. And I said well when you think that way, think about all of the consecutive nights in which you had to get up at 3 o’clock in the morning because of the searing pain in your leg and then think whether money doesn’t make that feel a little bit better. So if you’re injured seriously, please come and see me and let me see what I can do for you.
