Personal Injury

Personal injury claims arise when people are injured by careless or intentional acts of others, frequently arising from motor vehicle accidents and premises injuries. Injuries also arise through the intentional conduct of the other party. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring another, they are liable for the injury and may be made to pay the injured person compensatory damages.

Compensatory damages are designed to return the injured person back to the position he or she was in before the injuries, if that is possible. In some cases, juries award punitive damages, although that does not occur often and the standard of proof is more stringent than to prove liability. Punitive damages are intended solely to punish the responsible individual or company and to discourage them from engaging in the same activities in the future. Wilton Law & Mediation handles a variety of personal injury claims for clients, including those arising out of:
