Woodstock Personal Injury Lawyers
Helping Navigate Your Personal Injury Case
Various incidents can give rise to a personal injury claim, such as car, bus, or truck crashes, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, or slips and falls. Regardless of the situation, the person or entity that caused the accident can be held responsible for damages the victim sustained. The injured party may pursue compensation by filing an insurance claim or initiating a lawsuit. Both courses of action can be complicated and overwhelming and may be even more difficult because the individual is recovering from serious injuries. If you have been harmed in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, turn to an attorney for help navigating your case.

What Kind of Damages Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Case?
The term “damages” refers to the expenses and losses you suffered due to your accident. Damages include economic, those that are calculable, and non-economic, those that are more subjective.
Below are examples of economic damages:
- Medical expenses,
- Rehabilitative care,
- Lost wages, and
- Lost earning potential.
Non-economic damages can include:
- Pain and suffering,
- Mental anguish, and
- Loss of enjoyment of life.
To recover damages, you must prove that the other party was responsible for your accident. Generally, personal injury claims are based on the theory of negligence.
Under this doctrine, a person may be deemed negligent if:
- They owed someone a duty of care.
- They breached their duty of care.
- The breach caused an accident.
- The injured party suffered injuries because of the breach.
At Pritchard Injury Firm, we fully investigate every case we handle to determine the cause of the accident and establish fault.
