Medical Records and Other Tools to Help Your Personal Injury Case

April 09, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

A personal injury case comes about when someone has been injured or killed as a result of someone else’s negligence. In the medical community, this is referred to as “failure to provide reasonable care.”  When there has been failure to provide reasonable care, doctors find themselves in the middle of a lawsuit. In a personal injury case, you will have the burden to prove that your injury (or injury or death of someone) was an accident that could have been prevented.  Personal injury cases range from dog bites, to construction accidents, plane crashes, slips and falls, and many more, and each case is completely different from one person to the next. When you decide to meet with an attorney to discuss your case, here are some items you will want to know or have on hand so you are well-prepared when the time comes.

Why do they do this?  They do this because it’s estimated that hundreds of children have the potential to become pyromaniacs, a serious term for children (and adults) who like to play with matches.
