What is a Personal Injury?

    "Personal Injury" is a damage or harm suffered by a natural person or a legal entity . The harm can be physical in
    nature such as a broken leg or spinal cord injury or a financial harm such as in a business dispute. The legal
    umbrella of personal injury also includes defamation, libel and slander.

    The great majority of Orlando personal injury cases involve physical injuries from some type of truck, slip and fall  
    or car accident. Not all personal injures give rise to a lawsuit, which may involve a financial recovery. To find out if
    your personal injury gives you a recoverable legal claim please contact the experienced Orlando personal injury
    lawyers at the Bodiford Law Group. Our attorneys will investigate the legal claim when you or a loved one suffers
    harm from an accident or injury and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm.

    What are the Steps involved in a Personal Injury Claim?

    How Are Personal Injury Cases Resolved?

    Most of us grew up with the idea of that all personal injury claimants have their "day in court." While this is true
    some of the time, most cases will never wind up in a courtroom. Remember, the goal of the Orlando personal injury
    attorneys at the Bodiford Law Group is to collect the maximum client recovery in your case and this does not always
    involve the courtroom or a trial. While some personal injury cases become formalized in civil court proceedings it is
    much more common that your dispute will be successfully resolved through informal settlement before a lawsuit is

    Formal "Lawsuit" - A formal personal injury case starts when the "plaintiff" (the injured party) files a civil
    "complaint" against another person, business, corporation, or government agency alleging that they acted
    carelessly or irresponsibly in connection with an accident or injury that caused harm. This action is known as "filing
    a lawsuit".

    Informal Settlement - In reality, most disputes over fault for an accident or injury are resolved through informal
    early settlement, usually among those personally involved in the dispute, their insurers, and attorneys representing
    both sides. A settlement commonly takes the form of negotiation, followed by a written agreement in which both
    sides forgo any further action (like filing a lawsuit), choosing instead to resolve the matter through payment of an
    agreeable amount of money.
