NAVIGATING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Introduction to Personal Injury Law
 Personal injury law encompasses legal remedies and defenses
concerning civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct.
 Seeking legal representation is crucial for individuals who have
suffered injuries to ensure fair compensation and justice.
Common Personal Injury Cases
 Personal injury cases in Scranton commonly involve incidents such
as car accidents, slip and fall, medical malpractice, and workplace
injuries.
 In Scranton, these cases account for a significant portion of legal
matters, affecting numerous individuals each year.
Legal Rights of Injured Individuals
 Injured individuals have the right to seek compensation for
damages, covering medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional
distress.
 A personal injury lawyer plays a vital role in protecting the rights
of the injured, navigating legal complexities, and negotiating with
insurers.
The Legal Process
 The legal process begins with a thorough investigation to gather
evidence, assess liability, and determine the extent of damages.
 Negotiation vs. Litigation: While many cases are resolved through
negotiation, litigation becomes necessary when parties cannot
reach a fair settlement.
Compensation and Damages
 Types of Compensation: In personal injury cases, compensation
may include economic damages (medical bills, lost wages) and
non-economic damages (pain and suffering).
 Factors Influencing Compensation: The severity of injuries, long-
term impact, and liability are crucial factors affecting the
compensation amount.
Importance of Timely Action

preservation of evidence and increases the likelihood of a
