Personal Injury

Our Bowling Green and Elizabethtown personal injury attorneys can help.

A personal injury is defined as any harm caused to a person, such as a broken bone, a cut, a bruise or slander.  Any type of bodily injury as a result of an attack, negligence or accident can also be categorized as the same.  You can file a lawsuit to recover damages from whoever is responsible for your injuries.

Why are personal injury lawsuits filed?

Personal injury lawsuits are filed because of auto accidents and other vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, products liability, dangerous drugs and several other reasons.  Accidents do occur, and over time laws and safety regulations have been created so that exposure to potentially deadly or harmful events could be reduced to protect citizens.  Since it is impossible to prevent all accidents from occurring, victims of personal injury have rights supported by the government to file claims to recover damages suffered.
