If you have been injured by someone else’s intentional or negligent conduct, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. These injuries may include your physical health, your reputation, or even your emotional state of mind. Physical injuries giving rise to claims include automobile accidents, medical mistakes, defective products, pedestrian/bicycle accidents, and nursing home negligence.
When a family member dies as a result of the intentional or negligent actions of another individual or company, the surviving family members may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. In order to bring this claim, the plaintiff must be a close family relative such as a parent or spouse of the deceased. The deceased must also have been entitled to bring a claim at the time of his or her death. If these conditions apply, then a personal injury case that the deceased could have brought can be brought by surviving family members.

A criminal case involves a government prosecuting attorney bringing charges against a defendant for crimes he has been alleged or accused of committing. This usually happens after an individual has been arrested by police for an alleged crime, such as drug possession or drinking and driving, but this is not always the case. Before charges are brought, the arresting officers and prosecuting attorney decide whether to prosecute based on the evidence. This evidence can include witness testimony, physical evidence like drugs or stolen property, and even tape recordings or video surveillance of an alleged crime.
