If you were injured in an accident, don’t accept that you cannot be compensated for your injuries due to claims of insufficient insurance or questionable fault. Let a professional aggressively investigate your accident and fight for your right to compensation for damages. Our team will leave no stone unturned in our quest for a fair resolution to make you whole again.
We know you want a number to shoot for but because most cases have so many moving parts, compensation is very difficult to estimate without a Wyoming personal injury attorney conducting a thorough investigation and assessing the key components of the case. The extent of your injuries depends on the unique circumstances of your accident and other factors such as negligence, liability, injury severity, and property damage.
Once we are able to fully evaluate your case, we will give you our honest opinion of your probability for success and potential for compensation. We will always strive to secure as much compensation for your injuries as is allowable under the law.
Most people think that personal injury cases only refer to automobile accidents which produce injuries. While those types of cases are common, personal injury includes any case where a person received injuries due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence. Some of the more common personal injury cases include:
At our practice, every potential personal injury case is evaluated by a Wyoming personal injury attorney to determine if any monetary damages can be recovered. In order to evaluate a potential personal injury case, it is helpful if the victim has evidence of negligence in some form.
Although some of the accidents on the personal injury list seem like minor incidents, each has the potential to produce impairment or major injury. When the cost of medical care and employment damages are factored in, fair compensation can reach a very high number.

As a consumer in the United States, you have a right to safe products. This means when you buy something and use it properly you have legal recourse to compensation if the product is defective and causes injury when you use it properly.
This also means companies that manufacture goods and stores that sell products have an obligation to make reasonable efforts to ensure their products are safe and labeled properly to prevent injuries. If you are injured by a defective product, a Wyoming defective product attorney can help you receive compensation for your damages.
Products can cause injuries for a variety of reasons, but usually the defect falls into one of three categories. If an error occurred in manufacturing or assembly, the problem is known as a manufacturing defect. If the problem was created before the product was ever manufactured, it is known as a design defect. And, if the product is improperly labeled or labeled in a way that leads to injury, the responsible party is liable for failing to warn the consumer of potential hazards (or failure to warn).
An experienced Wyoming defective product attorney understands the different types of defects and can attribute liability to the responsible party.

When you are injured through no fault of your own in an accident, deciding who is accountable for your injuries can be complicated. Many factors play a role in ultimately deciding who is responsible for your damages. Different parties may be held accountable, including individuals or corporate entities, depending on their role in the accident.
Liability is the assignment of responsibility for damages to the at-fault party involved in the accident. Once the liable party is identified, it will be responsible for damages incurred as a result of the accident. Proving liability can be complicated and is best left in the hands of an experienced and skilled Wyoming personal injury attorney. Often, proving liability is dependent on establishing negligence.
Many times, establishing the at-fault party is not enough. Negligence must also play a role to warrant compensation for injuries. For an act to be negligent, a person must act outside the scope of reasonable care to prevent injuries to others. Consulting with a qualified attorney will reveal what types of documentation and evidence is best to prove negligence.
In Wyoming, damages normally take three forms; special (economic) damages, general (non-economic) damages, and punitive damages. Compensation can include special, general, punitive, or any combination of the three types of damages.
These economic damages are the actual monetary cost of the accident. As such they are easy to quantify. Things like medical bills, lost wages, and vehicle repair fall into this category.
Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify but are equally important to the victim of an accident. Items such as emotional anguish and pain and suffering fall into this category. Many general damages are determined using factors such as the extent of the injury, any disability or disfigurement caused by the accident, any impairment, any aggravation of pre-existing conditions, and the amount of economic loss suffered.
Occasionally someone who is liable for an accident has behaved in an especially reckless or careless manner. In these cases, punitive damages may be awarded as punishment. The amount is usually a multiple of the compensatory damages awarded.
Being the victim of an accident can change your life in the blink of an eye. If you are fortunate enough to survive you may be left with painful injuries which take months or years to heal. And, even then there is no guarantee you will make a complete recovery.
This can lead to astronomical medical expenses and a drastic reduction in your ability to earn money or even be employed. Many victims feel an emotional and mental strain in addition to their physical injuries which can erode their quality of life. It’s understandable. The stress of having your life turned upside down with no light at the end of the tunnel is enough to weaken even the strongest among us.
There can be a solution; an end game which restores your life and enables you to recover from your injuries with dignity. It all starts by contacting an experienced Wyoming personal injury attorney to evaluate your case.
