Every day, people are injured through no fault of their own, suffering pain, disability, and impairment due to the negligence or harmful acts of others. These victims have the right to file claims to recover what they lost through those injuries. In addition, the ability to recover damages in a personal injury case helps to protect others from negligent acts and dangerous conditions. The Rinaldo Law Group is known for its success in handling personal injury cases and helping victims receive the compensation they deserve.
Personal injury lawsuits are filed because of car accidents and other vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, accidents on the job, faulty or harmful products, dangerous drugs, airplane accidents, wrongful deaths and other personal injuries.
According to some groups, personal injury cases are out of control, a symptom of the overly litigious American society. But the facts say otherwise. Data gathered by the National Center for State Courts, show that tort filings actually decreased by nearly ten percent between 1993 and 2002. Federal civil filings also fell by six percent from 1998 to 2003. And during this time, personal injury suits declined from 21.2 percent of all federal civil suits to just 18.3 percent.
By campaigning to place limits on jury awards, certain political groups and corporate interests will only take away power from citizens and in favor of powerful corporations, groups and government.

Personal Injury Cases
“Personal injury” cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. A personal injury case can become formalized through civil court proceedings that seek to find others legally at fault through a court judgment or, as is much more common, such disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed.
Personal Injury Claims
A personal injury claim is between you and the at-fault driver’s insurance company before any lawsuit is considered. The claims process is a series of negotiations between you and the insurance company’s claims adjuster. The negotiations hopefully result in a compromised settlement payment, where both parties are satisfied.
