Hi. At Brian Cunhan Associates we
practice personal injury law. What is personal injury law? Personal injury law
is when someone has been injured by the negligence of another person. Some of the most common types of personal injury claims are auto accidents and is very
easy to show negligence in an auto accident because there is a police
report and a police report highlights and assigns blame and responsibility in
the accident so we use the police report to show negligence. Other types of personal injury cases we
handle are slip and fall cases where somebody slips or falls out of premise
and is injured and the business is aware that there is a dangerous situation and
they haven’t taken the steps to fix it as a result somebody is injured. Personal injury law also entails things
like dog bite cases or animal bite cases where an animal bites a person and
injures them animal bite cases are somewhat different than other personal
injury cases and that there’s strict liability which means you don’t have to
show negligence in an animal bite case. If an animal bites an interested person
there’s a case so even for instance if a dog is tied up and a young child wanders
into the yard and the dog bites the child while they are on a chain it’s
still a liability because is strict liability you don’t have to show
negligence in animal bite cases. A subset of personal injury cases is
medical malpractice this is where a doctor or a hospital injures a person.
They are special because in medical malpractice cases it is very expensive
to litigate medical malpractice cases. One of the things that make it so
expensive is you have to have a medical expert. And generally medical experts
charge in the range of 40 thousand, 50 thousand, 60 thousand dollars. So the
injury has to be severe enough that the award is going to be able to cover the
cost of having the medical testimony. And to do the legal work and then after paying
for that actually have some money left over for the patient, because it is
possible you could win a medical malpractice award and it wouldn’t even
cover the cost of litigating the case. Other types of cases are all types of
motor vehicle cases. These include boating accident cases, truck accidents,
bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. We litigate any type of case
in which there is negligence somebody is aware of the danger they know it’s a
problem they know somebody can get hurt. If they don’t do something and if they
make the decision not to do something or they take steps that place others in
harm’s way and people are injured those are the types of cases we litigate. So
that’s basically what personal injury is. At Brian Cunha Associates that’s what we
