Personal injury refers to injury anywhere on the victim’s actual body. It omits injury to property or belongings. It can, however, include injury to a person’s psyche or character; as with Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress or defamation of character. These types of injury may bring rise to civil suits, if egregious enough. The only way to know whether an injury supports a case in the Houston metropolitan area is to contact a qualified personal injury attorney. John K. Zaid & Associates, PLLC has practiced personal injury law in Houston for many years. The lawyers at Zaid Law have seen a range of victims suffering from various devastating injuries ranging from brain injuries to construction injuries to catastrophic injuries.
There are unforeseen potential dangers around us everywhere and every day. We don’t realize so many things are hazardous until after they have already caused injury. Every object we interact with has a series of potentially liable actors behind it: decision makers, manufacturers, employees, third party sellers, and maintenance officers. There is bound to be human error, and when personal injury is the result, that error is not always on the part of the victim. A personal injury attorney’s job is to discover where, along the chain of participants, the process broke down and caused physical or psychological harm.
In the city of Houston, growing traffic rates and an under developed public transit system make the city particularly vulnerable to incidents of personal injury. At John K. Zaid & Associates, PLLC the overwhelming majority of clients have suffered personal injury from automobile accidents. This is the most common sort of personal injury people sustain, though not the only possible source of a viable claim.
