Typical cases accepted include, but are not limited to:
Personal injury comes in many forms, but the most prevalent is Automobile Crashes. With any personal injury, the first determination necessary before deciding to pursue compensation is assigning liability. The second determination is figuring the amount of damages. These two concepts work in tandem. That is, one cannot recover damages from one who is not liable, and if one is liable, but there are no damages, there is nothing to recover for the liability. Thus, we have the common liability insurance, which is to protect insures against a monetary loss incurred by causing damages through a liable act.
