What is Personal Injury?

If you have sustained an injury to your body, mind or emotions as a result of another party’s negligence or wrongful act, you have a personal injury case. The experienced attorneys at Modesitt Law Firm will review your case to determine whether you are entitled to compensation. We handle all types of cases, including:

  • Wrongful death

  • Accidents

  • Defective products

  • Slip and falls

  • Disability claims

In the eyes of the law, an individual or entity is negligent when they fail to act with the same level of caution that a sensible person, under the circumstances, would act with. Our team will thoroughly examine your case to determine when and where negligence played a role.
