The Types Of Claims We Handle
The term personal injury law can be quite broad, simply because it covers a large variety of topics and categories in the legal industry.
While we do handle almost every type of injury litigation, we will evaluate or case for free and we only get paid when you win.
If you or a loved one has been injured or worse, our attorneys are here to help.

With over 100 jury trials and countless bench trials, our team of attorneys have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients across a variety of areas of personal damages cases.
Types Of Damages
Many people are of the opinion that an injury lawsuit purely focuses on the specific damages that a person has been the victim of. However, most damages claims can be broken down into three primary categories, which consist of:
These damages are often the most common type of personal injury, and involve situations where a person suffers a physical wound in the course of an accident.
They can include:
.... just to name a few.
Emotional stress can often be a more debilitating injury than a physical wound. Unfortunately, due to the nature of this type of damage, it can be very difficult to prove, and often requires the services of a medical / psychological practitioner to validate the claim of the lawsuit.
Some common functions that an emotionally-distressed injury victim may be unable to perform can include:
- unable to perform tasks at work
- inability to socialize
- cannot participate in sporting activities
- unable to perform basic, daily functions
Victims of emotional distress often encounter negative changes in their lifestyle, which can have a profound impact on their overall health and wellbeing.
The impact of financial damages is often felt by more people than just the victim alone. An important element to consider is that the families and loved ones of the injured may be dependent on that person as a source of income or for the tasks that they perform (as a sole provider, or perhaps a care-giver to an elderly family member).
Frequent examples of financial loss can include (but are not limited to):
- loss of wages (short and long-term)
- medical costs
- outpatient treatment fees
- ongoing medication costs
- repair of items damaged in accident (car / truck / motorcycle etc....)
At the law offices of Greg Coleman Law, we are compassionate to injury victims and their families, and will fight for the MAXIMUM compensation benefits that they may be entitled to.
Important Tips To Remember
If you have suffered any damage as a result of the negligence of another person - or due to a defective product - there are some simple, quick tips to follow, to ensure that your best interests are protected immediately following the incident.
Some of these include:
- be sure to NOT sign any releases or give any written or recorded statements until you have consulted a lawyer
- do NOT hesitate to contact a law firm for advice and possible representation
- be sure to keep a copy of any documents or records related to your case
While a lawyer will be able to best advise on the correct path to take for your litigation moving forward, these pointers can help to make sure that your interests are not compromised in the interim.
