Why You Need Personal Injury Defense
No matter where you live or work, you always face potential dangers that could result in personal injury.
If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, then you may have a valid claim. Negligence is most generally described as acting carelessly, such that another individual or party is harmed as a result. We all owe a duty of care, meaning that we should act in safe and reasonably careful ways. A breach of this duty is considered to be negligence.
At the Law Office of Ify Ononogbu, your safety and well-being are our primary concern, so we’ll come to you if your injuries prevent you from coming to our office. We can refer you to medical specialists, along with other professional advisors, and recommend additional services that can help you while your case is being prepared.

Construction Site, Slip & Fall, Workers Comp
Accidents at construction sites, particularly slips and falls, can result in serious injuries. If you’ve been injured due to a slip or fall at a construction site, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. This can cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs.
Wrongful Death, Catastrophic Injuries
Experiencing a wrongful death or catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligence can be deeply traumatic. These incidents can result in life-altering conditions, significant medical expenses, and emotional distress. A wrongful death may leave families grappling with loss, grief, and financial hardship. In these challenging times, a personal injury attorney can be your staunch advocate.
The Three Torts
Negligence torts occur when a person’s actions are careless and cause harm to others. The person does not need to intend to cause harm, but their negligent action, or lack thereof, results in damage or injury. Examples include car accidents due to reckless driving or medical malpractice.
Intentional torts occur when a person intentionally acts in a certain way that leads to another person’s harm. This includes situations where the harm is done on purpose, such as assault and battery, false imprisonment, or trespassing.
Strict Liability Torts
Strict liability torts apply when a defendant is in possession of a dangerous substance that could potentially harm others or engages in potentially harmful activities, like keeping wild animals as pets. Regardless of intent or negligence, the defendant will be held liable for any damages caused.
Torts are civil wrongs recognized by law as grounds for a lawsuit. These wrongs result in an injury or harm constituting the basis for a claim by the injured party.
Personal Injury Settlement & Litigation
Personal Injury Settlements
A personal injury settlement is a private agreement reached between the parties involved in a personal injury claim. In most cases, the defendant or their insurer agrees to pay the plaintiff a specified amount of money to drop the case and forego any further legal action related to the incident. The vast majority of personal injury cases end in settlements, typically because they are less risky and more cost-effective than going to trial.
There are various types of settlements. A lump-sum settlement provides the entire compensation amount all at once, while a structured settlement pays out the compensation over time.
Personal Injury Litigation
If a settlement cannot be reached, the case may proceed to litigation, which involves taking the dispute to court. A judge or jury will then decide the outcome of the case.
