Areas of Practice
Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury is a broad term that covers many different types of legal cases that involve negligence. To receive compensation, you must show that the person who harmed you (defendant) owed a legal duty to you, that there was a breach of that duty, and it caused you harm. Compensation for personal injury lawsuits can include the following:
- Loss of income and/or future earning potential
- Medical Bills (Current & Future)
- Pain & Suffering
- Physical Harm
- Mental Anguish
- Funeral Expenses
In cases where the defendant acted recklessly or with intent, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. Although many cases involve an individual, cases may also be brought against small businesses, professionals or corporations – just to name a few.

Commercial vehicles and other large trucks can weigh as much as 40 tons. When they collide with smaller vehicles (or pedestrians), the damage is often severe or fatal.

Motorcycle accidents are generally caused by some form of negligence. In some cases, however, injury may occur due to road hazards or defects in the motorcycle itself. At Hatfield & Hatfield, we work with experienced investigators and experts to uncover evidence to help prove your case in court.
