Personal Injury Law
The personal injury attorneys at Alba & Straile PLLC understand that being injured from an accident, or losing a loved one due to a tragic incident, is devastating. Medical bills, inability to work, loss of wages, and providing for your family are all valid concerns of a victim who sustains injury due to careless or reckless actions. Those grieving following a catastrophic event resulting in the loss of a precious family member are overwhelmed. In addition to dealing with their grief, they need to make funeral arrangements, notify friends and family, and submit insurance claims on time.
At Alba & Straile PLLC, we understand how added anguish and tension can affect a victim during an already distressing period. Our personal injury attorneys stand behind the belief that recovering from injuries and dealing with loss should be the primary focus—leave the rest to us. In contrast to many other injury practitioners, we offer assistance in a full array of matters arising from an accident or injury, including property damage, reductions in medical liens, as well as life insurance, death benefits, and probate matters.
Why do I need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
You may be wondering, what is the benefit of hiring an attorney focused on personal injury cases? The answer is simple –Everything. Just as the facts of every accident, injury, or death are unique, so are the laws that govern the right to sue and recover for damages. An experienced injury attorney has full knowledge of all relevant provisions of the law and therefore is best equipped to provide effective legal representation.
In addition to knowing the law applicable to your specific matter, a qualified injury attorney can identify all possible sources for seeking compensation.
At Alba & Straile PLLC, we are committed to obtaining maximum recovery for our clients from each available source. We will communicate with insurance companies and opposing counsel during the claims, pre-suit, and litigation processes. Following a damage award, we will also negotiate with your medical providers to reduce the amounts of any medical liens, which, in turn, will increase your overall recovery.

What is Personal Injury?
In general, ‘Personal Injury’ refers to bodily harm caused to a person. It is most commonly associated with damage to a body part. Examples are fractured bones, herniated discs, lacerations, or other catastrophic injuries. Other trauma includes paralysis, disfigurement, loss of limb, significant scarring, head trauma, and even fatality. Additionally, there are damages associated with psychological, mental, or emotional harm.
What is Personal Injury Law?
The term ‘Personal Injury Law’ is a broad method of classifying a specific legal practice area. This practice area is then delineated into distinct subparts, based upon various factors, such as the location of the accident, the parties involved, or the legal theory upon which a claim is based. Consequently, in its practical application, personal injury can encompass multiple legal practice areas such as wrongful death, medical malpractice, premises liability, products liability, or a combination thereof.
For those seeking legal representation, this division into subparts is crucial because not all personal injury attorneys are the same. An attorney must be both experienced and proficient in the specific area(s) of personal injury law that applies to your particular case.
Some of the issues in Personal Injury Cases are:
- Caps on Government Liability
- Catastrophic Injury
- Claims against the Government
- Dealing with Insurance Companies
- Bodily Harm and Wrongful Death
- Pre-existing Conditions & Injury Aggravation
- Psychological Damages
- Subsequent & Concurrent Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Comparative Negligence
