“We are to ask what are the elements, on the defendant’s side, which must all be present before liability is possible, and the presence of which will commonly make him liable if damage follows.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. 1881
Translating the quote above is simple. If you were injured through no fault of your own then you have rights. In the quote above the law of torts is mentioned. A tort is an act that injures someone in some way, and for which the injured person may sue for damages. The idea of being compensated because you suffered an injury from an accident that is someone elses fault finds its roots in civilized societies dating back to the Hebrews and the Romans.

At the Ast Law Firm we fight corporations and insurance companies on a daily basis. We make sure that our clients are fairly and adequately compensated for their injuries, pain, loss of enjoyment of life, and all other damages they are entitled to under the law. A simple rear end collision can result in serious injuries. Although the vehicle that a person is driving in may not appear to have been heavily damaged, the physical injuries suffered by the occupants of that vehicle may tell a different story. For example a person may suffer a cervical injury, known a s neck injury, evn when property damage to the vehicle is minimal. A neck injury can be a life changing injury, causing a person headaches, hand and finger numbness, weakness in the arms, and painful flare ups in the neck for a lifetime.
