Personal Injury

What is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions, as opposed to damage to, or loss of, property. In order to have a viable personal injury claim, you will need to show that another party’s negligent, careless, or intentional behavior caused or contributed to the cause of your injury.

Compensation to Get in Personal Injury Claim

The amount of compensation you can be awarded in a personal injury claim depends of the severity of your injuries and the degree of fault of the other party. To illustrate how a personal injury claim works, let’s take a hypothetical situation:

You are driving your car when suddenly another car hits you because they were distracted. This causes you severe injuries, including broken facial bones, road rash, and more. A successful personal injury lawsuit could get you compensation for:

  • Your medical bills resulting from the accident.
  • Future medical bills caused by your accident.
  • Pain and suffering the injuries caused.
  • Mental anguish and emotional duress.
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
  • Permanent injury or handicap.
  • Scarring and disfigurement.
  • Lost wages.
  • Loss of career or earning capacity.
  • Reduced earning capacity.
  • Occupational therapy and retraining.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death

 

 

Common causes of injuries that result in personal injury claims are as follows:

Car Accidents Motorcycle Accidents
Truck Accidents Wrongful Death
Catastrophic Accident Construction Accident
Pharmaceutical Liability Premise Liability
Offroad Vehicle Accident Ride-Share (Uber) Accident
Factory Accident Industrial Accident
Defective Road Defective Product
