What is considered a personal injury?
The term “personal injury” refers to the area of law that permits you to receive a legal remedy for all losses stemming from an accident or another incident where someone else’s carelessness or intentional conduct caused you to be injured.
A personal injury case is a civil action, meaning that when some other person or a business is found to be legally responsible (at fault) for causing your injuries, the remedy comes in the form of damages — money that is paid by the liable party (the defendant) to the injured party (the plaintiff). With criminal liability, however, the person who has committed the wrong will be subject to sanctions like imprisonment, fines, and community service if they are prosecuted and convicted in criminal court.
Most personal injury cases are governed by the law of negligence, which dictates the level of reasonable care that is owed from one person to another in a given situation, and the kinds of conduct that would amount to a breach of that legal duty, leading to liability for any resulting injury.
Examples of Personal Injury Cases:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Wrongful Death
- Car Accidents
- Pedestrian/Bicycle Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Insurance Disputes
- Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
- Slip & Fall Accidents
- Truck Accidents
