What is a Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a term that is used in the field of law. It essentially means if you or your property has been injured because of the actions or inactions of somebody else then you are due compensation for this incident. Generally, compensation is sought through monetary settlements. The main purpose of seeking compensation is to restore your life back to the way it was prior to the incident caused by the actions or inactions of somebody else. Not all injuries can be fully restored back to pre-incident wholeness, sometimes these incidents leave individuals forever changed. Hiring a lawyer will help you to fight for the compensation you deserve and it will help prevent these incidents from happening again to someone else. Common incidents are:

  • Car Accidents

  • Negligence of a Property Owner– such as a slip and fall due to a wet floor at the grocery store

  • Product Failure– such as buying a stool and then the stool breaks and you get hurt

  • Product Defect– buying a product that is defected and because of the defect you are injured

  • Wrongful Death– loved one is deceased due to the wrongful actions of somebody else against them

These are some examples of what can be considered a personal injury and you could possibly bring forth claims against the negligent party and seek compensation. Essentially it is anytime you suffer an emotional or physical injury due to the actions or inactions of somebody else. It is important to remember that not every incident brought before the court or to an attorney for legal advice results in monetary compensation.
