A personal injury in the legal context is when someone is harmed by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts of another person. In car accident cases, it is not uncommon for there to be both an injury to your person and an injury to your property, such as your car. In this circumstance, the injury to you may lead you to ask for compensation for your personal injury, and the damage to your property may lead you to seek a separate property damage claim. For more information for how to handle your property damage claim, please see our blog on property claims.
There are a significant number of cases that fall under the broad category of “personal injury” claims. For instance, if you are injured in a car accident, then you may have a personal injury claim. If you are injured from a slip and fall on someone’s property, then you may have a personal injury claim. If you are injured because of medical negligence, then you may have a personal injury claim.
There are a wide variety of personal injury claims and as a result, it takes a personal injury attorney to handle your personal injury claim if you have one. You wouldn’t go see a heart doctor to operate on your brain, and so it’s important for you to select a personal injury attorney who works primarily on personal injury claims. Even though there are a lot of people who advertise for personal injury cases, your case is too important for just anyone to handle.
