What is a Personal Injury

September 27, 2019

Personal injuries can happen to anyone at any time. Personal injury laws allow an injured person to go to civil court to seek financial compensation for damages received as a result of an accident and other incidents. The injured person can be financially compensated if he or she has been harmed due to the negligence or intentional conduct of an individual or entity. 

Some of the most common personal injury cases involve:

  • Vehicle accidents: injuries from a fender-bender, head-on collision, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, or any other vehicle related incident.
  • Slip and fall accidents: injuries related to unsafe conditions at a place of business, public area, or other private property such as a mall or parking lot.
  • Medical negligence: injuries caused by negligence or mistakes from medical professionals such as giving the wrong medication, following incorrect procedures, or even leaving an instrument inside a patient following surgery.
  • Dog bites: dog owners can be held liable for injuries received from a dog or other animal.
