Personal Injury Law: The Basics
Personal injury is defined as “physical injury inflicted on a person’s body, as opposed to damage to property or reputation.” When physical injury results from an accident that is caused by someone else’s negligence, this may give rise to a personal injury claim. Under the law, negligence refers to a person’s failure to exercise reasonable care. This may mean driving recklessly, failing to remove snow or ice from a walkway, or failing to take appropriate safety measures in a workplace. There are countless examples of negligence that may lead to injury, and these parties may be held accountable under the law through personal injury litigation.
When an injured victim seeks compensation with a personal injury claim, this is often referred to as damages. Damages are an award paid to compensate a person for his or her loss or injury. In a personal injury case, damages may include monetary compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitative treatment, future earnings, and pain and suffering.
