What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury occurs when suffering physical injury to a person’s body, mind or emotions. Personal injury is the legal term which permits a civil case to proceed.
When a person or business entity is found to have caused the personal injury as a result of negligence, they can be legally responsible for the injuries or emotional damage caused and then obligated to pay for the damages.
What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
While criminal cases are led by the government, a personal injury lawsuit is initiated by a private individual referred to as the plaintiff. If the plaintiff suffers bodily harm or injury as a result of someone’s negligence or has not taken precautions to safeguard their property, the plaintiff has a legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit to help recoup loses for their pain and suffering or financial losses.
The plaintiff will generally hire a personal injury lawyer to fight the lawsuit against the liable party who is also known as the defendant. The personal injury lawyer works with the plaintiff to prove the defendant or liable party was at fault for the plaintiff’s physical or emotional harm.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
A personal injury lawsuit can involve a myriad amount of reasons for filing a lawsuit and the types of personal injury cases can vary dramatically. Whether suffering injuries at work, in an auto accident or during medical surgery from a doctor, the type of personal injury cases include:
Auto Accidents: Millions of people are involved in motor accidents every year with numerous injuries and fatalities occurring as a result. Whether as a driver, passenger, bicyclist, or pedestrian, being involved in motor vehicle accident may entitle you to compensation for your personal injuries and potential financial loss.
Medical Malpractice: Doctors, nurses, hospitals, and any other medical professional can be the subject of a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you’ve suffered serious injuries as a result of negligence from a medical professional, filing a medical malpractice lawsuit can help you receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
Slip and Fall: An extremely common personal injury lawsuit is a slip and fall case also known as premises liability which is when someone is injured while using someone else’s premises or property. The property owner and sometimes the renter as well has a legal obligation to keep the property safe and free of unnecessary dangers.
Wrongful Death: Wrongful death lawsuits are the result of a person’s negligence causing someone else’s untimely death. While the deceased can no longer defend themselves, the survivors of the deceased person may file a wrongful death lawsuit as a way to compensate for the loss of their loved one.
Animal injuries: The most common injury suffered from an animal is a dog bite. When a dog does cause bodily harm through a bite or other means, the dog’s owner may be responsible for paying for the victim’s medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost income suffered as a result of the owner’s pet.
Defective Products: When a business manufactures or sells products that cause injury or death, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed. The business has an obligation to produce safe and effective products but if negligence results in design or manufacturing defects that cause harm, the business can be subjected to a personal injury lawsuit.CALL NOW
