Personal injury refers to a legal term used to describe any physical or psychological harm caused to an individual, as a result of another person’s negligence, intentional actions or strict liability. This harm can be inflicted in many ways, including but not limited to, car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, product liability, and workplace accidents.
When an individual suffers a personal injury, they may be entitled to compensation for their damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related expenses. To pursue compensation, the injured party may need to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party or their insurance company.
Personal injury cases can be complex and require the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney who can help victims navigate the legal process and protect their rights. If you have suffered a personal injury, it is important to seek medical attention and consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.
