Most people have heard of personal injury, but they may not know exactly what it is. If you have been injured by someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may be able to recover financial compensation through the civil court system. But, what exactly qualifies as personal injury?
A personal injury is a type of legal claim that compensates a person for economic and non-economic damages, caused by another person’s negligent or intentional actions. In other words, a personal injury claim can be actioned, if you have been injured because of someone else’s fault, whether it be from a car accident, slip and fall or defective product, etc. This type of claim compensates you for your injuries and holds liable parties accountable for their wrongdoing. Additionally, compensation can also include reimbursement for any expenses incurred, as a result of medical treatment, lost wages due to time missed at work as well as pain and suffering resulting from your experience.
The first step to filing a successful personal injury claim is seeking out a legal counsel who specialises in personal injury law.
