What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is when one private individual or entity sues another private person or entity for wrongdoing or harm.
Most personal injury cases are based on the legal concept of ‘negligence’. Every member of our society has a duty to act responsibly, in a way that won’t put others in harms way. When a person or entity fails to act responsibly, and someone is injured as a result, they are being negligent. The injuries can be physical, mental, emotional, or even financial.
Common examples of personal injury cases include:
- Drunk driving and other vehicle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Unsafe work environments
- Defective products
- Slips and falls
- And more
If you or a loved one were injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to sue for damages. Damages are usually made in the form financial compensation for the medical bills, property loss, pain and suffering, and other consequences of the injury.
