Many people each and every day suffer injuries because of an accident at home, in a motor vehicle, or even on the job. These personal injuries can either be intentional or unintentional, but they still leave the victim and their loved ones suffering with medical bills, lost wages, and not to mention emotional trauma. If you or a loved one has suffered from a personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering and any damages caused by the personal injury.What Is Personal Injury Law?
A personal injury is any injury caused by a careless action of another person or by a defective product, whether or not that injury was intentional. If another person or a defective product has injured someone, then they may have a case to file a claim and lawsuit. If a person or product is responsible for the injury of a person, then they are legally responsible for their actions. The party responsible for the injury is also legally responsible for paying for that person’s injury or injuries and possibly additional compensation or punitive damages to help them get their life back to the way it was before the injury occurred.What Are Some Injuries that May Be Covered under a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
