A personal injury is injury to an individual's
body, mind, or emotions. In some instance of a personal injury an
individual or a company may be liable for the resulting suffering that
the personal injury caused. Personal injuries can occur out of
negligence, an intentional infliction of harm, or the injuring of
another person despite any type of negligence or intent. Personal
injuries vary widely in both the cause and result of the accident.
A personal injury as the result of
negligence is the most common type of claim. Common negligence personal
injury causes are slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, motor
vehicle accidents, and medical malpractice. There are existing
regulations that exist in order to prevent personal injuries from
occurring, but in some instances an individual may be liable for the
personal injury that resulted from their failure to act, whether
intentional or not.
Personal injury law covers the
physical harm the individual may have, as well as the suffering they
endured. Suffering can include emotional humiliation an individual may
have felt because of the personal injury. A personal injury lawyer can
help the individual seek the proper compensation they are qualified for
as a result of the personal injury. The more serious the personal
injury, the more of an impact and influence it probably had on the
individual's life, thus making a higher compensation more likely.
