Defining Personal Injury
Falling under tort law (civil wrong recognized as grounds for a lawsuit), personal injury has many facets. In personal injury cases, you, as the one having sustained some kind of injury, are seeking reparations for the injuries that you have received. These injuries may have been received in an automobile accident, a motorcycle accident, a construction site, a workplace, etc. Most commonly thought of only as physical injury, personal injury also includes psychological damage. This psychological trauma could be caused by having faced life threatening injuries or life-altering disabilities, a result of having seen injury/trauma in others, or the ensuing emotions following having personally escaped serious injury in an accident. In order to receive compensation for your personal injury, your attorney will have to prove to a jury not only that the defendant is liable, but that there was negligence as well. If it is proved that you were not exercising all the necessary caution to avoid injury, your may be considered to be partially guilty as well and not receive much, if any, reparations for your injuries. However, in the case that your attorney is able to prove the defendant to be completely liable and guilty of negligence for the personal injury that you have sustained, you may expect to be awarded money to cover medical costs, wages for what you have/and will lose in recovery and potentially, money for pain and suffering and punitive damages.
