What is a Personal Injury?

By Brown Law Offices  Aug. 24, 2010 9:05a

Personal Injuries Defined

A personal injury may be defined as any physical and/or psychological injury that a person sustains due to another person or entity's conduct. A personal injury may stem from intentional misconduct, as in the case of an attack or assault. It may also stem from carelessness or recklessness, such as a driver who is speeding and causes a car accident.

Your Rights after a Personal Injury

When a person sustains injury because of another's wrongful conduct, he or she may have the right to take legal action in the form of a personal injury lawsuit. This case is brought to civil court and offers the victim the opportunity to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions by seeking financial compensation. Financial damages awarded in a personal injury case can help the victim with such important issues as medical expenses, lost earnings and other economic or non-economic losses or injuries the victim has suffered or will experience in the future due to the injury caused.

An important step to take following a personal injury or an accident is to talk to an attorney about your legal options. You may have the right to seek financial damages, but if your case is not properly presented you may have difficulty recovering the full extent of compensation you deserve.
