Personal Injury Law
Personal injury law covers situations in which a person's body, mind, or emotions are hurt, usually due to someone else's negligence or carelessness.
A personal injury claim, by definition, does not include a claim for damage done to property, such as an automobile or its contents.
Also note, a personal injury claim, by definition, does include claims for the death of a family member by wrongful means (wrongful death claims).
Typically, personal injury claims are the result of the negligence of another person. Common sources of personal injury claims include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Automobile, motorcycle and bicycle crashes
- Pedestrian/vehicle collisions
- Defective product claims
- Medical malpractice
- Slip and fall claims
