What is Considered a Personal Injury?

A lawsuit may not always be your best recourse, but there are instances when it is necessary in order to recoup your losses for damages or injuries suffered due to the negligence of another. If this does happen to you, filing a personal injury claim will help you recover any monetary damages. Hiring a personal injury lawyer will also aid in getting you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Personal Injury Lawyer Answers: What Is Personal Injury?

If something happens to a person that is the direct result of another, the grounds are set for a probable personal injury lawsuit. The damages that a victim incurs could be bodily harm, emotional distress, property damage or some combination of these.

What are Some Examples of Personal Injury?

There are numerous things that warrant filing a potential personal injury lawsuit. A few examples include:

  • A child is hurt when it is discovered that a piece of playground equipment was improperly installed.
  • A bicycle rider is hit by a car and seriously injured.
  • A person is killed in a car accident caused by a drunk driver.
  • A home burns down because an electrician made a mistake in doing wiring work.
  • A customer trips and falls on a wet floor in a store.
  • People are killed in car wrecks because a manufacturer released faulty cars

How Do You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Once you have gotten over the shock and pain of the situation, the best course of action is to find a personal injury lawyer who will represent you. They will interview you and get all the details of the situation. Further, they will file the case with the courts. They may need to hire experts, such as accident reconstruction specialists, to prove that negligence caused the accident or other action that was harmful to you.

What Happens When You Win a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

If you win your lawsuit, the recovery you receive for damages depends entirely on the situation. In the most unfortunate of circumstances, when a loved one is killed, you could receive recovery for funeral expenses, compensation for that person’s expected future earning. If you are the injured party, you could be awarded medical expenses, and recompense for any other damages to you or your property.

Look at the injury or property damage as well as the degree of negligent behaviors that caused harm to you. If your injuries are severe, cause you to miss work, and the at-fault party either has no insurance or denies responsibility for their actions, then contact an Orange personal injury law firm to represent you.
