Personal injuries may include any sort of physical harm to a person that was caused by the negligence of another individual. We often see personal injury claims from motor vehicle crashes, but they can also include slip and fall accidents, defective product injuries, and more.
Any kind of injury can be an inconvenience on some level, but depending on the situation and the amount of harm caused, a personal injury could affect you for the rest of your life. If it’s a serious injury, the victim is first left with pain to recover from, as well as medical bills to pay and time to take off of work to recover which means lost wages. Without any money coming in and a lot of out-of-pocket costs going to pay for your health care, the aftermath of a personal injury accident can be extremely stressful. Damages resulting from a personal injury can also include non-economic impacts, such as mental distress or loss of companionship. This is a difficult experience that no one should have to go through alone.
In addition to pain and suffering, the victim will most likely have to deal with an insurance company that will often attempt to limit their liability in order to provide the minimum payment to injured victims.
