What is a personal injury case? A personal injury case is when a person is hurt or killed by the negligent or intentional acts of another person or company, and a lawsuit for compensation of money damages ensues. A personal injury claim or lawsuit is brought on behalf of someone who sustains an injury to the body, mind, or emotions. A wrongful death action is brought on behalf of the decedent and their estate and beneficiaries if someone was killed from a personal injury. A personal injury lawsuit is civil matter called a tort. This is different from a criminal case which is when the government brings a case and jail time is at stake. A personal injury lawyer brings the case or claim to get money to pay for the injured personâ€™s medical bills, lost wages, out of pocket expenses and for pain and suffering. A personal injury can happen many different ways. Most commonly a personal injury claim occurs when someone is hurt due to someone elseâ€™s negligence such as in a car accident, truck accident, slip and fall, trip and fall, premises liability case, negligent security at a mall or building complex, dog bites and animal attacks, cruise line injuries, medical malpractice, wrongful death, dangerous products called product liability lawsuits such as for bad pharmaceuticals or manufacturing or design defects in tools, equipment, toys, batteries, cars, etc. Sometimes the personal injury can happen as a result of an intentional act, such as a physical assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation, and slander. A person or a company can be found to be liable for a personal injury, thus requiring them to pay compensatory damages, and in some cases punitive damages. Punitive damages are additional penalties for especially dangerous conduct that shows a conscious disregard for the someoneâ€™s life or safety. Often times individuals or entities have liability insurance to help pay for those losses.
