To most people, the term “personal injury” means that someone was injured in a motor vehicle accident. However, “personal injury” is a legal term that refers to any physical or mental injury caused by either intent or negligence of another person. Negligence is when a person fails to act in a reasonable or careful way when they are required by law to exercise a certain level of care. Whether that negligence is behaving in a certain way or failing to safeguard something within their control, that person can be held legally responsible for any injuries resulting from their actions or inactions.
Personal injury lawsuits are an attempt by the victim or the victim’s family to recover financial damages from the negligent person. In order to have a personal injury claim, a party must be proven liable and there must be evidence of negligence on the part of the liable party. There also must be an evaluation of the degree of personal injury to be compensated for. If the injuries are minor and temporary, there likely will not be a cause to file a personal injury lawsuit.
