A “personal injury case” means any injury inflicted on a person’s body as a result of another person’s negligence.
The most common type of personal injury occurs during a car accident. Another common type is a slip, trip and fall while on another’s property.
Personal injuries can occur in many settings including while driving, as a passenger, as a bicyclist, or as a pedestrian. It can also occur while you are a guest on someone’s property or performing a service on someone’s property. It can occur in the most tragic of situations involving a death (this is referred to as a “wrongful death” case) when the death is caused by the fault of another.
In most areas of your daily life, if you are injured due to no fault of your own, you may have the right to bring a personal injury claim.
