Personal injury is the legal term used when someone is injured physically or psychologically by another party who acted negligently. The injuries suffered are personal as opposed to those having to do with one’s property. In every state, personal injury laws have been put into place to give injury victims legal recourse against those who act in a negligent manner or who cause deliberate damage to others. These laws help to protect individuals and their families from the devastating consequences that can result from an unexpected and undeserved injury.

Serious injuries and even those less severe can cause physical, emotional, and financial hardships on you and your family. You may require hospitalization, outpatient medical care, and further rehabilitative treatment. You may be unable to work due to your injuries, while medical expenses and other out-of-pocket expenses pile up. All of this can wreak havoc on your financial security. Additionally, you may be suffering physical pain, emotional trauma, and more. In the worst cases, such as those involving brain and spine injuries, permanent disability may require medical care or personal assistance for life.
Under personal injury law, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for economic damages, such as past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and future loss of wages. You may also recover non-economic damages for pain, suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, or similar damages. What you will recover will depend on the specific facts of your case, including the type and extent of your injuries. Having an experienced and skilled attorney handling your case can make a significant difference in the damages you recover.
