The term “personal injury” generally means any bodily harm to a person because of another’s negligence.
What constitutes an injury? According to the dictionary, it is defined as being harmed due to somebody else’s neglect or carelessness. So, for example, if you have been in a car accident and suffer from physical pain with no visible signs of external damage on your body, then this would be considered personal injuries depending on who was at fault for the crash happening, which can cause complications when trying to determine how much they should compensate you based off what type of damages were incurred.

Personal injury claims are life-changing events.

Do I have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the person or company responsible for my injuries? The answer may not always seem straightforward. For example, if an individual suffers from whiplash after being rear-ended in a car accident, they were not at the fault of themselves but was instead hit by another driver who had no insurance coverage – do they still have ground to file suit even though there are conflicting reports about guilt on their part? In cases like this one where liability might be unclear because both parties could potentially bear responsibility.
I want you to know that if someone else caused an accident and injured or killed you, there is no need for this pain and suffering alone. Instead, you deserve compensation from them to help cover any medical expenses and lost wages while recovering at home until back on your feet again!
