Personal Injuries are injuries to a person’s body, mind or well being, as opposed to damage to a person’s property or contract rights. The most common form of personal injury is car accidents, but the term encompasses much, much more. It can include trip and falls, defamation, dog bites, product liability (faulty products/machines), assault, even sexual assault. Personal injuries are caused by intentional, reckless or negligent acts of individuals or corporations.
The damages from a personal injury are varied. They include what are called “special damages” – damages that can have a specific money value assigned, such as past and future medical expenses, lost wages or future care costs. They also include “general damages” which are items like pain and suffering and emotional distress. These damages combine to make up the value of an injured person’s claim.
