A personal injury occurs when a person is harmed as a result of another person’s negligence, carelessness or intentional conduct. Such injuries can include physical, mental or emotional harm. Personal injuries may happen anywhere. They most frequently occur in motor vehicle accidents, but also can occur in private homes, businesses, public areas or in the workplace. Injuries caused by medical malpractice or dental malpractice, are also considered personal injuries.
Personal Injury Lawyers
Anyone who has a injury can file a lawsuit against the person or organization that caused the injury. If the injured person is so badly hurt that he or she cannot bring an action on their own, the lawsuit can be brought by a spouse, parent, close relative or person with a power of attorney. Our attorneys here at Christensen Law can be of great help if you are thinking about bringing a lawsuit on someone who has caused you injury.
Emotional Distress, Pain and Suffering, Compensation
Generally, lawsuits seek to recover monetary damages so that an injured person can pay to fix property that has been damaged (for example, to repair a damaged car) and pay for medical expenses, lost wages or any other expense caused by the injury. The lawsuit can also seek the payment of money to compensate the victim for pain, suffering and/or emotional distress caused by the injury. Stated another way, the purpose behind the lawsuit is to have the person or business responsible for causing the loss pay money so that the victim can be placed in the position he or she would have been in if the injury had not occurred.
In extraordinary cases, where it is proven that the defendant’s conduct is intentional or particularly reprehensible, it is possible to get punitive damages in addition to general (or monetary) damages.
Winning a personal injury lawsuit and receiving appropriate compensation requires the injured person to prove three key facts:
- Who was negligent
- That the accident caused the injuries
- And that the injuries deserve compensation.
What Are the Types of Personal Injuries?
A injury can be any physical, emotional or mental injury. They range from relatively minor physical injuries to catastrophic injuries to the eyes, brain, spinal cord, arms or legs.
Severe injuries may cause death. In a personal injury lawsuit where the injured person has died, the lawsuit will recover only the medical and other costs incurred before death. A special lawsuit, called a wrongful death lawsuit, must be initiated so that the family can recover other losses, such as the future earnings, that the person could have provided to the family if he or she had lived.
Slip & Fall, Dog Bites, Internet
Injuries that occur in homes, public places and businesses can include injuries from a wide range of causes including falls, fires, falling objects and dog bites.
Recently, practical jokes and malicious postings on the Internet have caused mental and emotional injuries that have led to lawsuits. Injuries caused in incidents of workplace violence and crime are also on the rise. Remember we are here to help you with your personal injury lawsuit.
