What is a “Personal Injury” Lawsuit?

Personal Injury Lawsuits

A personal injury lawsuit may arise from an injury a person sustains as the result of an accident, especially if the accident could have been reasonably prevented or was caused by the negligence of another person or company. 

Common types of accidents that give rise to personal injury lawsuits are traffic accidents, slip-and-fall or other accidents at a place of business, accidents due to defective products (product liability), medical and dental accidents, also known as medical malpractice, and various types of occupational diseases, such as mesothelioma, emphysema, silicosis, asthma, COPD, and occupational deafness, to name a few.

“Wrongful Death” is another type of personal injury lawsuit where a deceased person’s surviving family members can seek to recover damages for the loss of a family member’s care and companionship, as well as for the lost income the family member would have earned during his lifetime.

Depending on your case, you may be entitled to recover substantial monetary damages, to include the cost of past and future medical care, medications and therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering.
