Personal Injury is defined as an injury to a person's body, mind, or emotions. Personal injury can result from someone's actions or someone's failure to act. A personal injury lawsuit is filed in the Civil Division in Superior Court and is seeking monetary damages for the victim. Many personal injury cases involve a statute of limitations, meaning you can lose your right to file a lawsuit if it isn't done in a certain period of time. Some of the most common personal injury claims are listed below:
Auto Accident Injury
If a person experiences an injury as a result of a car accident, he or she may be able to seek compensation for their injuries. The plaintiffs need to have medical documentation detailing the injuries sustained, insurance information, as well as a police report detailing the events of the accident.
Medical malpractice cases deal with injuries caused by a doctor's negligence or inappropriate treatment. These personal injury cases typically require the doctor to have broken a rule or taken incorrect, negligent, or inappropriate actions in treating a patient.
In the event that a person is injured while using a defective product, he or she may be entitled to seek compensation for injuries.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Persons injured due to a slip and fall on public or private property may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Slip and fall personal injury cases typically depend on the safety of the environment—an injured person's case is strengthened if the property was unreasonably or unexpectedly dangerous to others.
Wrongful death claims involve the death of a person due to the negligence of someone else. For example, if a person died as a result of an accident in an unmarked construction site, then his or her family may be entitled to compensation.
Assault is the basis for a criminal charge, as well as a personal injury lawsuit. For example, if someone punches you in the face, that person will be charged criminally with Assault. You, as the victim, can also file a personal injury lawsuit against them seeking compensation for your injuries.
