What is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury occurs when someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional act injures another person. A personal injury claim is not the same as a criminal charge. Personal injury claims arise from individuals while the government brings forth criminal charges.
The purpose of criminal law is to punish using jail or prison time, probation, and fines. Personal injury claims seek to recover costs and compensation for the victim from the at-fault party. This is in an attempt to place the victim in their pre-accident state.
There are several types of personal injury claims. Some of the most common include:
- Car accidents;
- Truck accidents;
- Medical malpractice;
- Premises liability; and
- Workplace accidents.
Common Personal Injury Accidents
Car accidents and commercial truck accidents make up a significant number of personal injury claims. These accidents share some injuries with truck accidents being the more deadly of the two. Car and truck accident injuries may include the following:
- Cuts and bruises;
- Broken bones and fractures;
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis; and
- Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Although most healthcare professionals mean well, medical mistakes regularly occur. Medical malpractice is not limited to doctors but extends to all healthcare professionals. It includes, but is not limited to:
- Birthing errors;
- Surgical infections;
- Failure to diagnose or treat; and
- Prescription errors.
Premises liability is a segment of personal injury law dealing with property owners and possessors and visitors to the property. Those people responsible for the property have specific duties towards visitors and may be liable for accidents such as:
- Slips, trips, and falls;
- Negligent security;
- Swimming pool accidents; and
- Dog bites.
Workplace accidents may also fall under workers’ compensation insurance, personal injury law, or both. When liability for an injury falls upon a third-party, such as a subcontractor, a workplace accident claim may be available for an injured worker. Workplace injuries often include:
- Crushing injuries;
- Falling object injuries;
- Falls from heights; and
