Question: What Is A “Personal Injury Case”?

If you have been injured by the fault, or “negligence,” of another and decide to seek recovery for your harms, losses and damages, this is called a “personal injury case.” Personal injuries are injuries to the body and any other damages that flow directly from those injuries. “Negligence” is legally defined as the “breach” of a “duty.” A duty is breached when the actor behaves in an unreasonable way. One way to think of this concept is as a violation of the “rules of the road” whether literally, in a motor vehicle case, or figuratively, in any other type of situation where the actor deviates from what they should or should not do. In order for there to be a legal recovery, the breach of duty must cause damages, which are described above. Typical personal injury cases arise from car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, workplace injuries and wrongful death.
