One of the more traumatic experiences a person can face
In addition to physical pain, personal injury can cause the injured party and their loved ones significant emotional distress. Because any injury can result in prolonged uncertainty, like medical treatment and financial loss — including wage loss, which can affect a person’s ability to support a family.

What’s considered a personal injury?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary, a personal injury in the context of a negligent action is any harm caused to a person, such as broken bones, a cut, bruises resulting in bodily injury. A personal injury need not be the result of a third party’s negligence; it can also be the result of an intentional act, such as intended physical contact or infliction of emotional distress. Any invasion of a personal right, such as the right to privacy, right to a habitable apartment, mental suffering or false imprisonment constitutes a personal injury.
Compensation for personal injury
Personal injury claims fall into the legal category of torts. A tort is a civil wrong, as opposed to a criminal wrong. So personal injury cases are tried in civil court. This means personal injury clients can pursue remedies like monetary damages. Tort law imposes certain duties and standards of care on individuals, businesses and government entities. When these standards are violated, that’s when you have a claim in tort. Typically, the victim of a personal injury is entitled to collect damages in the form of:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of future income
- Emotional distress
- Property damage
