Personal Injury Answers

Personal Injury Cases

Personal injuries cases are those where someone intentionally or carelessly hurts you, causing temporary or permanent physical injury. This is a broad category of cases including car accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, and situations where you are hurt at a store or other public location, among others.

In a personal injury lawsuit, you are seeking compensation for the losses you have endured and will sustain as a result of the injury. These losses may include medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of wages, disability, and disfigurement. If someone else’s conduct harms you, then you should be made whole again. When you cannot be made physically whole, the law allows you to recover money damages.

Wrongful Death Cases

Sometimes an injury is so severe that someone dies. These types of cases are called wrongful death lawsuits. In these cases, a family member is seeking damages for the death of a loved one. These damages can include the loss of the deceased person’s income, as well as the love, affection, and companionship the deceased provided to their family.
