A personal injury is defined as any harm caused to a person, such as a broken bone, a cut, a bruise or slander. Any type of bodily injury as a result of an attack, negligence or accident can also be categorized as the same. You can file a lawsuit to recover damages from whoever is responsible for your injuries.

What is a personal injury?
A personal injury is a serious harmful act to a person or persons as a result of someone else’s negligence. Personal injury law can involve many types of accidents including truck accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, premises liability, workplace injuries and accidents, spinal cord and brain injuries, pharmaceutical negligence, amputations, wrongful death, failure to diagnose cancer, birth and neonatal injuries, toxic torts, and child abuse.
Why are personal injury lawsuits filed?
Personal injury lawsuits are filed because of vehicle or auto accidents, negligence, workplace accidents, products liability and several other reasons. Accidents do occur, and over time laws and safety regulations have been created so that exposure to potentially deadly or harmful events could be reduced to protect citizens. Since it is impossible to prevent all accidents from occurring, victims of personal injury have rights supported by the government to file claims to recover damages suffered.
How much is my case worth?
First and foremost, if a lawyer or law firm gives you a dollar value for your case right away, don’t trust it. They are likely making unrealistic promises, or may be persuading you to settle for less than your case is actually worth in order to settle it quickly. It is impossible to know what kind of settlement to expect before investigating the extent of any injuries sustained, medical costs, lost wages, future expenses, and pain and suffering. This is why it is important that you hire a lawyer who will complete a thorough investigation and who will never advise you to accept a settlement for less than you truly deserve. Each case is unique, so the best way to learn about what compensation you may be entitled to is to speak with an attorney at Kafer Law for free.
