What constitutes personal injury?

Personal injury is a legal term that's used to describe injuries, both physical and psychological, that are caused by the negligence of another. A plaintiff is entitled to be compensated for all the injuries that are caused. There are many aspects to personal injuries. These include both the physical injury, the psychological injury, pain and suffering, which means not only pain but the disability that it's caused, loss of the enjoyment of the pleasures and pursuits of life.

You're entitled to be compensated for all your medical costs and any other costs that were incurred. You're also entitled to loss of earnings. If you or a loved one has been injured by the negligence of another in a car accident, a bus or a truck wreck on an unsafe construction site or a defective sidewalk or stairway, or by medical malpractice, it is important for you to seek out the advice and counsel of a qualified attorney with the experience knowledge and commitment to represent you or your loved one to the best of their abilities and to provide you with just compensation.
