What is personal injury?
What is personal injury? Personal injury is a situation in the law where harm is caused to a person. In personal injury, this harm or injury is usually by the negligence, carelessness or sometimes, recklessness of another. What are some examples of negligence? It could be a car accident, where someone is not paying attention. Or it could be where they are texting while driving and they cause an accident. Another example might be a business that fails to repair some steps and someone trips and falls. All of these are some of the many situations where a personal injury could happen.
If you have a situation like that and you’re unsure about whether it’s a personal injury case or not, the best thing to do is, just call a lawyer as soon as possible. Why? Because there are often statutes of limitations and things that need to be done immediately if you think you may have a negligence or personal injury type claim.
