What is a “Personal Injury” Case?

Personal injury cases refer to any situation in which someone has been injured either on purpose or by accident, and someone else may be at fault. Although these cases are typically resolved through early, informal settlements between the parties and their insurers, some cases are more complicated and require further action.

An informal settlement is the most common type of settlement in personal injury cases. It usually involves a negotiation between the two parties, their lawyers, and their insurers, and eventually a monetary agreement. On the other hand, a lawsuit is a personal injury lawsuit. It happens when a private individual files a complaint against another party which he or she believes is responsible for the damage caused. The case is brought to a civil court where a judge decides the settlement.

Common Types of Personal Injury

Sometimes, people are reluctant to pursue legal action in personal injury cases because they don’t think it applies to their situation. In reality, there are lots of different circumstances that warrant action. Some of the most common are car accidents, premises liability, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence or abuse, workplace accidents, and animal attacks.

If you or someone you know has suffered an injury related to any of these categories, they may be entitled to damages. It is important to act quickly to ensure that you submit your case within the statute of limitations.


If you win your personal injury case, or come to a settlement, you will likely be able to recover damages. Damages are essentially monetary compensations for things like medical bills, property damage, automobile damage, emotional stress, lost earnings, and more.

Recovering damages can mend some of the stress that comes with a personal injury, but you need a credible and experienced attorney on your side to get you what you are owed.
