The term personal injury refers to injuries that are caused to a person’s physical, mental, or emotional health. These injuries are usually the result of negligence on the part of another person, either intentional or unintentional. In cases where a serious injury has taken place, it can be confusing and challenging to know what to do next. Medical bills can pile up as a result of the injury and make it hard, if not impossible, for the injured person to return to work. Long-term damage to quality of life can also be a struggle for many who experience a severe personal injury.
Types of Personal Injury
Personal injuries can happen to anyone in any situation. The types of personal injuries possible vary just as much as the situations where they can arise. Here are some examples of common cases where personal injury can occur:
Train and Railroad Accidents
Airline or Airplane Accidents
Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
Maritime Law (Jones Act)
