Making Your Case for Recovery
Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property and personal injury lawsuits are filed against the person or entity that caused the harm through negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct. Depending on the jurisdictions, some may describe the damages in different ways, but damages typically include the injured person’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life.
Damages can be categorized as either special or general. In torts, special damages are measurable costs which can be itemized such as medical expenses, lost earnings, and property damages whereas general damages include less measurable costs such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, the effects of defamation, and emotional distress. A part from getting compensated for injuries, the injured person may get compensated for the lifetime effect of the injuries.
