What is a Personal Injury Case?

In a nutshell, a personal injury case can be claimed whenever one person is harmed from an accident or injury because of the actions of another person. The accident doesn’t have to be intentional, of course. But someone could still be on the hook for personal injury medical expenses and more under many circumstances.

Personal injuries can be devastating to those who suffer them. These types of claims cover a wide variety of injuries and ills, including:

  • broken bones
  • slip and fall injuries
  • burn injuries
  • automobile accidents and associated injuries
  • traumatic brain injuries
  • and much more

As a result, those who suffer personal injuries may need to press a claim against another individual in order to receive damages to help them recover from the incident.

How Do Personal Injury Cases Occur?

Most personal injury cases occur because of an accident. Take motor accidents, for example. Although no one deliberately tries to cause a motor accident, someone being negligent (like texting on their cell phone instead of watching the road) can easily cause one just the same. That person might be on the hook for a personal injury case depending on the circumstances.

Other types of personal injury cases occur in work environments. For instance, a shelf display at a retail store falling on a customer might occur because an employee didn’t stabilize the shelf or put it together properly. The retail store could be on the hook for a personal injury claim.

Ultimately, personal injury cases can happen anywhere and to anyone, including:

  • at the grocery store
  • on the road in your car
  • on the sidewalk
  • at a park or playground
  • at a restaurant

What Compensation Can You Receive from a Personal Injury Case?

The medical costs for personal injuries can vary wildly, but they are often too expensive for the victim to handle by themselves. Thus, personal injury defendants may be found guilty and their insurance may be forced to compensate the victim for multiple things, including:

  • past and future medical expenses
  • damages for lost income if the victim is unable to work
  • damages for future lost income if the victim is paralyzed
  • pain-and-suffering damages to account for physical and mental turmoil

However, successfully winning a personal injury claim relies on having an airtight case and understanding California personal injury law. For instance, the statute of limitations states that personal injury victims must press a claim within three years of the accident date.
