Every personal injury case, be it intentional or negligence, shares basic points: Liability and damages.
Just ask yourself: Was the person or product that harmed you liable for the injury caused and, if so, what is the extent of your damages? If liability can be proven, then damages can be awarded and you can be compensated for your loss, pain and suffering.
This type of case is simply a legal term for an injury to the body, as opposed to damages to personal property.
Personal injury suits can compensate for measurable costs to you including lost or diminished earnings, hospital and rehabilitation services, or long-term medical care.
Other types of compensation may include pain and suffering and the emotional impact caused to you because of your injuries. The amount of compensation sought is reliant on the severity of damages proven.
