There are several types of personal injury that can be sustained in an accident. Personal injury can be caused by accidents such as:
- Automobile accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Defective products
- Medical negligence
While it is true that personal injury can result from these and other circumstances, the extent of personal injuries can vary wildly.
Examples of Personal Injury
A personal injury is any injury that you sustain due to someone else’s negligence. This can be something as simple as a broken bone, but all too often personal injury is catastrophic. Examples of personal injury include:
- Burn injures
- Back and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
Serious injuries sometimes lead to death. In these cases, the immediate family may be able to file a wrongful death suit.
When someone else’s negligence results in serious injury, you have a right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
