WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?
A personal injury claim that arises when someone suffers an injury, either physical or emotional, that is caused by someone else. These claims can arise out of either intentional or negligent conduct. Personal injury claims arising from intentional conduct include assault, battery, defamation, including both libel and slander, and conversion, which simply means unlawfully taking someone else’s property. Personal injury claims arising from negligent conduct include automobile collisions, medical and other professional malpractice, exposure to harmful, toxic substances, slip and fall cases, defective products, and improperly maintained property which causes injury.
If you have a personal injury claim, you may be able to recover monetary damages for your injuries, permanent impairment, disfigurement and loss of quality of life, as well as your medical bills and lost wages.
