Personal injury is defined legally as an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. The term is common in legal cases where a plaintiff files a lawsuit that alleges their injury has been caused by the negligence of another.
If you are suffering from a personal injury that has been caused by the negligence of another, the attorneys at Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
The most common types of personal injury claims are as follows:
- Auto accidents
- Accidents at work
- Tripping accidents
- Assault claims
- Accidents in the home
- Product defect accidents
- Medical negligence
- Product liability
Research shows that nearly 6 million automobile accidents occur each year and approximately half result in serious injuries. If negligence on the part of another party can be proved, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation.
