A personal injury case is a type of claim that the law allows for a claimant to recover damages to make them whole.  Those damages could include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical impairment, disabilities, etc. Depending upon the intent or negligence of the responsible party, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation.

The most common types of personal injury claims are car or truck accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, wrongful death, and slip and fall injuries.
