You have probably heard the term ‘personal injury’ in radio and television ads, or seen advertisements for personal injury lawyers on billboards and buses. But what exactly is personal injury? Personal injury is an area of the law that deals with damage to a person caused either by someone else’s negligence or by a deliberate, intentional act. Personal injuries can be physical – such as a broken leg, or whiplash; emotional – such as feelings of anger, guilt or hopelessness; or psychological – such as anxiety, difficulty concentrating or depression.

Personal injury damage can be distinguished from other damage such as property damage or financial loss, although these types of damages can also arise from the same event that caused the personal injury. In a personal injury lawsuit, a plaintiff (the person who was injured) seeks compensation for the harm caused by the defendant’s actions. Compensation can be awarded for any of the following:
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Income
- Health Care Expenses
- Loss of Guidance, Care, and Companionship
