What Are Personal Injuries?
Personal injuries happen when employers allow unsafe work environments, drivers disregard safety, or any other time a person fails to uphold their responsibility to protect the well-being of others. A personal injury claim arises when an injured person accuses another person or entity of wronging them and causing them harm. The injured person, known as the plaintiff, will usually seek financial damages from the at-fault party, known as the defendant. Damages the injured can claim include medical bills, lost wages, mental and physical pain, and suffering, and any other cost associated with an injury. Winning a personal injury case requires proof that a.) The defendant acted in a way that was negligent and b.) Caused injury to the plaintiff that led to c.) Financial damages. In special cases, a plaintiff may also claim non-economic damages like pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury attorney must navigate the law and build a case strong enough to prove that compensation is owed.
Common personal injury claims include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Truck accidents
- Work accidents
- Wrongful death
Serious Injuries in Hanover, PA
Almost any accident can result in a serious injury. Even supposedly “minor” accidents can result in lifelong consequences, be it a fractured limb, a full-thickness burn, or chronic pain from a back injury. If an injury has the potential to affect your life years after you’ve ‘recovered,’ then you’ve suffered a serious injury. When the negligence of another person causes one of these injuries, they must provide compensation for the irreparable harm they have caused. When choosing a lawyer to seek justice for catastrophic injuries, it is essential to pick one that has a long, consistent history of winning for clients.
Examples of serious injuries include:
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Complex regional pain syndrome
- Head injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Orthopedic injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Spinal cord injuries
Why Do Personal Injury Claims Matter?
Personal injury claims are a crucial part of the justice system that allows accident victims to get justice after their life has been harmed or ruined. Though the criminal justice system punishes criminal behavior, the civil justice system restores the lives of the injured in a procedure called “making them whole.” In some cases, an injury may be permanent—these are known as serious injuries or catastrophic injuries. When a person loses physical or mental function, they suffer a loss of financial stability, incur medical debt, and face difficulties not present before they were injured. Personal injury claims seek to provide financial stability so that people with serious injuries aren’t impoverished by them.
