What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury means injury to a person as opposed to injury to property. It is a term that covers many kinds of injury from a ligament strain to a fatality. It can be caused by a car or truck accident, falling down, a medical mistake or any other kind of incident in which you are injured. Not every injury requires a lawyer, though. Typically, a person who has been injured seeks out the services of a lawyer when he or she has been injured due to someone else’s wrongdoing.
