What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a type of civil action whereby an injured person seeks to recover compensation from the person or party that caused their injuries. A personal injury claim has four elements: duty of care, breach of duty of care, causation, and damages. Essentially, a plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant should have acted towards the plaintiff in some way, failed to do so or acted negligently, and that this failure/negligence was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s harm.
A personal injury claim can arise out of many different accident types, including car accidents, truck accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, and more.

Damages Recoverable in a Personal Injury Claim
If a plaintiff is successful in their suit, they can recover damages, or monetary compensation for the harm they’ve suffered. Types of damages that are recoverable in a Mt. Vernon personal injury claim include:
Economic damages are paid to a plaintiff to compensate them for their actual out-of-pocket, monetary losses associated with an injury. For example, economic damages are paid to compensate a plaintiff for:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Property damage costs;
- Rehabilitation and therapy; and
In addition to economic damages, a victim of a personal injury can also seek damages for noneconomic damages, which are intended to compensate the plaintiff for their intangible losses, such as the value of their pain, suffering, emotional distress, diminished quality of life, etc. While economic damages are calculated based on actual monetary or economic value, noneconomic damages may be calculated in one of a number of different ways.
