What is a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury claim is a type of civil action that is filed when the negligence of one party leads to the harm and damages of another. There are four elements of a personal injury claim:

Duty

You must be able to prove that the defendant in the case owed you a duty of care;

Breach of duty

You must be able to prove that the defendant breach the duty of care owed to you, usually as a result of negligence;

Causation

You’ll have to prove that the breach of duty (negligence) was the proximate cause of your injuries; and

Damages

Even if you can prove duty, breach of duty, and causation, if you didn’t suffer any actual damages, you won’t have a case. 

By filing a personal injury claim, you can recover damages—monetary compensation—from the at-fault party.

When Can I File a Lawsuit?

You maintain the right to file a lawsuit when the four elements above have been satisfied. However, in most cases, claims are settled out of court through settlement negotiations without ever going to trial. If you have been injured in an accident that you believe was caused by the fault of another party, you can bring forth a personal injury claim. Examples of accident types that commonly result in personal injury claims include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents

Damages Recoverable

If you are able to prove that your injuries would not have occurred but for the negligent actions of the other party, you can seek both economic and non-economic damages. Types of damages recoverable in a personal injury claim include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future lost wages
  • Property damages expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Any other economic or noneconomic losses suffered
