Personal Injuries can happen from many different sources, they can be caused froom an intentional act, the negligent production of dangerous prescription drugs, or even from tainted food. When you become injured due to someone else's act, and there is another party to blame, you may have a claim for Personal Injury.


The term that refers to the monetary compensation the plaintiff is claiming the defendant is liable for is Damage.

These damages are intended to make the injured party "whole," according to legal theory. In some cases, the plaintiff may seek punitive damages on top of compensatory damages to punish the defendant for particularly unconscionable acts.


If you have been injured, make sure to get medical attention as soon as possible. Another point to consider, is order to build a strong case in court, you should report in details everything about the incident, take photos, and get contact information of potential witnesses.
