Personal injury claims can be created when a person is injured in an incident by a person or group that acts negligently or recklessly, often while violating the law in some manner. If you were hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s actions or even targeted by violence, you may have a personal injury claim.
Common personal injury accidents include auto accidents, slip-and-falls, dog bites, medical malpractice and being harmed by a defective product. It may be obvious that your incident allows for a personal injury claim, or you may not be fully aware of whether it qualifies. Speaking with an attorney and collecting evidence concerning the incident will help you to better determine if you have a claim.
