What is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a legal term that refers to an injury to the body, the mind, or emotions, as opposed to an injury to personal property. While a personal injury lawsuit may also involve damaged personal property, it is the personal injury that requires the use of a personal injury attorney.

The most common type of personal injury accidents are traffic accidents. Other personal injury claims can arise from workplace injuries, accidents in the home, assault claims, medical malpractice, or any number of other incidents.

If you are injured, the most important thing to do is to seek medical attention for your injuries. Once you’ve done that, the second thing you should do is consult with a personal injury attorney. An attorney will help you determine if you have cause for a lawsuit against an individual or a company, and help you get the justice you deserve.

Personal injury cases are often won or lost based on the definition of negligence. If it can be proven that an injury was caused due to the negligence of another, the victim may be entitled to monetary compensation. That compensation might cover medical bills, lost work, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Monetary compensation for an injury claim is most often based on the severity of the injury and the extent of the negligence, but many other factors come into play.

If you have been injured in an accident or as the result of negligence on part of someone else, seek the advice of an Atlanta personal injury attorney. David M. Van Sant works with clients who have been injured, and he works hard to ensure that due compensation is received. For more information, contact David Van Sant today.
