Personal Injury means any injury resulting from libel, slander, malicious prosecution, or false arrest, any bodily injury, sickness, disease, or death sustained by any person and caused by an occurrence for which an individual or entity may be held liable. Any type of bodily injury as a result of an attack, negligence, and/or accident can be categorized as Personal Injury, and the injured can file a Personal Injury lawsuit to hold those responsible for the Personal Injury accountable for his/her actions. Personal Injury Law refers to the area of law that seeks to protect victims who are harmed by the action or inaction of another person or entity. Personal Injury is also sometimes referred to as tort law. A Personal Injury claim can be filed for injury incurred by an individual either physically or mentally, and it can sometimes include damage to property. Personal Injury lawyers seek to win compensation for their clients and can often do so without ever having to go to trial.
