Personal injury is a very broad legal term; it includes narrowly focused areas of a legal practice, such as medical malpractice (by a physician who breaches a standard of care) to types of cases that are common place, such as slip and fall cases and auto accidents. The key in all areas of personal injury is some type of negligence by an actor or agent falls below the accepted norms of our society or basic common sense.
What constitutes a “personal injury” is changing every day, with school bullying being a new area of personal injury. Unfortunately, many people who have been wronged do not understand they may have a legal remedy and ability to recover money damages. This makes them wait. But sometimes much of the key evidence for recovery in any personal injury case is lost shortly after the fact, such as the vehicle totaled in an accident, which is the sold or destroyed before it can be inspected for the litigation, or a key witness disappears.
While it may seem obvious that you should be compensated, the things you can be compensated for, if not carefully tracked, will be lost over time and weaken recovery in your case. Therefore, if you believe you have a personal injury case, you should consult with counsel at once.
