The term ‘personal injury’ is a legal term that has many possible definitions. In the simplest language, a personal injury includes any harm or injury to one’s physical body and/or mental or emotional status.
In the legal context, the harm suffered from a personal injury is often the result of the action and/or inaction of someone or something, such as products or premises liability. If you can prove your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligent actions or inactions, you may be entitled to damages. What specific damages and how to calculate those damages (as in the ‘value’ of the personal injury claim) are extremely case-specific and should be discussed with a knowledgeable San Diego personal injury attorney like the Benner Law Firm.
If you have suffered an injury due to the actions or negligence of another party, you have the right to take legal action to pursue fair financial compensation to pay your medical bills, cover for lost wages, and more. Benner Law Firm serves the needs of clients in Chula Vista, Escondido, Oceanside, El Cajon, and the greater San Diego, California area.
Perhaps the most common types of personal injury claims are automobile, trucking, or motorcycle accidents; fortunately, Benner is also a trained car accident lawyer. However, many personal injury attorneys in San Diego often cover claims that also involve slip and fall accidents, accidents at work, accidents occurring due to a defective product, and/or deliberate actions taken by others, such as an assault. Finally, personal injury claims also include claims for medical accidents and industrial diseases, commonly referred to as a toxic tort claim.
The best way to find out if your particular injury is actionable in the context of a lawsuit is to contact a San Diego personal injury attorney who will listen to your story and give you the answers you need.
