Personal injury law means injury to the body, mind, or emotions, not to property. Usually there is a lawsuit or insurance settlement to compensate someone for physical and mental suffering, including injury to the body.
Our firm deals with complex cases involving severe bodily injury — for example, if you are hit by a car and lose a limb, leaving you with a permanent injury for the rest of your life. A lawsuit in this case is to recover damages caused by the negligence or intentional wrongful act of another. A life-changing, permanent injury can be a major element in an award of general damages.
