Personal injury is a legal term that refers to any harm done or injury to the body, mind, emotion, and reputation of a person. Victims of personal injury usually sustain physical injuries, such as whiplash, fractures, and traumatic brain injury.
However, the law also protects victims from non-physical injuries, such as emotional distress or psychological damages (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety).
Personal injury accidents or damages usually stem from an individual’s negligence, reckless behavior, or intentional act. The legal system allows aggrieved parties to file a claim or lawsuit against individuals based on these three grounds.
