What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury is a physical injury to a person’s body. In a legal sense, it involves injury caused by the negligence of another, or the failure to use reasonable care. What “reasonable care” means can vary depending on the circumstances. Generally, it is the level of care that a reasonable person would use under similar circumstance.
A party may be liable for injury caused to another through negligent or reckless actions. The injury suffered by the victim must be caused by, and be a foreseeable result of, the actions of the at-fault party.
