What Qualifies as a Personal Injury Case?
When an individual is harmed physically or psychologically by another’s act of carelessness or intentional malice, the person hurt has a right to file a personal injury claim. The purpose of personal injury law is to make sure the injured plaintiff, or victim, can be made “whole again” by financially compensating them for their medical bills, lost wages, and general pain and suffering. There are five basic categories under which your injury could fall:
- True accidents can include anything from car crashes or medical malpractice to toxic exposure and wrongful death.
- Intentional acts fall under personal injury if someone was injured by another on purpose, including assault and battery.
- Defamation is psychological rather than physical. One’s reputation could have been harmed if someone released private information or pictures in the name of sabotage.
- Defective products, including prescription drugs, heavy machinery, or construction tools can cause serious injuries.
Under any of these circumstances, you typically have one year to file a personal injury claim. If you live in the South Houston area and believe that your injury could fall under any of these categories, continue below to discover how an experienced personal injury attorney like me can help you fight for fair compensation.
