Personal injury cases are civil cases in which individuals try to obtain compensation for injuries they have sustained, usually as a result of the negligence, lack of care or recklessness of others. Some personal injury cases, such as assault & battery, may also be considered criminal acts. In such cases, a separate proceeding will take place to deal with the criminal aspect of the incident.
There need not be a physical disability in order to file a personal injury claim. Personal Injury claims can be filed for emotional or mental damages sustained as well. The amount of the the personal injury settlement will depend on the seriousness of the injury.
