ORLANDO, FL, January 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Any harm to your body or mind may be considered a personal injury. From bruises and broken bones to disabling brain injuries, personal injury has various severities. Injuries may also be less apparent and obvious, such as extreme mental anguish and emotional suffering caused by a bodily injury. No matter what type of injury you suffered, if it has affected your life and was caused by someone else's carelessness, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to pursue compensation for your injury-related expenses.
The only way to know if you have an injury that calls for a personal injury claim is to contact an attorney. If your injury was caused by someone else, you may be able to pursue compensation for the expense of your injury.
Examples of Personal Injury
Various types of personal injury can result when someone behaves carelessly and causes an accident. Whether at your job, in your car, in an unsafe building or in another situation, possible personal injury includes:
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck injury
- Traumatic brain injury
Many different incidents can lead to these types of injury. Anytime someone is negligent in fulfilling a duty to exercise care, the grounds for a personal injury claim are present. For example, a person who drives drunk is carelessly shirking his or her responsibilities as a driver. When you are injured as a result of this carelessness, you can pursue compensation for your related expenses by making a personal injury claim.
Causes of Personal Injury
Personal injury can result from many different types of accidents and incidents. They can be caused by another person, a group of people, a business, a corporation or even a municipal government. Personal injury often stems from:
- Car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Dog bites
- Construction site accidents
- Defective products
- Unsafe premises
- Dangerous drugs
These situations and many others can lead to life-altering personal injuries. Disability or lifelong pain can severely affect your day-to-day life.
Most personal injuries are quite serious. They may cost you a great deal, in terms of medical expenses and time away from work. These types of injuries are the ones attorneys handle claims for. If someone also caused the injury because of negligence, they may be held responsible for you injury if you file a claim with an attorney.
