What Is a Personal Injury?

The term, “personal injury” refers to a field of law that applies after accidents and injuries that involve negligence. Also called “tort law,” this field uses monetary compensation, or “damages,” to help victims recover from acts or omissions that give rise to injury or harm.

The person who files a personal injury lawsuit is called a “plaintiff,” and the person or party that allegedly caused the harm is called a “defendant.” Insurance companies and their lawyers work for the defendant, so plaintiffs must hire personal injury lawyers.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

According to the American Bar Association, automobile accidents are the area in which most personal injury actions arise.

Automobile accidents include:

  • Car accidents – accidents that involve one or more passenger vehicles.
  • Truck accidents – accidents that involve semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles.
  • Motorcycle accidents – accidents that involve one or more motorcycles (usually collisions between motorcycles and passenger vehicles).
  • Rideshare accidents – accidents that involve Uber or Lyft drivers or take place within an Uber or Lyft.
  • Bicycle accidents – that occur when a motor vehicle hits a bicyclist.
  • Pedestrian accidents – that occur when a pedestrian gets hit by a car.

Most automobile accidents are caused by distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or other unsafe driving behaviors.

Other types of personal injury claims include:

  • Premises liability suits – filed when someone gets hurt on someone else’s property.
  • Slip and fall accidents – slips, trips, and falls that occur because of hazardous conditions on public or private property (a type of premises liability suit).

Why File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Successful personal injury lawsuits result in damages, which can offset the costs associated with your accident or injury and help secure your future.

Our New Haven personal injury lawyer at Axelrod & Associates LLC can help you recover damages for:

  • Present and future medical bills
  • The costs of rehabilitative care
  • Missed wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

In some cases, we can help you get the compensation you need for lifelong assistive care, and in others, we can help you recover damages for funeral and burial costs. While no amount of money will change what happened, having the right resources can help you move forward. Additionally, punitive damages – damages designed to punish or make an example of the defendant – can leave you with a sense of justice and help ensure that what happened to you does not happen to anyone else in the future.

As you can see, there are many reasons to file a personal injury lawsuit. There are even more reasons to hire Axelrod & Associates LLC. We fight to right wrongs, and there is no case too small, and no defendant too big.
