You may be thinking about what your choices are if you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Injuries can be severe, and if you’ve lost money due to medical costs or been unable to work (lost wages) as a result of someone else’s negligence, you probably have a personal injury case and can claim compensation. You should not have to pay for the medical bills and damages out of pocket.

A personal injury claim is a difficult procedure to evaluate, and the result is determined by the facts of the case. Here are some things to keep in mind if you want to file a personal injury claim.

You may have a personal injury case if you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, in part or in full. Negligence is characterized as a failure to exercise reasonable caution. You could have a personal injury lawsuit if you were injured when someone else refused to use reasonable treatment. A personal injury case was filed against the individual or organization that is entirely or partly to blame for your injury.

If you were hurt at work, you might be eligible for workers’ compensation. Your employer’s insurance covers workers’ compensation. Worker’s compensation is designed to compensate an injured worker for a portion of his or her missed earnings as well as to cover any fair and appropriate medical care related to the job injury. Personal injury claims vary from workers’ compensation cases in that they are designed to compensate you for all of your medical costs, missed earnings, and pain and suffering.

  • Slip and Fall: If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, the property owner could be held responsible for the injury if the property was not kept in a reasonably safe condition.
