A personal injury action is a lawsuit brought by an individual who has suffered physical or mental harm as the result of the willful or negligent conduct of another. Personal injuries may result from a number of different circumstances. Such injuries may have been sustained as a result of a motorized vehicle accident, such as a car accident, truck accident, bus accident, motorcycle accident, or plane crash. They may be the result of unsafe conditions on a property which lead to slip and fall injuries, trip and fall injuries, dog bites, and other animal attacks. Or they may be the result of medical negligence or a dangerous pharmaceutical drug.
The damages available to you for personal injuries caused by the negligence of another include economic damages such as past and future medical bills, lost wages, and future lost earnings potential, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, embarrassment, and depression. Punitive damages may also be available depending on the nature of the conduct at issue.
