What Classifies as “Personal Injury”?

Personal injury is defined as damage inflicted on a person’s body rather than their property. It can be an accident caused by someone’s negligence or an intentional act that has caused you pain, suffering, or loss of income.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injury can be classified as both a physical injury or an emotional/psychological injury due to the snowball effect of the injury sustained. Types of personal injury include:

  • Car accidents caused by a distracted driver
  • Slips and falls
  • A dog bite due to a careless pet owner
  • An injury sustained at a recreational facility (ski hill, etc)
  • Personal assault
