Key Terms in Personal Injury Law
If you have suffered an injury due to the fault of another, you may have a personal injury claim for compensation for the damages you have incurred. The injuries may be to you or your property, or you may bring a claim on behalf of a loved one who was injured or who has died as a result of the accident.
Personal injury law can encompass a vast number of different injuries and causes of those injuries. We provide a glossary of key personal injury terms for your convenience.

What to Expect in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
To have a personal injury claim, you (or a loved one) must have been injured due to the negligence of another. Injuries are often physical in nature, but they do not have to be; some injuries are emotional. The type and cause of injury may vary greatly depending on the circumstances of your case. In such a claim, the plaintiff (the injured person) must determine who is responsible for the injuries suffered, establish that person’s negligence, and show the court the type and amount of losses incurred in order to be awarded compensation for injuries.
