“Personal injury” refers to the area of law that seeks to protect victims harmed by the negligence of another person or entity. Negligence is the failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person, under the same circumstances, would have exercised. It occurs when a defendant’s conduct imposes an unreasonable risk upon another, which results in injury to that person. Once negligence has been proven, the plaintiff may recover damages, which can include:
Loss of Functioning – The Value of Any Direct Loss of Bodily Functions
Economic Damages – Out-of-Pocket Losses Stemming from the Injury
Pain & Suffering – Damages for Pain & Suffering Caused as a Result of the Injury
Hedonistic Damages – Damages for the Loss of the Ability to Enjoy One’s Prior Life
Future Damages – Any Potential Future Damages That Could Result from the Injury
