What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

Defining "Personal Injury" in Dallas

"Personal injury" is any bodily harm or property damage that a person suffers because of someone else's negligence, recklessness, or intentional behavior. You basically have a case for personal injury if you have suffered any physical, financial, or emotional damages because of an accident that was caused by someone else.

Liability is very important in personal injury cases. Not only do you have to prove that someone else was responsible for your accident, but that you were not responsible for your accident in any way. If you were even partly responsible for causing your accident, your claim will not be successful. The person that caused your accident is the liable party, meaning that you can recover compensation from them to cover your damages.

Types of Personal Injury Damages

Personal injury claims require damages such as:

  • Bodily harm
  • Medical bills
  • Property repairs / replacement
  • Emotional damages
  • Wrongful death

If you or someone you know has suffered these types of damages because someone else caused an accident, then a personal injury claim could help them to obtain the necessary compensation. Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP can provide a Dallas personal injury lawyer to assist with your case so that you receive the amount of compensation that you deserve.
