What is a Personal Injury Case?

You probably have some questions about what goes on when a claim is filed for personal injuries, or death that has resulted from an accident.

Let’s start at the very beginning: Just what is a personal injury case? Lawyers say that they do “personal injury cases” or “accident cases” or “product liability cases” or “wrongful death cases.” Many times, folks are not really sure what this means. Indeed, people who have known me for years will come up to me and ask me for a referral to a car accident attorney! They do this even though I think that they know exactly what it is that I do. So, a personal injury case describes the type of harm that was caused. A wrongful death suit is a personal injury that has resulted in death. Further, in personal injury cases, there are many different situations, and circumstances which cause harm such as cars, trucks, products, explosion, and premises. These are still personal injury cases which are handled by lawyers who specialize in personal injuries. A board certified lawyer in personal injury law should be qualified to handle all of these cases.
