What is Personal Injury?
Physical or mental injuries each year are caused by an accident, negligence or an occupational hazard. Personal injury claims are then filed to seek compensation for any injuries that were sustained and the resulting expenses for treatment. Typically these claims involve accidents, improperly working products, incidents of assault or occupational dangers. Occupational dangers include “strain” injuries, asbestosis, emphysema and mesothelioma.
