What is personal injury?

In tort law, a personal injury is considered to be any physical, mental or emotional harm done to an individual as a result of another party’s negligence. Personal injuries do not include damage done to property. If you have been a victim of personal injury, then it is important that you take action right away against the party responsible for your pain. Victims may be awarded damages in successful personal injury cases to compensate for medical bills, property damage, and lost wages.
