What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit allows an injured person to recover compensation when someone else’s wrongful conduct, be it negligence or an intentional act, causes them harm. Several situations can give rise to a valid personal injury claim, but not every injury automatically results in legal liability. Some personal injury lawsuits involve permanent disability, and some of the most common types of personal injury cases are the following:

  • Car accident cases.
  • Slip and fall cases.
  • Dog Bites

Types of Compensation in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Most personal injury damages are compensatory. This means that they are intended to compensate the injured person for losses due to the accident or injury. Compensatory damages are a means of putting a dollar amount on an injury.

When compensatory damages are reimbursement for property damage and medical bills, they are easy to quantify. However, it is difficult to place a monetary value on pain and suffering or the inability to enjoy life due to physical limitations.

Compensatory damages often include:

  • Medical treatment associated with the accident, both reimbursement for treatment received, and compensation for the estimated cost of future medical care
  • Loss of income, present, and future:
    • Property lost or damaged in the accident
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of enjoyment of life or no longer being able to participate in favorite hobbies, exercise, and other recreational activities
    • Loss of consortium, this may be in the form of companionship or sexual relationships

Punitive damages are possible in a personal injury lawsuit when a defendant’s behavior is outrageously careless or despicable. Punitive damages are intended to act as a deterrent for future negligent behavior from any at-fault parties.

Never agree to a settlement before speaking with the experienced Lancaster personal injury attorneys of Pisegna & Zimmerman.
