What is a personal injury claim?

Updated March 13, 2023.

A personal injury claim seeks compensation for injuries caused by another’s negligence. These injuries can arise out of just about any kind of situation that causes an injury. An injury might be the result of a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, work or construction site accident, defective or dangerous products, dangerous property conditions or dog bite. Perhaps you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective drug, medical device or because of negligent care and treatment by a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner or hospital. A claim could arise out of negligent care at a nursing home that results in injury, suffering or even death.
