What Is “Personal Injury?”

The term “personal injury” refers to damage that is done directly to an individual. The damage could be physical – such as broken bones or long-term injury – or it could be emotional or even mental. In this way, it is distinguished from property damage, which is another field of law altogether.

Personal injuries are caused by the negligence of another party. Reckless driving and failure to properly maintain property are two common examples of negligence.
