What is an Injury Claim
An injury claim is a legal route for an injured plaintiff to receive compensation for someone else’s negligent or intentional acts.
The most common personal injury case are car accident cases, where one party is injured because another party was not respecting the rules of the road. Less common are medical malpractice cases, where a patient believes the doctor or other health care professional failed to provide reasonable levels of care. Other injury claims include slip and fall cases and dog bite cases.
Assault and battery can also lead to personal injury claims, as one party injures another with intent. While these cases are also criminal cases, the victim can still file a personal injury claim.
