PersanteZuroweste represents people that have been injured due to the reckless or negligent acts of another.
Personal injury or bodily injury is defined as damage or harm caused to the structure or functions of the human body by an outside force or agent. That outside force or agent can be physical or chemical. Injury can be inflicted by a piece of machinery, including motor vehicles, construction equipment, everyday objects, debris, and anything else that can cause harm to someone. The injuries can involve bruises, wounds, burns, fractures, joint dislocations, concussions, sprains, shock, amputation, or brain injury. All of these types of injuries can occur anytime, anywhere. Most bodily injury lawsuits are filed for injuries that occur at the workplace and for injuries that are sustained during a motor vehicle accident.
Bodily injury also includes injuries as a result of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is an injury resulting from the negligence of a medical professional. Medical malpractice has cost people their limbs and their lives. Bodily injury lawsuits are extremely common today.
In an injury case, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the injury was unavoidable and that it was directly caused by the actions or lack of actions taken by the defendant. People that are injured during automobile accidents or work related accidents usually file a lawsuit for medical fees, loss of limb, loss of wages due to missing work for hospital visits and emotional distress.
Personal injury can also occur when a person has their reputation destroyed or damaged because of libelous or slanderous comments made by another person. In a personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff will sue for restitution or damages. Restitution is a form of compensation. For instance, if one person made slanderous remarks about a coworker, causing that coworker to stop showing up at work out of embarrassment, then the plaintiff can sue for restitution. The restitution would be for missing pay because of missed days at work.
