What Counts as a Personal Injury?

August 8th, 2022

A personal injury is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: harm done to a person. The less obvious part is that personal injuries can also cover harm that we can’t see with our eyes, like emotional injuries. Still, those types of personal injuries aren’t as common, and most people who make a personal injury claim will do so because of injuries suffered in one of the following types of accidents:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Workplace injuries

In other cases, victims may need to file a claim after an explosion, oil refinery injury, catastrophic injury, or wrongful death. These types of injuries aren’t as common as those in the list above, meaning it may be even more important for you to get help from a personal injury attorney with experience.
