What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a lawsuit that an injury victim (the plaintiff) files against the individual or entity that caused their accident (the defendant). The purpose of the claim is for the defendant to award the plaintiff with financial compensation that will cover their medical expenses and other accident-related costs. Compensation is often referred to as “damages.”
While every personal injury claim is based on factors unique to each specific case, damages that are generally awarded include:
- The cost of all past and future medical expenses related to the accident, including hospitalization, surgeries, physical therapy, counseling, and necessary ongoing treatment
- Compensation for pain and suffering you endured as a result of the accident
- The reimbursement of wages lost due to missed work
- Punitive damages in the event of wrongful death
The crux of every personal injury claim is the legal concept of negligence. You (or your attorney) must be able to prove that the party responsible for your injuries was behaving recklessly or carelessly and that your accident was a direct result of this negligence. In Alabama, if you are found to be even partially at fault for your injuries, you likely will not be eligible for compensation at all. An experienced lawyer can help protect you by presenting evidence that proves the defendant’s liability.
