What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is any type of physical injury that is caused by someone else’s negligence. Negligence is a legal term that means a lot more than “blame” or “fault.” In order to qualify as negligence, there are several things that must be proven:

  • The defendant had a responsibility to you. Most people have little to no connection to each other, but there are instances in which a stranger may owe you a legal duty. For instance, a business owner has certain responsibilities to patrons, such as keeping a safe and hazard-free environment and warning the public of known or hidden dangers. Likewise, we all owe each other specific duties when driving, such as watching the road, not violating traffic laws, and not driving while impaired.
  • The defendant violated his or her duties. Next, you must show that the defendant did something (or failed to do something), which directly violated his or her obligations to you. In a DUI crash, this is usually quite clear, but in most cases, it will not be so straightforward.
  • The violation caused your injuries. It is not enough to show the defendant did something wrong and caused an incident or car crash. This is just part of it. Next, you must show that your specific injuries were directly caused by the incident.
  • Damages. Finally, if you can show all the above elements of negligence, you still must prove the damages or losses you sustained.
