A personal injury is any harm caused to a person, such as a broken bone, a cut, or a bruise. These injuries may result from the negligent acts or omissions of another person or business entity. In Alabama, negligence is defined as the failure to exercise reasonable care or such care that a reasonably prudent person would have exercised in the same or similar circumstances. If a personal injury results from the negligent acts or omissions of another then you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Compensation may consist of money for medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, permanent injury or disfigurement, and loss of income or ability to earn. The amount of compensation is determined by nature of your injury and the circumstances of the incident.
Claims for personal injury may arise from automobile or truck wrecks, product defects, medical malpractice, construction accidents, premises defects, or other circumstances. If you have suffered an injury caused by another person or business you should consult with an attorney to discuss the circumstances and whether another person or business is legally responsible (liable) to pay compensation.
