What is a Personal Injury Claim?
What constitutes a physical injury?
Physical injury is easier to prove in court, which is why this type of injury makes up a larger percentage of the successful cases in court. It is easier to gather evidence such as x-rays and pictures to show the physical harm done, making the case easier to win.
Assault is a common aspect of personal injury law, but is usually prosecuted along with a criminal case.
Serious physical injury is a type of injury that, in the legal world, is life-threatening, causes serious impairment, and requires medical or surgical attention in order to treat or prevent permanent impairment of the body.
