What is PERSONAL INJURY?
“Personal injury” is a type of tort lawsuit in which the person suing (the “plaintiff”) has suffered physical, emotional or financial harm due to the actions of the person being sued (the “defendant”).
A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity.
Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics:
Three million injuries and 40,000 deaths occur every year from 5.5 million car accidents that occur annually

Construction accidents cause another 300,000 person injuries and 1,000 deaths annually
Medical mistakes take the lives of 100,000 people every year
