A "personal injury" can be sustained in many situations and may involve circumstances in which a person was hurt in a motor vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle, truck, pedestrian, construction or slip-and-fall accident. Injury can also arise as the result of an animal attack or an assault by another party. When an injury is sustained as a result of a medical provider's carelessness or negligence, the circumstances are generally referred to as "medical malpractice."

If you, or someone you know has suffered a physical injury or trauma as a result of someone else's negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim. If an injured individual dies following the incident or as a result of the negligent act, that individual's family may bring a "wrongful death" claim in the name of the deceased person. Although a lawsuit cannot undo the events which have taken place, the law does permit financial compensation to be awarded to the injured individual or their family when certain conditions are satisfied.
