What is a Personal Injury?

In the legal field, personal injury refers to physical, mental, or emotional injury that is inflicted upon a person. In contrast to property damage, this type of damage is injury to a person. To file a personal injury lawsuit, a person must be able to show that there are damages, meaning that the person was indeed harmed in some way.

Secondly, the damages typically must have some kind of financial impact, such as medical costs, lost wages from time off of work, or recovery costs. These are tangible financial losses that occurred as a result of the injury in question.
