Personal Injury

Personal injury is a term that applies to an injury that has taken place to an individual. It can be an injury to the mind, emotions, or body. It is commonly used in reference to a tort lawsuit stating that an individual has been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. Personal injury does not apply to injuries to property or property damage.

Attorneys who are referred to as personal injury attorneys generally represent clients who have been injured in some form.  It could be by way of any of the following types of accident or hundreds of other ways people are injured.

Automobile Accidents

Truck Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Snowmobile Accidents

Boating Accidents

Slip and Falls

Dog Bites

Wrongful Death

Construction-Related Accidents

Sports-Related or Spectator Accidents

Nursing Home Abuse or Injuries

Defective Products

Police Misconduct

The term can also be related to dental malpractice, medical malpractice, and even legal malpractice.

In a personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff’s attorney, or the injured person’s attorney, generally needs to prove that another party was negligent and that negligence caused injury to the plaintiff or injured person. Negligence is different from an intentional act or an intentional tort. An intentional act is one in which the person causing the injury meant to do so.  This would be different from “accidentally” running a red light.

Personal injury cases in Michigan have a time limit in which an injured person may file a lawsuit. Time varies depending on the person’s age and the type of injury. Therefore, it is important for you to contact an attorney as soon as possible in order to discuss your legal rights.
