Personal Injury

There are many factors to consider in personal injury. Personal injury cases can result in disability, particularly with regard to loss of wages. Injuries can have a large impact on an individual’s ability to work. An individual’s functional capacity, due to an injury, can be assessed in terms of the ability to work and earn income. A vocational expert can review the limitations that a disability has on an individual’s employability and wage-earning ability.

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions. It is a type of lawsuit in which the person bringing the suit has suffered harm. Personal injury lawsuits are filed against the person or entity that caused the harm through negligence. Different jurisdictions describe the damages in different ways. Damages typically include the injured person’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life.
