Incidents that can lead to personal injury

Georgian residents may not realize just how wide the gamut of personal injuries ranges. When a person thinks of a personal injury case, they often think of things like car crashes or slip-and-fall incidents. However, many other incidents can result in a person being able to file a personal injury claim.

FindLaw has an A-Z list of personal injuries that a person can suffer from. These injuries cover a wide span of possible origins. For example, just a few include:

  • Mold
  • Accutane
  • Brain injury
  • Shopping injuries
  • Sudden infant death syndrome
  • Welding rods
  • Libel

As can be seen from this short list alone, injuries can come from a variety of places. Medications that don't work in the way that they should is one example, or medicines that have side effects that weren't warned for. Dangerous locations that lack the proper warnings can also count, such as construction zones.

Additionally, Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines personal injury as an injury to a person's body, emotions, or mind. This means it doesn't even need to be physical harm in order for a person to be able to seek compensation. For example, many people may seek compensation for emotional distress or damages after a particularly harsh incident that may have taken the life of a loved one. Car crashes and similar incidents often have multiple components as well, such as physical injuries and emotional or mental suffering.

Understanding these various different origins of personal injury cases can be crucially important. In knowing what constitutes a personal injury, it can help those who are suffering to seek compensation.
