What is a personal injury case? The answer is both simple and complex, but basically, a personal injury case is any time someone is injured through the fault of someone else.
There are many different types of personal injury cases. They can range anywhere from an auto accident, to a dog bite, to a dangerous condition that causes an injury (for example, unmarked wet floors in a grocery store). In general, a personal injury case is any time someone is injured through the fault of someone else.
A common question I get is, if no one is injured in a car accident and only the car is damaged, does that count as a personal injury case? The answer is no. In order for it to be an injury case, someone actually has to be injured. If the only damage is to the car or other property, that’s known as a property damage case.
