Personal Injury Attorneys serving Spartanburg & Greenville SC
What is a personal injury and what does a “South Carolina personal injury lawsuit” refer to?
A personal injury is an injury to a person’s body, mind, or emotions.
A personal injury is simply an injury to a person’s body, mind, or emotions, as opposed to an injury to a person’s property. But personal injuries are often far from “simple.” Personal injuries may be complex, compounded by other injuries, and long-lasting.
A personal injury lawsuit is a lawsuit brought by an injured person to recover compensation for the person’s injuries. If another individual, business, or entity caused the injury through carelessness or recklessness, the injured person may be able to hold the responsible party financially liable.
What causes a personal injury?
A person can get injured in many situations. Common personal injury situations for which liability may attach include: car accidents; tractor-trailer accidents; bike accidents; motorcycle accidents; pedestrian accidents; slip and fall accidents; dog bites; accidents caused by unsafe property conditions; amusement park accidents; boat accidents; and accidents caused by defective products, including prescription drugs.
In a nutshell, when another individual, business, or entity acts (or fails to act) and that act or failure to act causes harm to another, the victim has suffered a personal injury.
What types of injuries fall under the “personal injury” category?
A personal injury may include: head injuries; brain injuries; broken bones; burns; cuts and lacerations; internal injuries; emotional distress; and mental anguish.
