Injuries caused by third parties, such as: pedestrian, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or auto accidents, are compensable under state law. The injury may even have been caused by a defect or something dangerous on another person’s property. In a very broad sense personal injury refers to any injury, hurt, or damage to the body of a person, such as whiplash, broken limbs, or more serious injuries and death, as distinguished from an injury to the person’s property or reputation. The phrase “personal injury” is chiefly used in connection with actions of tort for negligence. Bignault & Carter attorneys have extensive experience representing individuals in these types of claims.
