Individuals or their representatives may file a personal injury lawsuit when the individual has suffered a physical or emotional injury due to another party's negligence. There are several ways in which personal injuries commonly occur. Personal injuries are often the result of automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents, defective products, and medical malpractice. The reason an individual would file a personal injury lawsuit is to determine the party responsible for their injuries and compel this party to compensate them for their losses.

Victims of personal injury may face things such as:
  • lost wages
  • medical expenses
  • emotional
  • physical anguish

A personal injury attorney can provide the advice and guidance personal injury victims need to obtain the financial compensation to which they may be entitled.

Not all personal injury victims will be entitled to damages as not all party's will be legally responsible for the victim's injuries. In order to be eligible for damages, victims of personal injury must show that another party is legally responsible for his or her injuries. They may prove this by providing evidence that the other party's actions were the actual and proximate cause of their injuries. Actual causation can be proven by showing the literal cause and effect relationship of the responsible party's actions. Proximate causation will be based on the facts and circumstances surrounding the victim's injury. If the victim can prove that the responsible party's intentional, harmful actions were the cause of their injuries, they will have satisfied the proximate causation requirement. If the responsible party's actions were not intentional but negligent, it may be more difficult to prove proximate causation. For this reason, it is imperative that victims contact a personal injury attorney before filing their lawsuit.

Personal injury lawsuits as the result of negligence are a bit more complicated, but an experienced personal injury lawyer will know how to proceed with this type of case. An attorney will endeavor to provide evidence that the responsible party should have reasonably foreseen how their actions or failure to act would have created an unreasonable risk of harm to the victim and others. For example, a store owner that fails to properly warn patrons of a wet floor could be held liable for a customer's injuries if they fall and sustain an injury. Additionally, when manufacturers produce and sell faulty products and a consumer is injured by the product, the manufacturer may be held liable for the consumer's injuries. A personal injury attorney will work diligently to identify all parties responsible for the victim's injuries and ensure these parties are held accountable in a court of law.
