What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim demands that the person responsible for the claimant’s injuries compensate them for the losses they suffered. While the liable party cannot undo the harm they caused you, they can mitigate its effects financially. Though a claim may eventually go to court, there are no criminal consequences for the defendant.

To recover compensation in a personal injury claim, you must generally show that it is more likely than not that the defendant acted negligently and caused your injury. Negligence means the defendant failed to behave in a reasonably prudent way and consequently caused you to suffer harm.
