According to Webster’s Dictionary, the legal definition of personal injury is an injury to one’s body, mind, or emotions. In Pennsylvania, if you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, such as in a car accident, slip and fall, or other incident resulting in personal injuries, you have a right to compensation.
Kitay Law Offices has over twenty years of experience, winning thousands of cases and obtaining large settlements for its injured clients over that span. This is true for those with both physical and mental/emotional injuries. Physical injuries can include broken bones, concussions, muscle and tendon tears, spinal disc herniations, cuts, bruises, death, and many other painful injuries. Injuries to mental health can include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and many others.
Personal injuries, generally, can result from two different types of actions or inactions: negligence or intent. Negligence occurs when the at-fault person or party fails to act in the same way that a reasonable person would. Intentional acts causing personal injury can be done with the specific intent to cause harm, or even as a practical joke.
