In order to receive compensation in a personal injury case, the victim must prove that the person who caused his or her injuries was negligent. In cases of personal injury caused by workplace accidents or another incident, negligence means failing to use ordinary care, like running a red light or failing to prevent a defective product from entering the market. Any of the above forms of negligence can lead to wrongful death or personal injury.
Because most personal injury victims face emotional, physical, and financial hardships, compensation in personal injury, including workplace accidents cases, usually covers medical bills, lost wages, damage to property, and pain and suffering. There are several factors that determine how much each individual personal injury victim receives, including medical expenses and other related costs, lost income due to time away from work, long-term disability, emotional damages, and damage to property.
