Proving a Personal Injury Claim
A personal injury claim is a civil legal claim. It arises when the negligence of one party causes injury to another. It is important to note that not all accidents qualify as personal injury claims, and other accidents may not be eligible for compensation.
For example, in Texas, an injured victim must be fifty-percent or less at fault for an accident to recover damages for their injuries. This is known as modified negligence. The injured victim must also prove the following:
The other party, or defendant, owed a duty of care or safety to the victim;
The defendant breached this duty;
This breach of duty directly and proximately caused the victim’s injuries or damages; and
The victim suffered injuries and damages.
States differ in their negligence laws; therefore, it is wise to consult an experienced attorney to discuss fault and recovery in any specific state.
Common Personal Injury Claims
Common personal injury claims include car accidents, workplace injuries, slip and falls, wrongful death claims, and product liability claims. The most frequently filed personal injury claim is a car accident claim.
There were approximately six million car accidents last year, amounting to the loss of nearly thirty-nine thousand lives. Distracted driving is the number one cause of car accidents in the United States. Distracted driving is any activity that diverts a driver’s attention from the road like cell phones, GPS, passengers in the vehicle, or eating.
Workplace injuries totaled nearly three million in 2019, with sprains, strains, and tears being the most common injuries. Soreness, bruises, cuts, and fractures were among the next most cited issues. Fatalities in the workplace were over thirty-four hundred.
Slip, trip, and fall accidents lead to more than 17,000 deaths every year in the United States. The most common serious injury in slip and fall accidents is a bone fracture. The most common workers’ compensation claim is a slip and fall accident.
Wrongful death actions can result from any personal injury accident. The death may happen at the site of the injury or later as a result of accident-related injuries. Wrongful death claims are steadily rising in America.
When products consumers buy and use according to product specifications hurt them, these consumers may qualify for a product liability claim. Any number of consumer products are hazardous or defective, including some prescription drugs, children’s toys, car seats, cribs, power tools, ladders, car parts and systems, and gas grills.
Many other personal injury claims exist, including, but not limited to:
Burn accident injuries;
Spinal cord injuries;
Traumatic brain injuries; and

Personal Injury Compensation
Compensation in a personal injury case depends on a victim’s severity of injuries, the prognosis for recovery, and the overall impact of the accident on their life. One of the reasons personal injury claims exist is to ensure victims do not pay for injuries caused by the negligence of another. Compensation is either negotiated in an insurance claim settlement or awarded at a trial.
Types of compensation include:
Current and future medical bills;
Physical therapy and rehabilitation;
Loss of earning potential;
Pain and suffering;
Mental and emotional trauma;
Loss of consortium; and
Reasons for pursuing a personal injury claim go beyond compensation. A personal injury claim is a way for victims to hold negligent parties responsible for injuries they inflict, thus lending a sense of closure and justice to a difficult chapter in their lives. A wrongful death claim may ensure the deceased’s children have money for college expenses.
