What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury action is a civil lawsuit that seeks to recover compensation for the harm caused, either physically, mentally, or emotionally, by another’s negligence.
Common types of personal injury cases include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, accidents resulting from dangerous conditions on a property, and injuries caused by defective or recalled medical devices.

What types of damages can I recover with a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, there are two main types of damages you may be able to recover: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are the most common type of damages and their purpose is to reimburse the injured person for expenses related to their injury, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning potential
- Cost of in-home care services and equipment
- Vocational rehabilitation
Non-economic damages relate to costs outside of the financial expense of the injury, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life/quality of life
- Loss of companionship/consortium
Another type of damages that are sometimes awarded in personal injury cases punitive damages. Their purpose is to punish the negligent party and deter them from engaging in similar conduct in the future. Since punitive damages are not intended to compensate for any loss, they are awarded sparingly—only when the circumstances call for it.
