What is a personal injury?
A personal injury--in the legal sense--is a physical or mental harm that occurs to a person as a result of another's negligence or wrongdoing. The most common injuries are those to the spine like cervical and lumbar sprains/strains, disc bulges, and disc herniations; and usually occur in car accidents or accidents in the workplace. If the wrongdoer is determined to be fault, then the person who was harmed may be compensated for the harms and losses caused by the wrongdoer.
