What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

When you or a loved one has been a victim of a personal injury, it’s within your legal right to seek compensation from the negligent party. When asking, “What is a personal injury claim?” our attorneys can break down complex legal concepts into easy-to-understand terms. 

An individual, known as the plaintiff, seeks legal action against the opposing party (the defendant) that has caused harm. While personal injury claims are often made against individuals, they can also be made against businesses and organizations. 

While any action or event that leads to an injury through negligence can be considered a personal injury, some common forms of personal injuries are:

  • Automobile accidents, including from commercial trucks
  • Medical malpractice
  • Slips and falls
  • Construction accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Defective products

At the Angel Reyes – Reyes Browne Law Firm, we help victims and their families obtain compensation and justice following a personal injury. Many of our clients know they can seek compensation for medical bills and property damage. However, you can also seek compensation for what’s called “non-economic damages.”

Economic damages like medical bills and lost wages typically carry a specific monetary value. However, it’s impossible to fully put a dollar figure on pain, suffering, emotional distress, and the like. Our team comprehensively examines the details of your case and—with the experience of hundreds of successful cases worked previously—helps produce a reasonable figure calibrated to your situation and desired results.

For over 30 years, our team has rigorously fought and won cases for personal injury victims. When you contact Angel Reyes – Reyes Browne Law Firm at (469) 751-4364, you can schedule a free consultation.
