Any personal injury that disrupts your life, whether it costs you money, saddles you with medical debt, or causes you lasting health issues.
This is a question of degree. Any personal injury that disrupts your life costs you money, saddles you with medical bills, causes you lasting pain and suffering, creates physical or mental disability, or puts you out of work is a serious personal injury. Often, those who suffer a serious personal injury are unaware of what their case may be worth or how to maximize their settlement. If this is something you have questions about, you should speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
