  • What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is typically a physical injury to a person's body, caused by someone else's fault. In many cases, personal injuries that are caused by someone else's actions can qualify for monetary (money) compensation.

  • Who pays for the monetary compensation resulting from a personal injury?

This compensation usually comes from the at-fault person’s insurance policy. Someone who makes a personal injury claim is called a plaintiff. The person or company that harmed the plaintiff is called a defendant.
