What is a Personal Injury?

Personal injury is the legal term for an injury sustained by a person, as opposed to property. Liability is a large factor in personal injury cases, and the laws surrounding these situations can be quite tricky. Because of this, we have answered for you some common questions we get about personal injury law in Towson, MD:

Q: Does personal injury only include physical bodily injuries?

A: An injury is actually classified as a personal injury if it has been sustained by:

  • the body
  • the mind
  • the emotions

Q: What is negligence?

A: Negligence, commonly cited in personal injury cases, is the failure to take proper care when doing something. When someone is careless or neglectful, they can often endanger the safety of others. If your safety was endangered by the negligence of another person and you became injured because of it, Albers & Associates can help.

Q: How does liability factor into personal injury cases?

A: If you have sustained an injury and want to seek compensation or damages, you and your lawyer must be able to establish and prove the liability of another party. If the judge agrees that the party you intend to seek damages from is wholly lawfully liable for your injury, your chances of success in getting what you seek are high.

Q: What compensation can I seek after I suffer a personal injury?

A: There are a few different categories of damages you may seek when pursuing a personal injury claim.

Monetary Damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical care
  • Loss of earnings (or future earnings)
  • Household expenses
  • Costs associated with altered plans

Non-Monetary Damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship or consortium

Wrongful Death Damages:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial expenses
  • Loss of financial contribution
  • Pre-death medical care costs
  • Emotional distress of surviving loved ones
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
