What is Personal Injury?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, says in a report that it uses the word “accident” to mean “an unintentional injury death or an unintentional nonfatal event.” The CDC goes on to say, “The word is used sparingly because of its history of being considered by some to be inappropriate to describe events that are preventable.” Indeed, not every event that results in personal injury or death is an accident. Many are the product of recklessness or negligence; some are intentional. Personal injuries are often preventable. When a person suffers pain and loss because of another party’s improper action (recklessness) or lack of action (negligence), the injured person should be compensated for the expenses and pain their injury causes.
Personal Injury Claims in Georgia
The statistics for personal injuries in the United States are staggering. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta says that in 2010 there were 42.4 million visits to emergency rooms for injuries. When visits to physician offices, hospital outpatient and emergency departments for injuries are combined, the annual number of injuries jumps to 80 million.
Personal injuries happen every day and in every situation – on the road, at work, at home, and in the hospital, grocery store or shopping mall. An accident can result in a variety of catastrophic injuries, including, but certainly not limited to, neck, back or spinal cord injury; traumatic brain injury (TBI); paralysis; severe burns; or loss of limb(s), i.e., amputation. What some don’t realize is that the injury a person suffers produces not just physical harm, but psychological and financial injury as well. Recovery from a serious personal injury is a trial of pain, suffering and expenses. An injured person might recover over a period of weeks, months or longer while not being able to work to pay for such expenses as primary medical care, medicine, therapy and rehabilitation, in-home care, a wheelchair, and property damage, such as to repair or replace a car after a wreck.
