What the Law Says
The law states that although negligence is the main cause for a personal injury claim, you may also have a case in other situations that result in personal injury. For example, you may have a case if your injury was a result of “strict liability” or “intentional wrongs”. In other words, you may have a case if your injury was the result of a faulty product, or even an intended practical joke. Essentially, personal injury covers any injury sustained at the hands of someone other than yourself.
