Personal Injuries occur all the time. More often than not, a personal injury is caused as a result of negligence, be it on the part of the injured person or someone else. When a personal injury is caused by the negligence of someone else, the injured party may be eligible to receive compensation through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit.
