What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury case arises when one person suffers an injury due to the misconduct of another person. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 100 million people seek emergency treatment for an unintentional injury every year. The negligence of others’ causes many of these injuries, and there are many types of personal injury claims.

When you sustain harm to your person, the injury may be in the form of damage to your physical person, emotional and/or mental health, or  reputation. If you or someone you care about has sustained an injury from an accident of any kind, you may be entitled to compensation. The only way to recover these losses is to pursue a legal claim. Our experienced personal injury attorneys at Walton Telken can assess the unique facts of your case to help you determine whether your injuries meet the legal definition of a personal injury.

For a no-cost, no-commitment case evaluation today, contact our office at 618-307-9880.
