What is a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases arise when one person is injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another. These cases are civil matters, meaning the liable party is not typically charged with a crime, but can still be held accountable for the victim’s damages.

Here are some common types of personal injury cases:

  • Car Accidents: These are among the most common types of personal injury cases. They occur when one or more drivers' negligence leads to an accident resulting in injuries to passengers, pedestrians, or other motorists.
  • Truck Accidents: These cases involve collisions or accidents caused by commercial trucks, such as tractor-trailers, delivery trucks, or tanker trucks. Due to their size and weight, truck accidents often result in severe injuries or fatalities.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle accidents occur when motorcycles collide with other vehicles, pedestrians, or objects on the road. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to serious injuries due to the lack of protective barriers.
  • Premises Liability: Premises liability cases arise when injuries occur on someone else's property due to unsafe conditions. This can include slip and fall accidents, inadequate security leading to assaults, swimming pool accidents, or accidents in amusement parks.
  • Product Liability: Product liability cases arise when a defective or dangerous product causes injury to a consumer. This can include defective toys, malfunctioning vehicles, contaminated food products, or unsafe medications.
  • Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice cases involve injuries caused by the negligence or incompetence of healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, surgeons, or pharmacists. Examples include surgical errors, misdiagnosis, medication errors, or birth injuries.
  • Workplace Accidents: These cases involve injuries sustained while on the job due to unsafe working conditions, inadequate training, or employer negligence. Examples include falls from heights, machinery accidents, or exposure to hazardous substances.
  • Wrongful Death: Wrongful death cases occur when a person's death is caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party. Family members of the deceased may file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their loss.

What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

One of the most common questions our Salt Lake City personal injury attorneys receive is, “What is my case worth?” Unfortunately, there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer.

The value of your personal injury case will depend on a variety of factors, including the specific facts and circumstances involved, the extent of your injuries, your total damages, the at-fault party’s insurance policy, and more. In general, however, you may be entitled to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages/income
  • Property damage
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost earning capacity

Non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

The more severe your injuries and damages, the higher your settlement may be. Additionally, if you were partially at fault for the accident, your settlement may be reduced by your percentage of fault.
