What Is a Personal Injury?

We hear the phrase “personal injury” often, but what does it really mean? Simply put, a personal injury or tort is a private or civil wrong for which the court will provide a remedy in the form of an action for money damages. In other words, if you are wrongfully injured (for example, through the negligent actions of another person), you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for your damages.

Damages in personal injury claims can be economic and non-economic and may include any of the following and more:

  • Cost of medical treatment (current and future)
  • Lost income and/or wages
  • Loss of earning capacity (future income)
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress/trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment

The Chicago personal injury lawyers at Woodruff Johnson & Evans have experience in all types of personal injury cases, as well as workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability benefits claims.
