What is a Personal Injury

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. In Anglo-American jurisdictions the term is most commonly used to refer to a type of tort lawsuit in which the person bringing the suit, or "plaintiff," has suffered harm to his or her body or mind.  Thank you Wikipedia


So with this mind let's think of ways that a person can be personally injured.  How about if you are shopping at a retail store and the associate makes a comment about you? Perhaps they said you were not the type of person that would buy or wear something.  Maybe they went as far as to laugh or smirk. Would that count?


If you got into an car accident and you needed to heal from a broken bone or worse that would also be considered a personal injury but not the damage to the car. Or if you slipped and fell injuring your back or sprained your ankle, this all counts.


Would you consider hiring an Attorney like Kinney, Fernandez, & Boire P.A. for these types of things or are you a person to just let it go and try to be more careful next time.  What of the accidents are not your fault, would that make a difference in how you handle the unforeseeable outcome?  


No matter how you decide it is important to know the difference and exactly what a personal injury is and can you have a mental injury, yes it is very real.  Let's again reference Wikipedia (thank you)
 "Psychological injury" refers to psychological or psychiatric conditions associated with an event that leads, or may lead, to a lawsuit in tort action or other legal-related claims. Legally, psychological injury is considered a mental harm, suffering, damage, impairment, or dysfunction caused to a person as a direct result of some action or failure to act by some individual. The psychological injury must reach a degree of disturbance of the pre-existing psychological/ psychiatric state such that it interferes in some significant way with the individual's ability to function. If so, an individual may be able to sue for compensation/ damages.


Let me know in the comments if you have had any moments where you think it would be considered a personal injury or if you can think of ways that you consider a person to be personally injured, I would love to hear your thoughts.   I hope that no matter what love has brought you that you are having a healing and loving upcoming holiday filled with light love family and laughter. 


You deserve to feel better and be happy and live without harm or  personal injury.  If you are having a hard time know that people are out there that care and would love to talk with you so always take the time to speak up even if it is just anonymously and know that I am personally here to talk whenever you need to.
