During these lawsuits the person bringing the suit, or the “plaintiff” has suffered harm in one of the ways mentioned before. These personal injury lawsuits are often filed against a person or entity that caused the harm through negligence, gross negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct. Depending on the jurisdictions the damages can be described in different ways. Typically these include the injured person’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life. Some common examples of personal injury claims include accidents in a car, accidents at work, tripping accidents, assault claims and product defect accidents.
