Types of Personal Injuries

Personal Injuries Near You


You have no doubt heard the term “personal injury” many times. However, do you really know what it means? A personal injury is any injury of the body, mind, or emotions as opposed to property damage. These include claims due to physical injuries, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.


Personal injury claims in Chicago, as well as other locations, are the result of motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, falling, defective products, and accidents in the home. Medical and dental malpractice lawsuits are also considered personal injury claims. Within these broad categories, there are other types of claims which are also considered personal injuries.


For instance, a workplace accident may be an acute injury that occurs due to hazardous conditions on a construction site, or it may be classified as an “industrial disease case.” Industrial disease cases encompass occupational deafness, mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure, occupational stress, lung diseases including bronchitis, repetitive strain injury cases, and other chronic and debilitating conditions caused by unsafe work environments.


When to Reach Out to an Experienced Injury Attorney


Medical malpractice, defective products, automobile accidents, and workplace hazards cause thousands of personal injuries every year. Many of these are indeed minor and heal easily and completely.
