The term personal injury is most commonly used to refer to a type of tort claim or lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff's injury has been caused by the negligence of another. Every day individuals are injured by the negligence of others. Who should pay for the damages that result from another personís negligence? The party that caused the injuries should be the person who should pay for the damages. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The most common types of personal injury claims are traffic accidents, accidents at work, slip and fall accidents and defective product accidents. If the negligence of another party can be proven to be the cause of the injury, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party. Attorneys often represent clients on a "contingency basis," in which the attorney's fee is a percentage of the plaintiff's eventual compensation, payable when the case is resolved. No fees and costs are payable to the attorney if no compensation is received.
