Personal injury is a broad term used to describe an injury suffered by an individual due to the negligent act or omission of another.

While the cause in fact of most well-known personal injuries are the result of auto accidents, falls or industrial and off-shore injuries and death, they also include Workers’ Compensation claims, Longshoreman & Jones Act claims, recreational boating accidents, injuries aboard cruise ships at sea and other haphazard or fortuitous injuries caused by the fault of another.
