Personal injury is the legal term for an injury to one's body, mind, or emotions. Personal Injury cases fall under tort law and are civil, not criminal, so no criminal action is taken.
Compensation is usually monetary and can include payment for loss of earnings (both current and future), pain and suffering, and reasonable cost of medical expenses.
Cases arise from automobile accidents, assaults, product defects, and slips and falls. Wrongful death cases also fall into this category.
