Personal injury is a rather broad area of law which address what types of damages one may seek in civil litigation as a result of injuries caused due to the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of others.
When an individual is the victim of a personal injury accident or incident, the law allows you to seek compensation against the at fault party. In most cases insurance companies are involved, which are not looking out for your best interests. When insurance companies do acknowledge their policy holder is responsible for the personal injury accident or incident, without the representation of an experienced attorney or lawyer, the amount offered will most certainly be less than what your claim may actually be worth and without regard to what the full extent of your injuries may be.
When seeking compensation in a personal injury liability claim, the legal council you choose may make a significant impact on your ability to recover fair compensation to cover all damages and relevant costs as a result of your injuries.

Personal injury claims are subject to statutes of limitations which dictates the time constraints you have to file for a personal injury claim.
