What is an injury?
Injuries happen every day. Every scratch, bump, bruise, cut, broken bone, or other form of damage to the body or mind constitutes an injury. Injuries can happen purely by chance, being no one’s fault. Other injuries, however, are caused by the negligence, recklessness, or ill-intent of others.
What kind of injury is entitled to compensation?
Injuries that are the result of the negligence, recklessness, or ill-intent of another party may be entitled to compensation. Compensation is based on the financial burden, emotional distress, and any future difficulties caused by the injury. It can come in the form of cash or some other form of support.
