If you have been injured, or your rights, property or reputation have been injured either by negligence or by an intentional act of another person, then you should be compensated for your suffering by the person who caused the injury. Personal injury can result from many actions, most common: motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, and faulty products, mishaps while on someone else's property or mistakes made during medical treatment.
A wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the surviving family members of the person killed by the intentional action or negligence of another. Usually file by the decedent's spouse and children, compensation may be awarded, however they may not include any punitive damages or penalties that the decedent would have been awarded had he or she survived and fallen under the category of personal injury.
