What You Need To Know About Personal Injury

A situation that we don't want to be a part of or we get involved with is to get involved in any form of accident or injury. 

When a person suffers harm from an accident or an injury and involves two or more parties in which they might be legally responsible for it, a legal dispute can be brought upon it, this can be called a personal injury case. 

Let define the term "Personal injury", "a legal term that brought about an injury to the body, mind, and emotion." This excludes the property damages that resulted in the cause of the accident. The very common types of personal injury that can lead and eventually makes you want to file a lawsuit are as follows: road accidents, accidents due to product defects, work-related accidents and tripping accidents

In cases such as work-related accidents, as an employee, you should be equipped with the facilities and hazardous related side of your work area, in event of any accidents you and your team would know what to do. If there are any seminars being conducted in your work station, attend and learn and basics of it. This is how the employee can prevent and secure themselves from the possible and mishap that can happen at work. 

Filing a case to the company or a third-party involved in relation to personal injury, the complainant can file their case personally and proceed to the required process of monetary claims, do all the leg-work needed. Although, in general things can be facilitated by legal experts for a speed-up and technically applied process of claiming. Expect a more tedious and can cause an added burden to the complainant.
The number one rule in processing your personal injury claim is to educate yourself. If you have that enough time to do so, you can proceed with the steps needed such as; 

  • building your case
  • future damages 
  • a lot of patience
  • prepare your medical history
  • making a plan
  • preparation with all the documents
  • monetary settlement
  • court settlement

To spare you the complainant in regards to legal equity between party involved, one can consult a personal injury attorneyThere are a lot of legal companies that can cater to a specific kind of personal injury cases. 

In the recent news regarding a local veteran actor in the Philippines who was shooting a film and suddenly collapsed in the set. The initial report was a heart attack due to possible heat stroke. This was the first report made, a few hours later video clips surfaced the social media sites showing that the veteran actor wire-tripped while doing the scene. 

The actor is the one in the screen captured photo, his left foot was in the wire on the floor leading to the actor to fall on the concrete. The videos showed the people in the set rushed towards him and gave him assistance, lifting him to rush him to the hospital. He was transferred to another hospital and there made an official medical statement that the actor did not endure heart attack or brain aneurysm, it was a cervical fracture due to the trip and fall. He is now on critical care and in deep sleep. 

We don't ever wish to have any form of an accident as it can hamper your health and well-being. 

Do you have any other ideas on how to go about with personal injury claims? 


  1. This is a really interesting post, I have to admit I know little about personal injury and what you should do, so this was a great read.

  2. The one time I had a claim it was my attorney who made sure that everything was taken care of. All I had to do was survive physical therapy.

  3. Many people doesn't understand insurance and the importance of having it. Thanks for making awareness as some times is very confusing.


  4. A blog post attentive beyond interesting way to shed light on an important topic!

  5. I was involved in a car accident in which the other party should not have been driving. I ended up with hefty medical bills as well as a cracked sternum. I was lucky to have an attorney take care of everything for me.

  6. Luckily I have never been through anything like it and hopefully, I never will. Your life completely changes when you have an accident.

  7. I never really had to file one here in Japan. Not yet but I think I get workers comp if I do.

  8. That's good there was a video for the actor and the actor's family to know what was going on for sure. It's better to know than guess, even though it was bad news.

  9. Very informative! I had a catastrophic fall last year at a Disney park ad never got a nickel. Maybe I should have read this sooner!
