A personal injury case refers to a legal dispute that results when an individual suffers harm or sustains an injury from an accident that someone else may be legally responsible for. Such cases are often caused by the carelessness or negligence of another. In some instances, multiple parties may be responsible, and so the victim may choose to sue all involved parties to recover the full amount of both economic and non-economic compensation needed for his or her injuries.
