FAQ's

This is the frequently asked questions (FAQ's) portion of the Personal Injury Info website. If you have a question about one of the articles on the Personal Injury Info site please check here first. Many people have the same questions so we'll try to update this page as often.

What constitutes a personal injury? I've been injured but I'm not sure if its my fault or someone else's.

There is a difference between having a personal injury and having a personal injury case. If the personal injury you received was in full or in part due to the negligence or maliciousness of another (intentional or unintentional) then you probably have a case.


What is a tort?

A tort is an injury or wrong committed to another person or property, which has a legal remedy. This injury can be an intentional tort or it can be unintentional and does not include breach of contract.


Our child received an injury during birth and has since undergone many painful and costly corrective surgeries. The hospital says they are not at fault. What do I do?

For birth injuries it is important to note that some injuries can be "natural" in that the medical staff can do everything right and the child can still be injured. Whether they are at fault or not, most times this is what the hospital will claim since it is in their best interests to do so. In a case like this it is best to consult a birth injury lawyer so that it can be determined whether the injury was "natural" or do to medical malpractice or neglect.


My brother was in the back seat of a car during an auto accident but received no injuries other than some minor bruising. Since the accident, however, his personality has changed. He's depressed, moody, irritable and forgetful. What is going on?

Even though some people in an auto accident do not receive outward physical injuries, they may still receive emotional injuries or brain injuries. Emotional injuries cover such things as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression or anxiety due to the stress of the accident. Brain trauma injuries may also be received without any outward sign of injury. The force from a car accident can cause the brain to move and hit the inside of the skull causing bruising and swelling of the brain tissue. For suspected emotional traumas a psychotherapist needs to be consulted. For a suspected brain injury a brain specialist such as a neurologist needs to be consulted. Be sure to go to your own doctors and not just the ones supplied by the insurance company.


My husband has a cancer called Mesothelioma and a friend is telling us it is because of an employer he had 30 years back. Could this be so?

If your husband worked in construction or near a construction site 30 years ago and was exposed to asbestos, this is most likely the cause. Mesothelioma, while rare, has been predominantly to asbestos inhalation.
