What does a personal injury mean?

A personal injury occurs when someone experiences physical, mental, or emotional harm due to the negligent actions of another person. It's a term that covers a wide range of incidents in different settings, like accidents, workplace mishaps, medical errors, or intentional acts of violence.

Similar to workplace injuries, suffering a personal injury often entitles you to medical coverage and compensation at the expense of the person responsible for the damage. 

What qualifies as a personal injury?

Many conditions can qualify as a personal injury, including:


Motor vehicle accidents

Even minor car accidents, motorcycle, truck, or pedestrian accidents can lead to lasting injuries that diminish your mobility, range of motion, and quality of life. At 380 Chiropractic & Wellness, the team specializes in treating whiplash, ligament sprains, and other auto accident injuries.



If you slip, trip, or fall on someone else's property due to hazardous conditions, such as slippery floors or uneven surfaces that should have been addressed earlier, you may be entitled to medical coverage at their expense.


Workplace accidents

Workplace and personal injuries often overlap. If someone other than your employer is responsible for your injury, the accident may fall under personal injury coverage. 


Medical malpractice

Misdiagnosis, medication errors, and surgical mistakes typically entitle you to personal injury coverage and treatment.

How soon should I seek treatment for a personal injury?

Seek treatment for personal injuries right away to ensure the best physical, emotional, and financial outcomes. Waiting too long to address your injury may hurt your case if you plan to file a personal injury claim. It can also lead to serious complications, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Delayed diagnosis and treatment
  • Aggravated injury
  • Poor mobility and range of motion

Prompt medical attention also helps to establish a clear timeline of when and how your injury occurred, which can strengthen your insurance claim’s legitimacy.
