What is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim allows an accident victim to sue the person or entity responsible for their injury for any losses they suffered. These losses are dependent on the unique facts of each claim, but typically include the full cost or value of medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related expenses.
To have a legitimate personal injury claim on your hands you must:
- Have been injured at little or no fault of your own
- Be able to prove that someone else was responsible for your injury
- Show that the person or entity responsible for your injury acted negligently
- Have suffered actual damages
Once you have established the above, you can file a personal injury claim. While a lawyer is not required to do so, it is generally recommended to hire one unless you have significant legal knowledge of your own.

The Claims Process
Every personal injury claim looks different because each case is dependent on unique factors such as the extent of your injuries and the treatment required, who you are suing and how compliant they are with the proceedings, how busy the courts are, and more.
Generally, however, the personal injury claims process usually goes something like this:
- The client seeks medical attention to get a proper diagnosis and adequate treatment
- If the injuries are anything but minor, the client contacts a personal injury attorney
- The lawyer investigates the client’s claim and reviews their medical records
- The lawyer demands compensation from the at-fault party and attempts to negotiate a settlement
- If an agreement is reached, the case stops here; if not, the lawyer files a personal injury lawsuit
- The lawyer will again try to negotiate a settlement, this time with the liable party’s attorney
- If an agreement is reached, the case stops here; if not, the case goes to trial
- A judge makes the final ruling at the end of the trial
