About Personal Injury and Property Damage

In legal terms, personal injury refers to any physical, mental, or emotional injury whereas property damage refers to damage or destruction of personal property as a result of negligence or willful destruction.

When someone acts negligently or recklessly and causes an accident with injuries and property damage, they may be held liable for losses associated with the accident. This means that victims can seek compensation for their injuries, both physical and emotional, and for damage to their property. 

When Might Property Damage Occur Along with an Injury?

There are many possible scenarios in which property damage can occur along with injuries. One of the most common examples are car accidents. Often in car accidents with injuries, the vehicles involved will be damaged to some extent. Damage is often greatest in accidents with more severe injuries. 

Although not as common as car accidents on the road, sometimes drivers will crash their vehicle into a home, restaurant, or other building. Such accidents can cause injuries to people inside the building and property damage to the building itself. 

Property damage may also occur in workplace injuries involving large tools and equipment whether from misuse or product defect. 

Other types of property damage that may accompany injuries include:

  • Bicycle damage
  • Motorcycle damage
  • Boat or recreational vehicle damage
  • Damage to tools or mechanical equipment

What Types of Damages Can Be Recovered?

When injuries and damage to property occur in an accident caused by someone’s negligence, it may be possible to recover financial compensation for both injuries and property damage.

Financial compensation can help injured parties get back on their feet while they recover from injuries as well as fund the replacement or repair of damaged property.  

Some losses that may be recovered through a personal injury and property damage claim include:

  • Hospital and other medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future wages if injuries make it impossible to work or to continue working in the injured party’s field
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Vehicle damage in the case of a car accident
  • Home damage if the home was damaged in the accident
