Injuries in DUI Crash

A personal injury occurs when a person suffers any kind of physical, emotional, or psychological injury. The term “personal injury” covers a wide range of cases that occur from car accidents just like what happened in the Interstate 8 hit-and-run crash, assaults, slip and fall accidents, injuries from defective products or machinery, and some more cases.

When the involved individual/ suspect failed to meet their duty of care, unexpected and unnecessary personal injuries can take place.

Damages from a personal injury lawsuit range from emotional trauma, physical and mental disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, bodily injuries, and a range of financial losses.
