Causes of Personal Injuries
As personal injuries can include physical and emotional trauma invoked by a traumatic incident, the causes of serious personal injuries can vary.
Some common Leamington personal injury causes include:
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Slips, Trips, and Falls
- Workplace Incidents
- Truck Accidents
- Dangerous Drugs
- Defective Products
- Airplane Accidents
- and more.
According to Statistics Canada about 20 percent of these injuries that required hospitalization were due to transportation incidents. Falls were overall the leading causes of injuries though, particularly among female Canadians.
Types of Personal Injury Damages
Although typically an individual may focus on actual physical injuries, many individuals will also suffer from emotional trauma caused by the incident and others face psychological trauma caused by their physical impairments.
When a personal injury claim is brought forth a person may be entitled to compensatory and non-compensatory damages.
Compensatory damages are those that may be measured by a particular dollar amount and include:
Non-compensatory damages, sometimes referred to as punitive damages, are those which do not have a monetary value, such as:
- Loss of Consortium
- Loss of Quality of Life
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress/Mental Anguish
Punitive damages are typically only available in exceptional cases and there are caps on how much a person may receive. Non-compensatory damage caps are usually based on the cause of the personal injury.
