When a person is injured due to the alleged negligence of another party, they may seek monetary compensation for their injuries through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. The only thing that a person can receive from an Arizona personal injury claim is money, even though money often cannot fix many of the problems associated with a personal injury or wrongful death. It does not heal a serious injury or permanent disability, nor does it heal the emotional trauma that comes from the death of a loved one who has been hurt or killed by the negligence of another.
While monetary compensation from a personal injury claim does not heal the hurt brought on by a serious injury, it can help pay medical expenses and help replace income lost because of an injury caused by someone else’s negligence. It is for this reason why the law allows people to seek justice through a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
This system of justice requiring monetary compensation as payment for damages is not new, nor does it originate from American or even European culture. Rather, it dates back to the ancient Hebrews, who made laws to compensate individuals for injuries or deaths caused by the actions of another. This system for dealing with the negligent actions of another ensures the possibility of justice in non-criminal matters such as those that occur in personal injury claims.
Although the information provided here is informative, a personal injury claim is often complex and deals with several other important legal and personal matters.
