Personal injury (PI) is an umbrella term used to describe claims that arise when a person is injured by the careless or negligent acts of another, or injured by a product that is defective or dangerous.
When a person, corporation, or other entity injures someone else, they can be held accountable and responsible under the law to pay all of the damages caused by their wrongful conduct. Compensatory damages paid to the injured person attempt to put him or her back in the position he or she was in before being injured. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded, in order to punish wrongdoers, to prevent them from harming others, and to deter others who are tempted to take unnecessary risks.
