Any time that a person is injured due to the carelessness of another person, you have a right to file a personal injury lawsuit against that person. The purpose of this is not out of malice for the injuring party, but to gain financial compensation to cover the medical costs of the injury. That is just one reason why you SHOULD file a personal injury claim should the situation call for it and not take the passive approach of it not being a “big deal.”
The reality of dealing with medical issues is that they can become very costly very quickly. As such, the financial burden of covering medical expenses alone should be enough motivation to pursue a personal injury claim. If you win the claim, you should have enough to cover all medical expenses, thus making recovery easier. Having this off your mind not only makes financial sense, but it also relieves some stress, which should speed up the healing process.
It may sound cliche to file a personal injury claim for the “principle of it,” but there is some merit to this. Justice should be served not only for you, but against the injuring party. This sense of one “getting one’s due” is a founding idea of our legal system and should be put into practice. More importantly, it hopefully will teach a lesson to the other party not to make such careless mistakes in the future. For example, if it was distracted driving that led to an accident, perhaps the other person will be more careful of this in the future, which makes that person and everyone else on the road a little safer.
