Personal injury law serves people who were injured as a result of other people's actions (whether negligent or intentional), or by the use of defective products. In New York, if you are the victim of an injury you may seek compensation from those who harmed you or from the manufacturers and/or suppliers of the defective product involved. In some cases, governmental agencies may also be held responsible and have to compensate victims for harm caused by the agencies' employees.
In addition, the relatives or personal representatives of people who suffer a "wrongful death" may also seek compensation through a personal injury claim.

Whether you were injured in a car accident or a slip-and-fall on a sidewalk, in a construction accident or by the negligence of a health care provider, your case would fit into the category of "personal injury." Through a personal injury claim, you can pursue compensation for
- medical bills (both past and future, if the need for future treatment or long-term care can be reasonably anticipated)
- pain and suffering (which may often be difficult to quantify)
- any income or wages lost as a result of the injuries
- related property losses (such as damage to a vehicle involved in a car crash).
In cases of severe injuries that lead to long-term consequences, victims may also seek compensation for resulting emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of various activities. Their spouses may also pursue claims of "loss of consortium"--i.e. the loss of companionship (or sexual relationship) that may follow a severe injury.
Personal injury law varies from state to state, and a variety of state and federal laws may apply to different types of cases--such as medical malpractice, exposure to hazardous materials, or work-related injuries.
