Damage to your body, mind or property from an accident is a personal injury. In California, personal injuries can often result from vehicular accidents, defective products, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents — any of these may also lead to a wrongful death. To win a California personal injury case, the person who caused the injury must generally be found legally responsible and negligent — or “at fault” — because he or she failed to exercise the appropriate amount of care under the circumstances.
