The injury might have been caused by tripping or slipping in a slippery floor of a mall or a falling object which was not secured properly. It can also be due to a malfunctioning door or a stampede in a concert.
Personal injuries may also be in form of an accident in the workplace or as a result of a traffic accident. An office clerk might have injured himself because of a chair which broke down in the office or a construction worker might have fallen from a building because of unsecured scaffolding.
It might also be possible that a worker might have been exposed to an unhealthy workplace which caused him some disease or other medical conditions. There have been cases in which company owners are negligent with their employees' welfare that they do not even provide for the basic necessities and this can become a basis for personal injury claims.
A personal injury claim can also be filed if a person sustained some injuries because of defective products.
