Examples of Bodily Injury in Georgia State Law
Bodily injury is a broad legal term that includes all types of physical injuries. United States law gives a list of examples, and Georgia state law does not specifically restrict or modify these examples; the term is used in more or less the same way in Georgia. These examples include:
- Cuts, abrasions, and bruises
- Burns and disfigurement
- Physical pain
- Illness or medical conditions
- Impairment to any party of the body, including internal organs, arms and legs, and even the brain
- Any other kind of physical injury to the body, even if it’s temporary
What legal rights do I have if I suffered a bodily injury?
Depending on how it happened, you may be able to recover money. In fact, if your injury was caused by the negligence of another person, you may have a legal right to recover 100% of your costs and losses, as well as substantial additional money for pain and suffering. In many cases this is far more money than you might expect. But it helps to have a good lawyer on your side.
