Personal injury is defined as an injury as one caused by another person or entity. During the holiday season, it is more common to suffer a personal injury than to receive the most-sought after present of the year.
For example, a person who attends a holiday dinner party and becomes ill because of a food-borne illness can sue the host. This is because there is a possibility that the host negligently prepared the food in a way that deviated from how a person exercising normal precautions, such as refrigerating ingredients or baking an item to a specific temperature, would have prepared it.
Yes. Holiday accidents can result in a personal injury claim. Talk to a personal injury lawyer about your legal options if you have been injured as a result of holiday activities or while visiting others during the holidays.
