What does Great Bodily Harm mean?

Great bodily harm can be any serious injury or death from a car accident. The definition for great bodily harm can vary by state. In many states great bodily harm will be car accident injuries which cause severe permanent disfigurement, loss of use of an organ or loss of bodily function. Some states have instituted no-fault laws which do not allow car accident victims to file a personal injury claim unless they have suffered great bodily harm. Common severe injuries can include: traumatic brain injury, permanent disfigurement, spinal cord injuries, and death. Car accident victims who have suffered severe bodily injury should contact a car accident lawyer to determine the compensation they need to recover from their car accident injuries.
