The phrase "personal injury" is a term that gets used alot in the Injury accident area of law.  What the term refers to is  the physical injuries and financial losses resulting from anothers reckless, careless, or intentional behavior that has caused you damages to which you need compensation from to make you whole again. 

To get that compensation from the other person whether they be a government agency, a private person or corporation you must be able to prove certain things:

The extent of your damages

How the harm was caused

That the other party was liable

legal responsibility of the other party does not require that you prove the other person meant to injure you.  Instead negligence is usually the standard. In other words, conduct that was unsafe, and unreasonable under the circumstances.   For example speeding and causing an accident, is sufficient to show negligence.

Once you have proven that another person negligently harmed you you  can recover certain damages. 

Past and future physical pain and suffering mental anguish incidental and hospital expenses.

past and future medical, incidental, and hospital expenses

past and future lost wages and lost earning capacity and

punitive damages in cases of egregious conduct.

If a person had dies as a result of the negligent or intentional conduct of another than a "wrongful death" claim may be appropriate.  Family members may be able to seek compensation for the loss.
