OVERVIEW OF PERSONAL INJURY LAW

If you have been injured or lost a loved one because of someone else’s carelessness (negligence) or wrongdoing, you have the right, under our legal system, to pursue monetary compensation for your personal injury or loss. The injury can be physical, psychological or financial, and the responsible (negligent) party can be an individual, a business, or a government entity. Personal injury laws are designed to compensate you when you have been harmed due to someone’s carelessness.

Overview of Injuries: Common Accidents that Result in Personal Injury Lawsuits

A personal injury is an injury to a person’s body, mind or emotions (as opposed to an injury to a person’s property), and a personal injury lawsuit is a case that alleges this type of injury. Personal injury lawsuits are often filed because the defendant’s negligent behavior caused an injury to the plaintiff. The goals of a personal injury lawsuit are to identify and compel the responsible party to compensate the injured party for his or her damages. Common types of personal injury accidents include: Slip and Fall, Automobile Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Unsafe Premises and Products and Work Injuries.
