Personal injury law allows an injured person to sue for damages for losses from an accident or other incident. If you have suffered harm in body, mind or emotional state due to someone else’s carelessness or intentional conduct, you may be eligible for compensation.
Automobile accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury claims. Others include product defect accidents, slip and fall cases, and assault claims.
Personal injury may result from any of the following:
If you are injured when someone acts in a negligent manner, you may be entitled to damages. Some examples include car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and medical malpractice.
If you are injured when someone intentionally causes you harm, you may be entitled to damages. This may be as a result of assault and battery.
Sometimes a defendant can be found liable for injuries without any negligent or intentional wrongdoing. Examples of this include product liability claims due to a defective product.
Personal injury laws apply when one person’s statement causes harm to another person’s reputation.
