Personal Injury Lawyers
What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury refers to the area of law that
seeks to protect victims who are harmed by the failure of
another to do or not do something that causes injury. A personal
injury claim can be filed for injury incurred by an individual
either physically or mentally, and it can sometimes include
damage to property.
Liability and Damages
There are two basic elements in every personal
injury case: liability and damages. You must prove before you
can recover damages that the other person was negligent. Once
you resolve that issue the amount of damages becomes important.
Grounds of Personal Injury Claims
Liability and damages can be established on
- Negligence - When a case is filed for the failure or
omission of another we call that a tort. This is where the
defendant is accused of causing the injury by failing to
prevent it. An example would be an accusation that a property
owner failed to clear ice off a sidewalk. Another example
would be someone who was speeding and caused an accident.
- Intentional Wrong - Intentional wrongs can sometimes be
brought as civil, personal injury claims apart from any
criminal charges the defendant may be facing.
