Personal injury law, also recognized as tort law, is enforced to protect a you if you or your property is injured or harmed due to someone else’s actions or failure to act. There are many different instances in which personal injury law might apply:
- Accidents: Personal injury rules apply in situations where someone acts in a negligent manner, and that carelessness causes harm to another person. Examples include car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and medical malpractice to name a few.
- Intentional Acts: Personal injury laws apply in situations where a defendant’s intentional conduct causes harm to another person. An example of this is assault and battery.
- Defective Products: There are a few situations where a defendant can be found liable for injuries without any negligent or intentional wrongdoing. An example of this can include certain types of product liability claims arising from a defective product.
- Personal injury laws also apply when one person’s defamatory statement causes harm to another person’s reputation.
We recognize that personal injury laws are complex, so the sooner our attorneys begin working for you, the better chance we have to protect your legal rights and ultimately secure the best possible compensation for your case.
