Personal Injury Law:
Personal injury is a legal term referring to an area of law which allows you to get legal remedy for all the damages you incurred in an accident, if there was someone else responsible for the accident and resulting losses. A party could be negligent regarding an injury of the body, mind or even emotions. Common examples of personal injury include car accidents, slip and fall incidents and medical malpractice. A tort action claim involves a private plaintiff seeking compensation for the damage caused by the defendant’s actions.
Personal Injury Law:
The development of personal injury law has taken place through state statutes and court decisions. Certain damages are easy to calculate such as property damage or medical bills. However, other losses such as pain and suffering and loss of earning capacity frequently require expert testimony.
A personal injury lawyer provides legal representation to those who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful acts of another person, company, government agency, or other entity.
Personal injury claims can include negligence based on car accidents due to a drunk driver and/or medical complications due to practitioner’s carelessness. In each of these cases, the responsible party ignored the risk posed to others and caused harm to plaintiff.
Personal injury law covers a number of cause of actions besides negligence such as when injuries are caused by defective products, this is called products liability.
How do you make a personal injury claim: If you decide to protect your legal rights after an accident you may have several questions about your case. After a car accident, fall, slip or any other type of personal injury accident case you have the legal right to pursue compensation for your injuries through the court system. There is usually an insurance policy to cover your losses. Personal injury claims are required to be brought within a specified amount of time from the time of the incident. This requirement is called the statute of limitations.
Personal injury case can be formalized through civil court proceedings.
Formal Lawsuit: A formal injury case typically starts when a plaintiff, (a private individual), files a complaint against a defendant, (person, company, government agency or corporation) because of their act of negligence which caused harm.
Informal Settlement: Most disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed. This settlement usually requires extensive negotiation, followed by a written agreement.
