Personal Injury Law

What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law refers to the process of legal rectifications and defenses that are involved in civil lawsuits that are brought on due to instances of wrongful conduct. Furthermore, a “tort” is a term referencing a civil wrong that results in a claimant suffering harm or loss. The person who commits the tortious act is legally liable for the resulting damages of their actions. In contrast to criminal law, a tort proceeding does not involve government prosecution of a wrongdoer. Instead, such proceedings involve a private party plaintiff that seeks compensation for the harm caused by the defendant’s actions.

The goal of damages established in tort actions is to make the injured party “whole” through the award of financial compensation to make up for mental and physical injuries caused by the incident or accident.

Personal Injury Law includes a large scope of different causes including:

  • Negligence
  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • False Imprisonment
  • Trespassing
  • Inflicting Emotional Distress
  • Defective Products
