WHAT IS PERSONAL INJURY LAW?

Personal Injury Law is an area of law designed to protect those harmed by the negligence, recklessness, malpractice, intentional misconduct or inaction of others. Each victim can file a personal injury claim for physical injury, emotional injury, and property damages. Further, in some cases - such as those involving medical malpractice or wrongful death - the family of the injured or deceased can file suit on behalf of its loved one.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

To have a personal injury case there must be two factors present. First, you must be able to show that you have suffered an injury. This can be a physical or an emotional injury. Second, you must be able to show that someone else (the defendant) is at fault for your injury either because of negligence, strict liability or intentional misconduct.In some cases, it may be necessary for you to show that the other party is more at fault for the injury than you are.

Negligence:Applies to an injury or accident that could have been avoided, but the defendant, person or company you have accused, failed to prevent it. An example of negligence would be if a department store left a puddle of water on the floor and you slipped, injuring your back and neck. The department store may be found negligent for failing to follow certain safety precautions.

Strict Liability:Applies to an injury caused by manufactured products that are defective. Examples would include poorly designed cars, hazardous toys, unsafe power tools, and medicines and other health care products that cause dangerous side-effects or death.
Not only is the manufacturer liable for design defects that cause injury, the merchant or distributor who sold the defective product can also be held liable in certain cases.

Intentional Misconduct:Applies to injuries intentionally caused by another’s intentional actions as opposed to negligence or carelessness. Example of an intentional misconduct includes battery or assault (being hit or being threatened with physical violence) false imprisonment, invasion of privacy, and trespass. Also, defamation is usually considered an intentional misconduct, because the defendant intentionally prints or speaks the defamatory statement.

HOW DO I PROCEED WITH MY PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

If you are thinking about filing a personal injury claim, it would be advisable to find a personal injury lawyer who has the legal expertise, experience, and skill needed to help you build your case and win the compensation you deserve. However, be aware of the “statute of limitations laws” in place in your state. Every personal injury claim must be filed within a certain amount of time or it will expire. If a claim expires, it will be barred forever and you will lose your chance to collect compensation.
