Personal injury law is designed to protect people from the negligence of others. In successful lawsuits, compensation may be awarded to those who have suffered loss as a result of someone else’s negligent act or failure to act.
A personal injury lawsuit may be pursued where injury or harm has been caused by another person. Personal injury claims, also known as tort claims, have to address two issues—liability and damages. A personal injury attorney must prove that the defendant is liable for the damages sustained and if so, the extent of damages sustained.
If a person is injured and liability and damages can be proven, a personal injury claim could be pursued. Examples of personal injury claims include serious injury from car accidents, trucking accidents, or medical malpractice.
