What is personal injury law?
Personal injury law involves injury which is caused accidentally by another's failure to use reasonable care. The definition of reasonable care is determined on a case-by-case basis. A person may be liable for the injury caused through negligent or reckless action. The injury to the plaintiff must be caused by and be a foreseeable result of the defendant's action.
When can I recover for injuries I suffered?
If you are injured through no fault of your own but by someone else's negligence, the law entitles you to recover various types of damages. The types of damages the injured party may recover include: loss of earnings capacity, pain and suffering, death, property damage, damage to marital relationships, and reasonable medical expenses. They include both present and future expected losses. Some of the defenses to liability for personal injury include intervening causes, pre-existing condition, statute of limitations, contributory negligence, and assumption of the risk.
