First Call Legal is here to help you with a litany of legal issues that you may have to deal with. Of the most common calls that we get from potential clients is that of personal injury. You probably know what personal injury is, but let’s take it a step further and dig in to see exactly what it is from a “legal” standpoint.
Personal injury law, which in legal circles is also known as “tort” law, allows for the injured to file a civil lawsuit in court and try to collect damages for all losses stemming from an accident. The purpose of the personal injury system is to allow the injured person to be compensated financially after he or she has suffered harm due to someone else’s negligent or intentional conduct.
There are actually a wide variety of different situations where personal injury rules apply. More than likely, if you have a personal injury situation, it falls under one of these four categories.
- Accidents – Personal injury rules apply in situations where someone acts in a negligent manner, and that carelessness causes harm to another person. Examples include car accidents, slip & falls, and medical malpractice, among other types of cases.
- Defective Products – When a consumer product like a vehicle component, medical device, pharmaceutical, or other product is defective or unreasonably dangerous, anyone harmed by the use of the product might be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer.
- Intentional Acts – Personal injury laws apply in situations where a defendant’s intentional conduct causes harm to another person. Examples of this include assault and battery, and other intentional acts.
- Defamation – Personal injury laws apply when one person’s defamatory statement causes harm to another.
