Personal injury law deals with cases where there is either physical or psychological injury to the person caused by another party’s intentional or negligent actions. Personal injury-type cases recognize tort law as a basis to recover losses caused or future losses that will be caused by an injury. Tort law deals compensating a plaintiff for the economic damages done to a plaintiff’s property and the non-economic damages done to his/her reputation and emotion and mental well-being. It attempts to right the civil wrongs done to a plaintiff who has been injured due to someone else’s fault. Some of the types of personal injury cases include: work injuries, automobile and other types of road accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall, animal bites, and defective products and devices.
In personal injury lawsuits, to determine the defendant’s liability for the injury to the plaintiff, the plaintiff must establish that the defendant had a duty to act with care, the defendant breached that duty, and the defendant’s breach caused the injury to the plaintiff. Every case is complicated and each case is dependent on a number of different factors or circumstances and every fact may be critical. A case may be resolved in different ways but it is often difficult to determine a winning strategy for the plaintiff’s case, which is why the injured would need the services and legal representation of the best personal injury attorneys to fight for his/her rights in court.
