What is personal injury law?
Personal injury law is a legal term that’s used to describe situations where one party is injured by another party due to negligent or reckless actions. Examples of these scenarios may include slip and fall accidents, car accidents and other situations that result in an injury to one or more parties. Personal injury law governs how to assign blame and compensation in these types of cases.
Who can file a personal injury lawsuit?
Personal injury lawsuits can be filed by parties that have been injured as a result of another party’s negligent or reckless actions. It’s important to keep in mind that the person you sue may not be found totally at fault, which could affect how your case proceeds. Additionally, many personal injury suits are subject to a countersuit by the respondent that may question your side of the story.
