What is personal injury law?
In the legal world, the term ‘personal injury law’ refers to legal scenarios where one party suffers an injury as a result of negligent or reckless actions by the other party. These situations, many times, include car accidents, slip and falls, hit and runs, and other accidents that result in injury. These laws help determine how we assign fault in these cases, who is eligible for compensation, and how much compensation you may receive.
Who can file a personal injury lawsuit?
People that are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit are those that have sustained injuries due to the recklessness or negligence of another party. However, remember that the person you sue may not be found to be totally at fault by the courts, which could affect how much compensation you’re entitled to. Furthermore, you may be subject to a countersuit if the respondent believes you should bear some of the fault.
