What is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law allows injured persons to get financial compensation from those legally responsible for their injuries. Personal injury law covers injury that affects a person, rather than their property. A person may suffer physical and non-physical injuries as a result of another’s actions, and personal injury law determines under what circumstances the victim can get financial compensation.
Personal injury can be based on three grounds, most commonly negligence. The other grounds are strict liability and tort. Negligence is the failure of a person or entity to act in a reasonable manner to avoid causing harm to others. A person can be held legally responsible for the injuries they cause to others as a result of their negligence.
To prove negligence, the victim must prove all the elements of their claim. They must prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care, the duty of care was breached, the breach was the proximate cause of their injury, and they suffered actual damages as a result. These elements are sometimes difficult to establish, which is why you need a personal injury attorney with an experienced and detailed eye to look at the facts of your case. Every element in a negligence claim is very important because the failure to prove one element is fatal to the entire claim.
