What is Personal Injury? When someone is physically or emotionally injured. The laws covering personal injury allow the injured party to receive compensation for damages caused by someone else’s carelessness, negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. Personal injury laws place demands on its citizens not to harm others. This means that not only should people be safe from harm, but their possessions should be safe from harm too. If you are injured you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries.
Liability can caused by intentional acts or by negligence.
- An intentional act is one designed to cause harm or injury. The person committing the act wants to harm you
- A negligent act occurs when someone fails to take appropriate action and you are harmed as a result of that failure.
Another form of personal injury law covers strict liability (product liability)
- The product may be defective because of an error in the manufacturing process
- Consumers are not warned of possible bad effects from the use of the product.
- The product has design flaw that makes it dangerous.
In most personal injury cases, the victim must have suffered some sort of physical, mental, and/or financial harm to have a claim for damages.
