Personal injury law is a branch of civil law that covers claims for compensation arising from injuries or other damages caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party. In most cases, personal injury claims are based on the legal theory of negligence, which requires plaintiffs to prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care, breached that duty, and caused them harm as a result.
Personal injury law covers a wide range of accidents and injuries, from car accidents and slip and fall accidents to medical malpractice and product liability. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
