Personal Injury Encompasses the Field of Tort Law
“Personal injury” is the general terminology referring to the field of tort law. Torts are wrongs committed by people, businesses, and corporations in the civil context. Sometimes there is overlap with the criminal justice system, such as child abuse injury claims, drunk driving, and so on.
Generally, personal injury claims refer to those allegations in which a person has suffered bodily injury, financial loss, and even wrongful death, as the result of negligence or misconduct of someone else. The reality is that severe, critical, and catastrophic injuries change lives and futures, for both personal injury victims and their families.
Sadly, there are physical challenges, emotional barriers, and strains on relationships, which often result from an violation of basic safety rules which likely lasted only seconds.
Personal Injury Claims Come in Many Forms
There are many forms in which a personal injury claim may arise, such as:
- Motor Vehicle Accident: crashes of cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, bicycles; collisions involving pedestrians
- Premises Liability: slip and fall, falling product in a store, negligent security, dangerous condition of property
- Defective Products: dangerous medicines, defective drugs, medical implant defects, consumer product hazards
- Construction Site Accident: contractor negligence, safety violations, falls from scaffolding, work injuries
These are just samples of the types of incidents which can give rise to a personal injury liability claim. Usually, each instance was avoidable through ordinary care, common sense safety measures, and simply “doing the right thing.”
