Personal Injury Law
Personal injury law is a field of civil law that deals with providing monetary compensation for victims of accidents or social wrongs. The injured person filing the suit is called the “plaintiff,” and the person or entity allegedly responsible for the injury is called the “defendant.” In fatal accidents, the family of the decedent may bring a lawsuit against the person or entity responsible for the accident, known as a wrongful death suit.
The goal of personal injury proceedings is generally to seek financial compensation rather than punishing the accused. Although, in some cases, punitive damages may be sought and awarded for particularly egregious or malicious misconduct by a defendant.
Negligence in Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury lawsuits may arise out of any situation, including motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, professional malpractice, or nursing home abuse. Most injuries are caused by negligence or recklessness, rather than intentional conduct.
In most states, a plaintiff claiming negligence will need to prove basic elements of negligence and prove that they were injured as a result of said negligence:
- The defendant owed them a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty, that the defendant’s breach of that duty caused a specific harm
- The plaintiff has been directly harmed by that breach
