Personal injury law or tort law covers situations wherein an individual’s body, mind or emotions are hurt. More often than not, it is usually due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. For instance, people may suffer due to accidental slips and falls in a hotel they booked or were injured in an accident because their recently purchased car turned out to be faulty.
The case begins when any injured person (plaintiff) sues a person or a business (defendant). While there are several personal injury cases, certain cases tend to be more common than others. Some of these include but are not limited to car accidents, injuries in premises, medical malpractice and consumer product liability.
The main responsibility of the lawyer working on such cases is money valuation from the claim and because the law varies in different states, the lawyer will need to be thoroughly aware of the subtle differences and fight for your right to claim the compensation. Hence, it is understood that you need to choose a professional who knows the nitty-gritty of personal injury, has a proven track record and can help you at each and every step of the process from start to finish.
