- What is Personal Injury Law?
January 31, 2023
You’ve seen the commercials, the bus ads, and the social media posts. Maybe you’ve even had a friend who needed to turn to a personal injury attorney for help with a situation in the past. But what is personal injury law, exactly, and when should you consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to help you?
Simply put, personal injury law involves cases where someone has been physically or psychologically hurt by another person, an organization, or another party. Personal injury is typically defined as an injury to someone’s mind, body, or emotions.
Generally, personal injury law is about compensating victims of personal injury and punishing offenders in the form of monetary awards, known as compensatory and punitive damages. In this area of the law, the attorney’s goal is to ensure their client gets compensation for their lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.
Personal injury law covers cases in which a person is hurt or injured as a result of someone else’s negligence and is a form of civil law. Often, these cases are settled before ever going to trial, but that’s not always the case.
Because personal injury law can cover so many different types of cases, they are some of the most common civil lawsuits. Personal injury lawsuits can include everything from car accidents to medical malpractice, wrongful death, product liability, defective drugs, brain injury, catastrophic injury, birth injury, nursing home abuse, and more.
If you’re unsure whether you could benefit from the services of a personal injury law firm, it might not be a bad idea to contact one that offers a free consultation to review your situation. It is very important to discuss your case with attorneys as soon as possible after an incident occurs to avoid issues like missing a statute of limitations deadline, which could cause a lawsuit to be dismissed.
Whether or not you have a personal injury case depends on your situation. A good personal injury lawyer can advise you on whether or not you have an eligible case, and picking the best lawyer possible for your circumstances is key.
