When a person is injured in an accident someone is often legally responsible. Personal injury is a branch of law that is designed to protect persons harmed by the careless or intentional acts of others. The personal injury legal system sets out the parameters for compensating victims who have been injured by such careless actions.
Personal injury law encompasses a broad range of claims, including wrongful death, vehicle accident, boating and personal watercraft accident, premises liability, animal bites, and numerous others. To establish a personal injury claim the injured person must be able to demonstrate that another party has the legal responsibility for the injuries. To establish responsibility for the personal injuries, two factors must be proven: 1) Liability (fault or culpability) and 2) Damages (injuries and losses).
If you sustain a personal injury it is imperative to contact an attorney as soon as possible to establish liability. Witnesses must be interviewed and a thorough investigation must be started to prove the fault of the responsible party. It is also necessary to immediately contact any source of insurance to cover the loss.
Personal injury accidents can cause devastating injuries and financial loss. Depending on the circumstances of the case, the injured victim can seek damages for physical injury, lost earnings, impairment of future earnings, lifestyle changes, loss of support to loved ones, property damage and past, present and future medical care and expenses.
