Personal injury law falls under the area of law which is called torts. A personal injury case can arise from an automobile accident, a slip or trip and fall, a defective product, or any other type of situation in which a person is injured due to the negligence of another.
If you are injured as a result of another person’s negligence, you may have a cause of action against that person. If, for example, you are injured when another driver runs a red light, you would have a negligence case against the other driver.
Oftentimes folks have difficulty in trying to resolve their case with the other driver’s insurance company; as a result, they have to contact a lawyer to help them resolve their case. A person is entitled to certain damages when injured. Reimbursement for medical bills and lost wages are actual damages which a person is allowed to recover. Other actual damages a person is entitled to are pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and any permanent injury.
