Personal Injury law is a specialized area of civil litigation that includes a party who has been injured as a result of another parties’ negligence. The most common cases arise out of automobile accidents but many arise from injuries that occur on property owned by someone else or in any other setting where another party’s actions injure someone else. The party causing the injury can be an individual, a group of individuals or a business/corporation. The party who brings the lawsuit is referred to as the Plaintiff and the person sued is the Defendant.
You Need a Lawyer
When you are injured in an accident, you are faced with dealing with the physical pain of the injuries and the impact the injuries have on your ability to work, care for your children and attend to your normal daily activities. In fact, until you have experienced a personal injury and its aftermath it is impossible for you to anticipate the emotional, physical, and financial pain that you will feel. Further, the 24-48 hours after the accident are critical as the insurance companies will move in and attempt to assess their risk and limit their exposure for the damages their insured may have caused. As a result, it is important that you have someone on your side that knows and can explain your legal rights to you when it matters.
