A personal injury law involves one person filing suit against another individual or entity due to an injury suffered as a result of the latter’s carelessness. As this video explains, most personal injury legal disputes require the assistance of a lawyer.
Many circumstances can result in a personal injury. Car accidents, medical mistakes, product defects, and animal bites all constitute situations wherein a person may sustain bodily harm or suffering because of another’s negligence and could be eligible for compensation.
Most of the time, a personal injury lawyer can settle their client’s case out of court. Should the case go to trial, a judge or jury will decide if the defendant is negligent.
