Personal injury law is also known as tort law and is designed to protect you if you or somebody in your household or family is injured due to someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury is going to be the one who suffers the losses.
Every tort claim, regardless of its basis in medical, personal or otherwise, whether it was intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues. These two basic issues are the same across all types of tort claims no matter where their bases lie, and those two common issues are liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages that you sustained and if they were, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages and the exact amount of damages in the system of justice will award you a compensation for your loss and be in your favor.
You might be wondering if there is any basis for personal injury besides negligence, and the answer is yes. Strict liability is an important and growing area of tort law. It holds designers and manufacturers strictly liable for injuries from defective products. In these cases, the injured person does not need to establish negligence of the manufacturer. They need to instead show that the product was designed or manufactured in a manner that made it unreasonably dangerous when used as it was intended.
Intentional harm can also be the basis of a personal injury claim, though these are much rarer. If someone hits you, even as a practical joke, then you may be able to win a lawsuit for battery or an assault. Or if a store detective wrongly detains you for shoplifting, then you might be able to win a lawsuit for false imprisonment or defamation.
