Things To Know About Tort Litigation

Accidents oftentimes occur in places you would least expect: in totally familiar places; in seemingly non-threatening environments; in well-sanitized places, or even in hospitals. Oftentimes, it is not a question of how carefully you act or move about, but rather of how well others keep and maintain the places where you go.

From a simple slip to a serious bodily injury or, even worse, wrongful death – these are just a few of the harms you can suffer due to others’ carelessness or negligence. To you, the injury victim, regardless of the gravity of the injury, there is always the possibility of medical expenses and, sometimes, economic losses (loss of capacity to earn, for instance) that you need to face.

Due to these sudden and undeserved financial burdens, the law allows personal injury victims to file for a claim to get compensation for all their injury-related losses and expenses. There are actually different types of accidents and injuries that fall under the classification of personal injury wherein a personal injury lawyer can help you file a case and fight for your right for compensation. Some of these are:

  • – Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • – Construction Accidents
  • Car Accidents
  • – Injuries due to Product Liability
  • – Injuries due to Premises Liability
  • – Injuries due to Medical Malpractice
  • – Burn or Explosion Injuries
  • – Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • – Wrongful Death

Many personal injury cases fall under the rubric of tort law – a civil (rather than a criminal) act, one which can be filed as a lawsuit. Though the tort law protects the rights of the victim, it does not tolerate abuse to the liable party when it concerns the amount of compensation the latter has to give. Determining the amount of damages you can ask from the liable party, as well as determining if your case merits a claim, can be done with the least trouble through the assistance of a personal injury lawyer who is highly trained in the realm of Tort law and experienced in trial proceedings.

Save yourself from financial worries over medical needs and economic losses. If your injury is due to someone else’s negligence, call a personal injury lawyer and fight for your rights for compensation.
