What are Personal Injury Lawyers?
Personal injury lawyers help you with your case based on personal injury law, also known as tort law. These cases rely on a couple of key elements: that someone acted negligently and that you were injured in some way from that negligence. Most of these cases begin with accidents, though injuries can be due to intentional actions.
Proving fault for these accidents means showing that the defendant (the person who did something to injure you) acted negligently. This looks different for every case, but an example would be driving above the speed limit, not alerting people to a slip hazard, or providing employees with equipment in poor condition. These actions are negligent and can lead to accidents and injuries.
