The legal concept of personal injury covers a wide range of wrongs committed against individuals. Legal action can be taken against those liable for the injuries. These occurrences generally fall under one of three categories or a combination of the three, namely, intentional, negligent and strict liability.

An individual who was injured as a result of an intentional act is entitled to sue the person responsible.  Examples of such cases would include, assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and defamation, to name a few. The injured party must demonstrate that there was an intention to harm behind the actions of the individual who caused the injury in order to recover.

An individual who was injured as a result of someone’s negligence is entitled to sue the person responsible. In such cases, a violation of the standard of care must be shown and that violation must be the cause of the injury.  Examples include, doctors who fail to inform their patients of the risks of medical care, procedures or medicines, failure to warn of a known danger, such as a wet floor or hole.  Other examples include, drivers failing to stop at a red light, or to keep a proper lookout and causing injury.

We know that having a lawyer can mean the difference between a recovery or nothing, and can increase the offer made by an insurance company by thousands of dollars.
