What is Personal Injury Law?
This branch of law is also known as tort law, and it protects you when you or your property is harmed or injured due to someone else’s actions or their failure to act. In a successful personal injury case, the party responsible for the harm or injury compensates for the party that experienced the losses. Most cases of tort law are based on someone’s negligence. Every member of society has the responsibility to act prudently and avoid putting people at risk of injury or harm. However, negligence may not be the cause of someone getting hurt every time, such as when an accident is unavoidable. A person must establish liability by showing a reasonable person would have acted differently under those circumstances. After negligence is established, the defendant is liable to compensate the party whose injuries were the result of the defendant’s actions. Examples of expenses they must pay for include medical bills, property damage, emotional stress, and loss of earning capacity. It can be difficult to identify the proper defendant in personal injury cases due to their ability to pay on the judgment. We identify the liable parties based on their connection to the person who directly harmed the defendant, such as an employer or landlord.
What are Some Common Cases of Tort Law?
Filing a lawsuit against a defendant in tort law requires experienced personal injury attorneys to ensure your case gets the adept professional attention it needs. The Law Office of Kent L. Greenberg has years of expertise in a variety of personal injury lawsuits working in your favor. Tort law can be divided into many categories, and we have the expertise to pursue your case under the right one to give you the best possible outcome. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases include the following:
- Intentional torts – This form of personal injury encompasses many cases that aren’t due to negligence, in which the defendant purposefully acted to harm the plaintiff. Examples of these cases include theft, trespassing, assault, battery, false imprisonment, and inflicting emotional stress.
- Strict liability – In these cases, the defendant may have done everything possible to avoid the plaintiff being harmed. If the defendant engaged in a highly dangerous activity, such as building demolition or transporting hazardous materials, the law might hold them strictly liable if someone gets hurt during these activities.
- Defective products – To prove liability in these cases, we must prove the manufacturer acted negligently in the design and sale of an unsafe product. In other cases, if a defective product hurts a plaintiff, they may sue under strict liability, if certain elements are met. Defective product cases can potentially develop into large class-action lawsuits with many plaintiffs and sizable money judgments.
