Learn About Personal Injury Law

The law of personal injury is a very broad area of civil law which seeks to provide the victims of wrongdoing with monetary compensation for injuries to their persons caused by the misconduct of another.

There are an infinite number of ways in which people can be physically injured. But not every injury entitles you to compensation – the injury must have been caused, either negligently or intentionally, by another person. Furthermore, if you share a large amount of the fault in causing your injuries, your recovery may be limited or completely barred.

Some personal injuries are caused by intentional conduct, such as battery, but most are caused by conduct which was careless or negligent, but not necessarily undertaken with the goal of injuring someone.
