Injury Law: Things You Should Know But Are Afraid to Ask

What is injury law?

Injury Law is also known as personal injury law. This area of law focuses on the rights of people who are injured because of someone else’s negligence. For example, if you trip over a crack in the sidewalk and break your ankle, you could make a claim against the city for your injuries. Or, if you’re in a car accident caused by another driver who was speeding through an intersection and failed to stop at a red light, you could make a claim against that driver for your injuries sustained as well as damages to any vehicle or personal property that may have been involved with the accident. In some cases it may be necessary to bring suit against both parties responsible for causing these injuries; either way, it can be very complicated and requires special training from an attorney in this field of law (which is why we recommend hiring one).

 

What are some examples?

Car accidents: Everyone has heard about car accidents before. Some come with more severe consequences than others but they all share one common factor: they were caused by another party (not necessarily negligent) being behind the wheel while driving under the influence or being distracted while texting or otherwise using their mobile device while driving; any number of factors can contribute to an accident occurring involving two cars colliding into one another due to negligence on behalf of one party or both parties involved. He had an occupational risk: This is a term used in the injury law field when someone performs an action that comes with a risk, like construction work or police work. If this risk is not properly addressed by proper safety equipment and training it could lead to injuries on the job that are considered “occupational”. These can become very complicated cases because both sides will need to prove that it was due to negligence on behalf of one party or both parties involved. Slip and fall: When you’re at a store, walking down the street, in your house, or wherever else you may be and you trip over something such as a crack in the sidewalk, broken step, wet floor, etc; this usually falls under slip and fall law because you were injured while walking around and performing daily tasks.

The property owner would typically be held responsible for your injuries if they could be proven to have been negligent toward their responsibility as being in charge of maintaining their property properly. It’s important to remember though (and there are exceptions) that if someone else is at fault (i.e. was standing in the way on the other side of the sidewalk, didn’t clear off a tabletop before you walked by it, or some other factor where you have to blame someone else for what happened) then this would not fall under slip and fall law, and instead would be considered personal injury law. Assault: This is when one person (the “attacker”) takes some sort of physical action against another person (the “victim”), such as punching them in the face or trying to push them down. The victim may not have been injured at all but they still have grounds to sue for assault because they were physically threatened by another person. If this occurs at a bar fight, for example, it could be considered assault even if only one punch was thrown by one party involved. Assault could also occur if someone sticks up their middle finger or points an object like a gun at another party; these are all considered examples of assault that can lead to legal consequences such as jail time depending on how severe any injuries sustained were in addition to the potential civil compensation sought by victims who file claims against attackers due to injuries sustained while being attacked.
