Personal Injury Law
Personal Injury law deals strictly with civil wrong doings. These civil wrongs are under the category of tort law, as opposed to criminal law. Personal Injury law plays a vital role in individual legal rights and balancing the power between individuals and corporations. “Personal Injury” cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm, or damages personal property and that person has to pay for the damage done.
Under a legal rule known as the “statute of limitations,” any lawsuit arising from an accident or injury must be filed within a certain time limit or the injured person’s legal claim will be barred and his or her right to sue will be lost forever.
