Personal injury law is the name given to the branch of tort law that covers any wrong or damage done to another in his person, property, rights, or reputation.
A personal injury can happen at work, in a traffic accident, because of a faulty product or a faulty repair, because of a mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on a wet floor or pavement.
The personal injury can be physical or psychological but, to be considered actionable, it must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions of your employer, a manufacturer, your doctor, your landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care.
Examples of personal injury law causes of action include:
- Professional malpractice
- Wrongful birth
- Wrongful death
