Personal Injury/Civil Litigation

Personal Injury Law is the name given to the area of law that covers any wrong or damage done to another person, his property, rights, or reputation. Personal injury law is often also referred to as tort law or as Civil Litigation, because the cases are handled in civil court rather than criminal court. A few examples include medical malpractice claims, car accident claims, defamation or libel claims, landlord/tenant disputes, intentional tort claims, negligence claims, and premises liability claims.


Generally, a plaintiff in a personal injury claim must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that a legal duty existed, that legal duty was breached, and the breach of that duty was the actual and proximate cause of harm. A plaintiff who is successful at making a personal injury claim is most likely entitled to damages.  Damages may include compensation for past and future medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, attorney’s fees, and other factors. A majority personal injury claims settle out of court with the aid of attorney negotiations and alternative dispute resolution practices. However if an out of court settlement does not occur, the case may be litigated in court, where a judge or jury will decide first as to fault and then on the amount of damages if any.
