PERSONAL INJURY

PERSONAL INJURY

Personal injury is a general category of law to include every variety of injury to a person's body, emotions, or reputation. Claims for personal injury are brought under three (3) grounds/theories:

1.   Negligence - basis for liability stems from an individual’s failure to behave with a level of care that someone of ordinary judgment would have exercised under the same circumstances. For example, a person fails to stop for traffic and rear-ends you while you were stopped at a traffic light.

2.   Strict Liability – a person is held liable for committing an action, regardless of what his/her intent or mental state was when committing the action. For example, a person’s dog bites you while you are seated at a restaurant.

3.   Intentional Acts – a person acts on purpose causing you injury. For example, a person punches you without cause.
