Personal injury law refers to the legal remedies and defenses involved in civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct and injury and damage to an individual’s body, mind, emotions, and property.
The most common types of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, on a cruise ship, product defect accidents (product liability) and holiday accidents. The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which lead to numerous medical negligence claims every year) and conditions that are often classified as industrial disease cases, including asbestosis and peritoneal mesothelioma, chest diseases (e.g., emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic obstructive airways disease), vibration white finger, occupational deafness, occupational stress, contact dermatitis, and repetitive strain injury cases.
Depending upon the intent or negligence of the responsible party, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from “liable” party through a settlement or a judgment. Our group of attorneys will help determine for you whether there is product liability and/or professional negligence that contributed to your personal injury.
