Personal injury law is a large umbrella covering many different types of harms to individuals under Tort law. While most of these causes of action arise out of the tort of negligence, the injuries that could give rise to such a case are varied. These run the gambit from car accidents, slip/trip and falls, animal bites, and any other way that individuals may be injured through no fault of their own.
When it comes to negligence, we all owe a duty to act in a reasonable manner as not to injure others through our lack of caution. When these types of accidents and injuries do happen, you are entitled to pursue the person or persons who caused these injuries. In the most common cases, auto accidents, everyone is legally required to have insurance coverage to compensate you for these injuries. When someone gets hurt, it gives rise to medical bills, property damage bills, and the questions of how all these new costs will be covered. Many individuals try to handle these claims with the insurance companies themselves only to find a time consuming and frustrating experience trying to deal with them. Often, the insurance company may just outright deny responsibility, leaving you injured and with outstanding bills, not sure where to turn.
