What Does Personal Injury Law Cover?

Personal injury laws provide legal recourse for accident and injury victims who sustain bodily harm caused by others. A personal injury claim or lawsuit may arise from a negligent, careless, reckless, or even intentional act. General principles of negligence state we owe a duty of care to others. Any person, corporation, or combination of parties can be negligent if they breach their duty of care. Negligence does not require intent. The conduct that caused the harm only has to fall below the level of care a reasonable person would use under like circumstances. The nature and extent of the duty owed depend on the circumstances.
