Legislations that are designed to bring order and justice in the society are indeed broad in nature. These laws are segmented into categories such as a Criminal law, Business law, Personal Injury Law, among other categories. We will spare some time to highlight the operations of the Personal Injury Law in the societal justice system.
Personal Injury Laws are that set of legislation that provide remedies to particularly civil law suits. They are remedies that are sought as a result of wrongful conduct by another. A person may suffer loss or damage due to the actions of some other person. Personal Injury law is the category of law that has the legal remedies available to the offended party to seek restitution in such a case. Worth noting is the fact that it contrasts criminal law in that the government is never involved in cases of Personal Injury Law. In these cases the private plaintiff or complainant is often seeking legal redress often in terms of financial compensation for the harm caused by the wrongful conduct of another. They majority of these cases are often based on the doctrine or principle of negligence. Caution is expected from every member of the society to ensure that their actions have no injurious results on the person of others and or their property. Personal Injury Law will thus operate to determine liability in case of negligence. Negligence is often established in cases such as car accidents, failure to take due care by professionals like surgeons in surgical procedures, other injuries resulting from carelessness by others in possession of animals such as dogs, among other torts.
However not all cases of the nature or form of personal injury are based on negligence. In most cases these are actions that are generally premeditated and as such considered intentional. Some of the examples of these premeditated and intentional acts include assault, battery, theft and trespass. These actions by the defendant are ordinarily seen as having been intended to cause harm to the person of the plaintiff or his property. The injured persons in these cases can often seek legal redress by filing a personal injury law suit.
Defenses are also available to the defendants in a suit of personal injury. In their defense they may always argue a case of the plaintiff failing to take due care and precaution to avoid the harm so caused. The services of an attorney will come in handy in staging a strong case to argue by the plaintiff as they will help in gathering enough evidence, the establishing of financial loss and damages due and also dealing with the insurance companies.
