WHAT WE DO
Suffering an injury can be a devastating event in and of itself. However, victims often suffer the indignation of dealing with insurance companies who refuse coverage or will not provide fair compensation. Our firm's goal is to make sure that such victims are treated physically, emotionally, and financially so that they can resume their lives without unnecessary interruption or interference.
WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY?
PERSONAL INJURY is a subset of a tort which in common law jurisdictions, is a civil wrong that unfairly causes someone else to suffer loss or harm resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act, called a tortfeasor. It encompasses PERSONAL INJURY and other legal injuries. Although crimes may be torts, the cause of legal action is not necessarily a crime, as the harm may be due to negligence which does not amount to criminal negligence. The victim of the harm can recover their loss as damages in a lawsuit. In order to prevail, the plaintiff in the lawsuit must show that the actions or lack of action was the legally recognizable cause of the harm. The equivalent of tort in civil law jurisdictions is delict.
Legal injuries are not limited to physical injuries and may include emotional, economic, or reputational injuries as well as violations of privacy, property, or constitutional rights. Torts comprise such varied topics as auto accidents, false imprisonment, defamation, product liability, copyright infringement, and environmental pollution (toxic torts). While many torts are the result of negligence, tort law also recognizes intentional torts, where a person has intentionally acted in a way that harms another, and in a few cases (particularly for product liability in the United States) "strict liability" which allows recovery without the need to demonstrate negligence.
