PERSONAL INJURY involves instances where an individual is injured as a result of the negligence of one or more individuals and/or business or governmental entities. Each State has laws enacted to protect the injured party from the damages received. And the injuries may range from damage to property, bodily injury, death, or even injury to ones mind and emotions (psychological injury). To prevail on a personal injury action, the Plaintiff (injured party) must prove that the Defendant (wrongdoer) had a duty to protect the Plaintiff from the injury suffered, that the Defendant breached that duty, that the injuries sustained by the Plaintiff were caused by Defendant’s negligence, and finally, the Plaintiff must prove his or her damages. And there are statutes of limitations in every jurisdiction whereby the injured Plaintiff must either settle or file suit against the wrongdoer. Accordingly, it is imperative that competent legal counsel is sought immediately if you or your loved one has been injured as a result of the negligence of another.
