What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law is insurance law. More specifically, this type of law is called upon when an accident or injury occurs and compensation is being sought to repay the damages caused by carelessness and neglect. The harm can be inflicted either physically or emotionally, depending on the circumstances of the situation. The entire purpose of personal injury law is to compensate for harm caused by another person or another party.

Personal injury laws can apply in a variety of different cases, such as:

  • Accidents: If an accident occurred due to another person’s recklessness or negligence, then personal injury law may apply. Some common examples of accident cases include car and truck wrecks, workplace accidents, animal attacks and slip and fall situations.
  • Intentional harm: In some cases, a person may inflict harm on another intentionally, like in situations of assault and battery or false imprisonment.
  • Defamation: If a person makes false, or otherwise factually inaccurate, claims about another person that harms their reputation, defamation may be present and personal injury laws may apply to recover damages.
  • Product liability: If a consumer product, an automobile component, or pharmaceutical has been deemed dangerous or defective, any person who was harmed by the product can be held accountable under personal injury law.

How Does a Personal Injury Lawsuit Work?

When an injury has occurred due to another person’s actions, it may be possible to seek compensation through legal means. This depends on many factors, including the severity of the injuries, who was at fault, and whether or not the accident is covered by insurance. Many times, insurance will pay for some of the damages or medical expenses associated with an injury. Even if insurance partly covers the damages, however, there may be more compensation available that just the insurance policy limits of the wrongdoer.

If the other party accepts responsibility for the injury they have caused, settlement talks may begin. These negotiations are critical, as most people would prefer to settle the matter outside of court. In settlement negotiations, both parties will discuss the case and come to an agreement regarding monetary compensation in exchange for not filing a lawsuit. If the injured person agrees to the proposed settlement amount, then the case can end there. If the insurance company does not agree, then a case proceeds in court to a jury trial.

When Should I Seek Assistance From a Personal Injury Lawyer?

The amount of time that passes between the injury and filing a lawsuit is incredibly important, often impacting the success of the case. For this reason, it is important to consider seeking legal assistance as soon as possible to ensure that your case can move forward and that you can receive the compensation that you deserve. Waiting too long between an injury and negotiations or legal action can harm your case and result in less compensation at the end of the day. Additionally, the state of California has strict statutes of limitations laws that require a victim to file a claim within a certain time period or lose their right to do so permanently. Typically the time limit is two (2) years from the date of incident. If, however, the harm is caused or contributed by a public entity then the deadline to file a claim is six (6) months.

Many people make the mistake of trying to handle personal injury claims alone. In these situations, negotiations with insurance companies will often yield minimum compensation, as insurance carriers wish to make the issue go away as quickly and cheaply as possible. Our Pasadena personal injury lawyers have the experience and training necessary to negotiate more effectively with insurance companies, often resulting in greater compensation packages and more comprehensive remedy for their clients.
