Our team at Jones, Childers, Donaldson & Webb, PLLC has many areas of practice, and one of them is personal injury law. This part of the law is intended to help prevent injuries that occur due to negligence, and to ensure that those who do sustain such injuries are fairly compensated for their losses. In this article, we’ll go over some key information that everyone should know about personal injury law and when it applies.
To put it concisely, personal injury law applies to the following circumstances:
- Accidents – Personal injury law covers situations in which someone gets hurt as a result of negligence or carelessness. Examples include car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, medical malpractice, and more.
- Intentional Acts – These laws also apply to situations in which someone is injured or otherwise comes to harm due to the defendant’s intentional conduct, such as cases of battery, assault, and other harmful acts.
- Defective Products – If someone is injured as a result of a product failure or defect, personal injury law also protects them. Some examples of the types of products that have been implicated in these types of cases include vehicle parts, pharmaceutical products, and even ordinary consumer goods.
- Defamation – Personal injury law is not limited to physical injuries. If someone makes defamatory statements that cause harm to another, they can be found liable for those damages in a court of law. This type of case is often pretty tricky, but our team has the necessary experience to give you the top-notch representation you deserve.
