Personal injury laws cover any situation where intentional conduct results in damage. For example, assault and battery are intentional torts. Defective products can also cause harm, allowing harmed users to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer. Some types of defamation can also result in injury. While these are common examples of personal injury cases, many of them date back to old “common law” rules, which were created by judges.
There are specific types of personal injury lawsuits, including workers’ compensation. In most cases, the goal is to obtain compensatory damages for the harm caused. Listed below are the most common forms of compensation. If you think you may not qualify for any of these categories, contact an attorney and discuss your options. If your injuries are too severe, the lawyer can seek workers’ compensation to cover medical bills. If you don’t qualify for these, you can also seek lost wages.
Injuries caused by a dangerous product or faulty construction can also qualify for compensation. A plaintiff may seek damages based on the pain caused by the defective product or dangerous prescription drug. The court may look at the prescription medications that the patient took to treat the pain. The court will look at all the circumstances surrounding the accident to determine if they qualify for compensation. For example, a plaintiff’s injury might have been caused by the actions of another party. If the other party was negligent in their care, the court may award compensatory damages.
Other forms of personal injury law are not limited to accidents. These cases can be filed in civil court for the harm caused by a product or person. The plaintiff’s attorney can help you determine whether you can file a case for compensation. The plaintiff must prove that the company’s negligence caused the injury. The defendant must also have intent to harm the plaintiff and the injured party. Then the lawyer must make sure that the injured person’s rights are protected by the insurance policy.
The first type of personal injury case is a catastrophic injury. This case requires extensive medical treatment and reconstructive surgery. This type of injury causes disfigurement, permanent scarring, or loss of mobility. The plaintiff must have substantial pain and financial distress due to the accident.

Intentional torts are not based on accidents caused by negligence. Intentional harm is a type of injury in which the defendant aims to damage another person. This type of tort can involve criminal charges against the perpetrator. Regardless of the nature of the personal injury, a lawyer will be able to hold the responsible party accountable for the damages he has caused to the victim. The law of intentional injury is complex, and if you’re not sure where to start, it’s important to consult an attorney.
