Personal injury litigation encompasses a broad array of issues and legal concepts including harm stemming from automobile accidents, and defective products or premises.
Injuries that are the result of the negligence or intentional acts of individuals or commercial entities are the subject of such cases. Economic damages encompass physical and emotional pain and suffering, as well as economic harm, such as lost wages.
Numerous statutes or laws address the various rights and remedies under which the aggrieved can seek recourse. For example, the Tort Claims Act deals with wrongful acts by public entities or their employees. Title 59 deals with the laws pertaining to driving on the public roadways, and insurance coverage issues. Product liability claims are subject to another set of statutes, as well as opinions handed down by the courts (sometimes referred to as the “common law”).
