Personal Injury Types
There are many different types of personal injuries that can generate legal claims. For example, motor vehicle accidents can often result in injuries for which one party or the other attempts to seek compensation. Doctors and nurses can face civil suits for medical malpractice. Companies may be forced to defend themselves against claims related to worker’s compensation, slip-and-fall injuries, or even product liability lawsuits.
In most cases, these claims are brought in civil suits against a driver, hospital, or company – depending upon the specifics of the case. As with criminal cases, plaintiffs are required to prove their case to the satisfaction of the judge or jury and must provide evidence that all elements of a tort have been satisfied. First, they need to prove that you had a reasonable duty to prevent their injury, and that you failed to do so. They then need to demonstrate that your failure to meet that duty caused the injury. Finally, they must prove that there were actual damages incurred.
