Personal Injury Law
Personal injury law includes more than injury and death resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Personal injury law may also involve accidents on property owned or occupied by others, construction accidents, industrial accidents, dangerously defective products, and even medical malpractice. In nearly all personal injury cases, the claimant must prove injuries and losses were suffered as a result of the negligence of another. These aren’t easy propositions to show. In order to clearly show negligence, the claimant must prove certain legal elements.
Should a claimant fail to prove any single element, the negligence case falls in its entirety. If a claimant fails to show that damages were the direct and proximate result the negligence of the defendant, the case can also fall on that basis.
