Personal injury covers any wrong or damage done to another in his/her person, property, rights, or reputation. A personal injury can happen at work, in a traffic accident, because of a faulty product or a faulty repair, because of a mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on a wet floor or pavement.
The personal injury can be physical or psychological; however, to be considered actionable, it must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions of your employer, a manufacturer, your doctor, your landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care.
Personal Injury Law Causes of Action Include:
• Professional Malpractice
• Wrongful Birth
• Wrongful Death
• Libel or Slander
