Personal Injury - Lawsuit

The term "Personal Injury Lawsuit" is usually describing the Formal Legal Document that is filed with the Court of Jurisdiction by a victim of a Personal Injury against the liable or responsible party in order to seek compensation for damages related to the loss. A Personal Injury Lawsuit can be brought against a party for negligence, strict liability or intentional acts.  A responsible party can be charged in personal injury lawsuit for Negligence if  cause an injury by the conduct, act or if they failed to prevent act. Strict liability personal injury lawsuits involve a party's defective product or drug. Intentional wrong in personal injury lawsuits involves willful or malicious wrongdoing on behalf of the liable party.

A Personal Injury Lawsuit can be brought under a variety of circumstances. Personal Injury Lawsuits can be filed for car accidents, work injury, drug injury, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, slip and fall injury, exposure to toxic materials, dog bite injury, and in cases of wrongful death. If personal injury caused death, personal injury lawsuits can be filed by a decedent's beneficiaries or dependants in order to seek compensation for damages.

In most Personal Injury Lawsuits, a victim seeks compensation for the injuries they have suffered. Compensation can include medical expenses, mental anguish, physical impairment, a claim for disability or deformity, loss of income and pain and suffering. In those cases where the defendant acted maliciously or willfully or with recklessness, punitive damages may also be awarded. Punitive damages in personal injury lawsuits are intended to punish the responsible party and deter others from committing the same acts.

Most personal injury lawsuits can be settled out of the court system through negotiations with an adjuster from the defendant's insurance company. If however negotiations fail, a Petition can be filed in the appropriate civil court. Personal injury Lawsuits should only be handled by a qualified attorney who can protect and maximize the victim's recovery.

In a Personal Injury Lawsuits, two things must be proven by the Plaintiff or the Victim to win.

1) The Plaintiff must be established that the defendant was, in fact, legally responsible for the injuries that were incurred by the victim.

2) The Plaintiff must present and prove the cause and the extent of the damages suffered were a direct and proximate result of the loss.
