Personal injury litigation falls under tort law and is designed to compensate individuals if they’re injured due to either negligence or intentional harm. The basic concept of personal injury litigation is that the individual or organization that causes harm, either physically or psychologically, is responsible for the harm and should compensate the injured. Personal injury cases include automobile accidents, slips and falls, workplace accidents, medical malpractice and products liability to name a few. Compensation for such injuries is typically for medical costs, lost wages, lost future earnings and for pain and suffering and punitive damages. Proving liability and negligence in a court of law requires an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.

Tort law addresses civil wrongs that by law qualify as grounds for a lawsuit. There are three types of torts: intentional, negligent and strict liability. When a civil wrong results in injury or harm it qualifies for a claim to be filed, also known as tort litigation. There are two options for claims under tort law. The first is for an injunction so the tortuous conduct must be stopped and the second is for monetary damages.
