Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is personal injury?
Personal injury is part of our civil law code. It is an area of law that is designed to help people who are hurt because of what the other party did or didn’t do. It is based on a concept that is referred to as negligence. Negligence involves:
A legal duty. One person had a legal duty to another person. For instance, people who have a license to drive a car have a legal duty to follow the laws of the road.
A breach of that legal duty. One person doesn’t fulfill the legal duty. For instance, someone who is speeding and runs a red light is breaching more than one legal duty.
An actual injury occurs as a result of the breach. Using our example, a person who runs a red light and hits another vehicle has caused an actual injury. The other car is damaged. Another person is likely injured.
The injury must be caused by directly by the breach. If the car that ran the red light slammed into the passenger side of the vehicle, that would be a direct cause.
