Queens Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting For Justice
You have not have heard of personal injury law, but now that you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, phrases like “Personal Injury Law Firm” or “Personal Injury Lawyer” pop up when you search for answers. So what is personal injury law and how does it help accident victims?
Under personal injury law, those hurt due to the negligence of another have the legal right to file a civil lawsuit. The purpose of this civil lawsuit is to recover compensation to pay for losses such as medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional trauma.
But how do you know that negligence has occurred? Well, negligence occurs when one person or group fails to take what would be considered reasonable steps to protect others in their vicinity. For example, if a person is drunk and they get behind the wheel of a car, this would be considered negligence because they know that they shouldn’t drive while intoxicated.
It’s not always obvious that negligence has occurred. Take this into consideration – many accidents are caused by a defective tool or part. Then, it’s not the person who used that tool or parts fault, but negligence has occurred. This is because the designers and manufacturers of products must test those products to ensure that they are safe for consumers.
If you believe that someone else’s negligence has caused you harm, contact Banville Law today at our local office in Corona. We can review your case and provide you with your legal options.
