The body of legislations that bring about order and justice in the society are quite broad. To mention a few of these segments we will mention these; Criminal law, Personal Injury, Business law among other categorisations. Let us take some time to highlight somehow the Personal Injury laws and how it serves to restore and settle grievances in the society.
This set of laws are remedies available in legislation and are concerned with civil law suits. The remedies in personal injury laws are sought when the one is aggrieved by the wrongful conduct of another. The actions of another may cause loss or damage to another. Remedies to the offended party in search of justice is found in the body of laws classed under personal injury law. It is important to bear in mind that the government is usually not involved in such cases of civil nature as contrasted to criminal cases where the government is often a key participant and one of the parties of interest. They are cases in which a private plaintiff is seeking legal redress for the harm or loss suffered for the wrongful conduct of the defendant. The most obvious cause of these cases is based on the doctrine of negligence. Caution is expected from every member of the society to ensure that their actions have no injurious results on the person of others and or their property. Personal Injury Law will thus operate to determine liability in case of negligence. Cases that may lead to suits of civil nature based on negligence include torts like car accidents, professional procedures that fail and as such cause losses of lives or financial loss.
Other actions may result in cases of Personal Injury nature but may not be necessarily out of negligence. These are actions that are usually premeditated and intentional. Assault, theft, trespass, and battery are among the examples of actions that will be considered premeditated and intentional. The defendants acts in such a case will be quite seen from a primary sense as having been purposeful and intended to cause harm to the complainant. The injured persons in these cases can often seek legal redress by filing a personal injury law suit.
The defendants to a personal law suit often have their defenseready. For example they may counter the charges of the plaintiff by pausing a question of the plaintiff failing to exercise due care and caution to avoid or escape the resultant accident.
