What is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law refers to the legal remedies and defenses involved in civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. In fact, the word “tort” comes from a Latin term meaning twist, wrong, or harm.
In contrast to criminal law, a tort action does not involve the government prosecuting the wrongdoer.
Rather, these legal cases involve a private plaintiff seeking compensation (usually cash) for the harm caused by the defendant’s actions.
