What is Personal Injury Law?

Posted by Michael G. Butash | Apr 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

Personal injury law cases are a lot different from the criminal cases that we are so used to seeing on tv. Personal injury lawyers specialize in an area of law known as tort law, which includes civil cases, that involve injuries, wrongs, or a breach of contract. When it comes to cases involving personal injury, New Tampa residents who have been harmed because of someone else's negligence may be entitled to some sort of monetary compensation for your injuries. Most civil court cases never reach a verdict as usually the people involved on both sides are able to come to an agreement to negate the situation.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Criminal cases are pretty straight forward as they involve someone being tried for allegedly committing a crime that is illegal. Civil court cases are a plethora number of scenarios that do not involve someone breaking the law, but rather someone has been caused distress in some sort of capacity. When it comes to a case involving personal injury, New Tampa residents can be involved in such incidence such as animal injuries, car accidents, Insurance problems, or even slip and fall scenarios. These are some of the more common cases in personal injury but there are many more cases that a civil courtroom would witness.

How Does a Lawyer Help my Case?

Although it is not recommended, an individual can represent themselves in a civil court matter but there is a higher chance that your case will not end up in your favor. In a case of personal injury, New Tampa Lawyers will help you before your case by screening clients, and gathering evidence, and then later help you with your pleadings, motions, and the discovery phase of your case. Preparing for trial is not something that anybody should have to face alone.
