Personal injury law refers to legal proceedings that arise when an individual is injured due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party. This can include injuries from car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and more. In these cases, the injured party may be entitled to compensation for their damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits
At its core, personal injury law is about seeking compensation for harm suffered by someone due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party. While there are countless ways in which a person can be injured, there are a few common types of personal injury lawsuits that we see regularly.
One of the most common types of personal injury cases is car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were over 6 million car accidents in the United States in 2019 alone. These accidents can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries.
Another type of personal injury case is slip and fall accidents. These occur when someone is injured due to a hazardous condition on someone else's property, such as a wet floor or uneven pavement. Slip and fall accidents can result in injuries ranging from minor bruises to broken bones and head injuries.
Finally, medical malpractice is another common type of personal injury case. This occurs when a healthcare provider fails to provide the appropriate standard of care, resulting in harm to the patient. Medical malpractice cases can be complex and require expert testimony to prove negligence.
