What is Tort Law?
Personal injury law (or Tort Law) is that area of the law which provides compensation, through the courts in civil proceeding, to victims or their survivors, for any harm or damage stemming from the wrongful acts of others, either accidental or willful. The damage or harm may be physical, emotional, or both. Our system of Tort Law provides that a person who suffers harm or injury may be entitled to compensation in the form of monetary compensation. The right to recover damages in a personal injury case is based on the long-standing legal principle that an innocent victim of another’s misconduct should not have to bear the burden of the loss. Personal injury laws also pertain to claims filed pursuant to the death of a family member by wrongful means (wrongful death claims).
The Elements of Tort Law
In order to be successful in any civil action the plaintiff must establish the three elements of tort law. First, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant was under a legal duty to act in a responsible or particular manor. Second, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant breached this duty by failing to conform to this expected behavior. Third, the plaintiff must prove that he suffered injury or loss as a direct result of the defendant's failure to perform.
Putting if simply, the injury must have occurred due to the negligence or the unreasonably unsafe actions of another person, a manufacturer, your doctor, your landlord, or some other organization who owed you a duty of ordinary care.
The recovery in a personal injury or medical malpractice case may include compensation as follows:
It has been the experience at Pirrone and Pirrone that most injured victims are entitled to compensation when the injury could have been prevented if the responsible party had taken proper safety precautions. Many injured victims, however, never receive the compensation that they are entitled to because they do not know their legal rights. That is why it is so important to consult an attorney who concentrates in the area of personal injury law whenever an injury is sustained.
