What is a “Personal Injury” Case?
Personal injury laws apply to any situation where someone’s causes or fails to prevent harm to someone. It could be an injury caused by a car crash, a fall of a foreign substance at a shopping mall, a bite from a neighbor’s vicious dog or an open manhole in the street.
