Negligence that can lead to an injury – physically or emotionally – should be compensated for and a personal injury attorney in Houston who is an expert in tort law should be consulted when this injury occurs. Tort law is in place to impose liability on those who cause harm by negligence to a person or persons who by this law are allowed to take legal action to be compensated for their injuries. This compensation is imposed to reduce the number of incidents in the future. Many automobile accidents come to litigation due to the negligence of one of the drivers.
The personal injury lawyer will bring action against those responsible for injuries to their clients even if negligence is not the primary factor in the case. There are two other areas of tort law that can be considered in a personal injury case.
This type of liability claim many times concerns a product that has been poorly manufactured and caused an injury when used as it was intended. A personal injury attorney is not charged with the need to prove negligence in this type of case.
An injury caused by an intentional act may also be a basis for a personal injury action. In a case such as assault and battery, there will be criminal charges, but the resulting injuries may be compensable in a civil suit. As with negligence and strict liability, this type of claim should be discussed with the experts in tort law once you have been injured.
