We at COSMAS LLC take pride in doing our best in the our work of claiming compensation for personal injury suffered by you.
Personal injury law (also known as tort law) allows an injured person/Plaintiff to obtain compensation when someone else's negligent or intentional act caused the Plaintiff harm.
There are a variety of different situations that can give rise to a personal injury claim although not every situation in which someone is injured is going to lead to liability of the other party.
Common types of personal injury claims include road traffic accidents, work accidents or industrial accidents, assault claims, product defect accidents, occupier liability accidents, death claims, medical negligence and recreational injuries.
The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which may lead to medical negligence claims). The most common of personal injury claims arise from vehicle accidents.
Personal injury cases may also include non-economical damages such as pain and suffering attributed to the damages, like for example having anxiety after a car accident which may be attributed to general damages that can be proved in court and may be entitled to monetary means of compensation.
There are other torts, both intentional and non-intentional, that may be pursued and or mixed with personal injury. Medical negligence claims can arise when a doctor or other health care professional fails to provide competent and reasonably skilled care, and a patient is injured as a result.
Medical malpractice cases are some of the most complex types of personal injury claim. Slip and fall cases are another very common type of personal injury case where the occupier of the property has a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe and free of hazards, so that people who are on the property do not become injured.
Of course, not all injuries that occur on the property will lead to liability. The exact nature of an occupier's legal duty varies depending on the situation. If you want to know more about personal injury claims, look up at the main header of personal injury to for a more detailed write-up.
