What Is Personal Injury Law?

Under personal injury law, if another person’s negligence, gross negligence, or intentional misconduct caused you harm, then you may have the right to file a legal claim against that person and pursue compensation. That other person’s actions or inaction make them responsible for your economic losses and non-economic injuries, both of which are also known as compensatory damages.

What is negligence? Negligence means another person did not behave the way they should under the law. In legal terms, negligence is a breach of the person’s duty of care. Most people are required, by law, to act as a reasonable person would under the circumstances. When they fail to behave like they should, when they are not careful, this is negligence. You may see negligence described as carelessness. To learn more about filing a personal injury claim based on negligence, you should talk to an injury lawyer in Miami Springs.

A step above negligence is gross negligence. This is when a person behaves in a worse way than careless. The person acts recklessly. In legal terms you will see recklessness described as the willful and wanton disregard for other people and property’s safety. In some situations, if you can show that the other party’s actions were reckless and egregious, or were based on malice, then you may be able to ask the court to grant you punitive damages. Compensatory damages are meant to compensate you for your losses. Punitive damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer.

Beyond negligent and gross negligence (carelessness and recklessness), you can pursue compensation if someone intentionally hurts you. Sometimes intentional harm is also a crime. However, your right to file a personal injury lawsuit is not based on whether or not the other person is charged or convicted of a crime.
