You may be entitled to compensation if you were injured in an accident. Compensation may include your past and future financial and non-financial losses. Most personal injury victims’ losses are much greater than they realize.
A personal injury is any type of injury you sustain by a dog bite, fall, vehicle collision, or other accident. Injuries may include brain injuries, back injuries, internal injuries, cuts, bruises, soft tissue, burns, and broken bones. Further, defamation and slander are considered to be part of personal injury law because they cause damage to someone’s person. A cause of action for “Personal Injury” should be added to your Complaint to recover compensation for physical, psychological, and financial effects of the personal injury.
An Example of Personal Injury: Employer Liability for Employee Car Accidents.
As an employer, if your employee is involved in a traffic accident, then you will likely be held liable for any injuries resulting from a traffic accident for which the employee was at fault. Employer negligence applies whether the injured individual is the driver of another vehicle, a pedestrian, a passenger in the employee’s personal car being used on the job, or a passenger in the employer’s car being driven by the employee. Due to the fact that the employer did not actually commit the wrong, the division of responsibility to the employer is known as “vicarious liability.”
