Personal injury victims are injured through the fault of another person or group. Personal injury encompasses a broad range of cases, from fall down injuries to automobile accidents. Any case in which one person is hurt by another's negligence or wrongful action (or inaction) may be considered personal injury. The law assumes that people have a duty towards one another that involves acting according to a certain standard of behavior. The standard is based on what a 'reasonable' individual would do in a similar situation. Negligence is defined as a violation of this standard. Examples of negligent behavior include: a person driving while texting, a property owner failing to fix known hazards and a physician failing to give a patient necessary or reasonable treatment. Most personal injuries include physical, emotional and financial hardships.

If you have been hurt on someone else's property they may be responsible for your injuries. Premise liability is a vague term that describes many types of events, including structural design flaws, unsafe conditions, environmental hazards, slip and falls, negligent security and a wide arrange of other issues not related to those mentioned above. Sometimes, when it is a security related issue, neighborhood crime statistics, event history and specific risk considerations play a part in determining whether an adverse event was foreseeable.

Medical malpractice is the result of a health care provider's failure to provide the expected standard of care. When a physician is determined to be negligent, it means that he or she has failed to use the same degree of skill and learning, under the same or similar circumstances, that are used by other members of the medical profession. Some of the more common malpractice instances are when the physician fails to timely diagnose and order appropriate treatment, does not order necessary tests and proper medication, fails to consult with specialist and improper surgical procedures.
