Personal injury law is an expansive area that covers any situation where an individual suffers harm due to the actions of another person. It includes motor vehicle accidents (car, motorcycle, public transit), bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, product liability, assault and more.
An essential part of this type of negligence claim is to establish who was at fault, why that person was responsible and whether he or she could have reasonably known that their actions might lead to the injury of another person.
