What Makes Injury Legal?

The term”injury legal” is used to describe the damage or loss an person suffers from the negligence of another person’s or wrongful conduct. It falls under the umbrella of tort law.

The most obvious kind of injuries is the bodily which includes things such as concussion, whiplash and broken bones. These injuries should be treated by a medical professional.

Statute of limitations

The law provides the time frame, also known as the statute of limitations in which an injured person can file an action. In the event of a delay, it will result in the claim being “time barred” and the victim is not able to recover compensation for their losses. The specifics of the statute of limitations differ between states, and each kind of case has its own time frame as well.

The “clock” of the statute of limitations usually begins to tick once the accident or incident that caused the injury occurs. There are a few exceptions to the rule, which can extend the time for filing a lawsuit. The discovery rule is a prime exception. It states that the clock for the statute of limitations does not start until the injury has been identified or should have reasonably been discovered. This is seen most often in situations where the cause is concealed, like asbestos or certain medical malpractice claims.

Another exception applies to minors, who have a year following their 18th birthday to begin lawsuits, even although the statute of limitations will normally expire before they reach the age of 19. There is also the “tolling” provision which extends the limitation period for certain situations and events including military service and involuntary mental hospitalization. Finally, there is the extension of the statute of limitations for willful concealment or fraudulent deception.

Damages

Damages are compensation paid to the victim of an act of tort (wrongful act). There are two types of damages: punitive and compensatory. Compensatory damages compensate plaintiffs for their losses and are intended to help them recover following an injury law firms, whereas punitive damages punish a defendant for fraud, an ill-intentional act that caused harm, or gross negligence.

The amount of damages you are able to claim is highly subjective, and is based on the specific facts of each case. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist you in documenting the totality of your losses. This will increase your chances of receiving the highest amount of compensation that you are able to. For example the lawyer might use experts as witnesses to prove the extent of your suffering and pain as well as a psychological or psychiatric expert witness to strengthen your emotional distress claim.

In order to maximize compensation, you need to take care in the documentation of your current and future economic losses. Your lawyer will assist with keeping detailed notes of your expenses and financial losses incurred and will also calculate the value of future lost income. Experts are often required to determine estimates based on the permanent impairment or disability resulting from your injury.

If the defendant does not have enough insurance to cover your claims, then you might be able to obtain an injunction against them. However, this can be extremely difficult unless the defendant has significant assets or is a corporate entity with multiple assets.

Statute of Repose

There are some differences between statutes of limitation and statutes of repose. Both restrict the time that a plaintiff has to make a claim for injury however there are some commonalities. Statutes of limitations are procedural and forward-looking statutes of repose are substantive and backward-looking.

In simple terms it’s a simple definition: a statute of repose is a law that imposes the deadline by which legal actions are barred — without the same exceptions as a statute of limitations. A statute of repose can be applied to product liability suits and medical malpractice claims.

The main difference is that a statute begins to run after an event, whereas the statute of limitations typically begins when the plaintiff notices or suffers a loss. This is a concern in cases involving product liability for instance, as it could take a long time for the plaintiff to purchase and use a particular product before the company is aware of any defects.

Due to these variations, it is important that injury victims consult with a personal attorney before the statutes that apply to them expire. Michael Ksiazek, a partner in Stark &Stark’s Yardley office, focuses on Accident and Injury Law. Contact him today for a no-obligation consultation.

Duty of Care

A duty of care is an obligation that a person owes others to exercise reasonable care when doing something that may foreseeably cause harm. It is generally considered negligence when an individual fails to comply with their obligation of care and someone is injured due to the negligence. There are a myriad of circumstances where a person company is obligated to provide care to the public, such as doctors and accountants preparing taxes and store owners removing snow and ice off the sidewalks to prevent people from falling and injuring themselves.

To be able to claim damages in a case of negligence, you must prove that the party who injured you had obligations to you and breached their duty of duty, and that their breach caused your injury. The standard of care is typically established by what other medical professionals would do under similar circumstances. If a surgeon performs surgery in the wrong leg, this may be considered to be a breach of duty since other surgeons follow the chart in similar circumstances.

It is also important to keep in mind that the standard of care can’t be so high that it could make it impossible to impose liability on all parties. In jury trials, and in bench trials, the balance is carefully scrutinized by juries as well as judges.
