Personal injury is an area of law designed to protect those harmed by the negligence, recklessness, malpractice, or inaction of others. Also called tort law, personal injury law encompasses a full range of legal claims, from wrongful death, auto accidents, and medical malpractice to defective drugs, product liability, and workers' compensation Each victim can file a personal injury claim for physical injury, emotional injury, and, occasionally, for property damages. In some cases - such as those involving medical malpractice or wrongful death - the family of the injured or deceased can file suit on behalf of its loved one.
