Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law centers on torts, which is a harmful act (or a failure to act) that is remedied by the law. There are variations of torts that include causing physical harm, damaging someone’s property, or damaging someone’s character. The measure behind torts is that compensation is just to those who have been injured by someone else. To pursue said compensation, the injured party may sue the one who caused the damage. In the legal system, there is a distinction between crime and torts. Torts are defined as civil wrongdoings against an individual which allows the injured to seek compensation. On the other hand, crimes are wrongdoings against society or the state that is punishable by incarceration or fines. Although different, one can commit a crime that also falls under the definition of torts. For instance, battery is a first degree misdemeanor in the state of Florida that is punishable by law. However, the injured party can seek compensation from the convicted party.
