Types of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury claims are based in three general areas. The type of claim also helps determine who is responsible for your injury. These claims include:
- Negligence claims are the most common and are based on someone else’s negligent action. A person who acts negligently does not intend to cause injury, however they are still liable because they have acted carelessly compared to how a reasonable person would have acted in the same situation. Those with specialized training, such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, pilots, etc. have a different standard of care. They are compared to how a reasonable person in those fields or professions would act. These claims are based in malpractice.
- Strict liability claims are claims where liability is assumed and negligence does not have to be shown. Strict liability claims usually apply to 1) owners or handlers of animals that injury someone, 2) people that participate in abnormally dangerous activities, such as storing explosives or toxic wastes, and 3) manufacturers or sellers of defective products.
- Intentional wrongs require intent by someone to cause injury, such as an assault and battery. In many instances of intentional wrongs, the victim may file a civil action as well as pursuing criminal charges.
