How Does Personal Injury Law Work?
The personal injury system works under the duty-breach concept. Essentially, the law holds that everyone has certain duties to the people we interact with on a daily basis. These duties are rarely if ever spelled out, but they're real. Think about getting behind the wheel of a car- you have a duty, in that situation, to the other drivers on the road, as well as any pedestrians in the area.
A personal injury case arises when one party "breaches" that duty in some fashion- in the case of the car driver, this breach could be driving recklessly or driving under the influence of alcohol.
The car driver is a specific, easy-to-understand example, but personal injury is a broad term that encompasses a huge range of case types. Bill Nettles handles personal injury cases involving:
