Accidents and Injuries

People's tendency to get into accidents and suffer injuries is as old as civilization itself, as is the fact that sometimes the actions (or inactions) of others are to blame. While no one can go back and undo an injury, personal injury law provides a way for the injured to be "made whole" again. Relief for injuries usually comes in the form of monetary compensation, or "damages," but remedies may also include things other than money (such as a judge's order to take a particular action). Lawsuits for injuries often are settled out of court, before the court reaches a verdict.
