Americans commonly think about the U.S. legal system as if it is a singular thing. In reality, the U.S. legal system is a broad idea that functions practically within specialized sub-systems. If you need to file for bankruptcy, you’ll file your case in the federal bankruptcy district court that governs over residents where you live. If you need to file for divorce, you’ll work within the family courts. If your small business is suffering because a competitor has infringed upon your intellectual property rights, you’ll work within the courts that handle corporate law. If you commit a crime, the criminal justice system will determine your fate. However, if you’ve suffered injuries as a result of another’s negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous behavior, your case will be governed by the civil courts that handle personal injury claims.
Personal injury law governs the rights of accident victims and the civil rights of crime victims. This area of law also broadly governs the rights of those who may not have been injured as a result of an accident but have nonetheless been harmed because a person, corporation, municipality, or other legal entity caused them harm as a result of negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous behavior. The personal injury claims process allows accident victims to seek compensation through legal action. Attorneys who practice this area of law also assist those who have suffered harm with their insurance claims in order to better ensure that these claims aren’t unfairly valued, delayed, or rejected outright.
