For individuals who are unfamiliar with personal injury litigation, the simplest explanation is that it is the area of law focused on civil lawsuits that are brought as a result of wrongful conduct. People are often confused by this and sometimes wrongly assume that personal injury litigation involves a “criminal act”. Criminal action is only heard by a criminal court, in which a prosecutor and a defense attorney argue the legal merits of a case before a judge or judge and jury. Civil law does not discuss the criminality of an act, but is based rather on the “doctrine of negligence”.
The “doctrine of negligence” operates under the assumption that each individual in society has a responsibility to avoid putting others at risk due to their choices, actions, and behavior. This does not immediately assume that negligence is the cause in every single injury case, because the doctrine does allow for some injury accidents to be classified as “unavoidable.” In order to prove liability for an accident, the plaintiff (the injured party) will have to show that a reasonable person would have acted differently than the defendant (the person who caused the injury) under the same circumstances.
Naturally, the definition of “reasonable person” and how said person would react often varies, so it is often up to a judge and jury to decide the outcome of a personal injury complaint. For example, a jury might be expected to decide whether a storekeeper was negligent in leaving liquids on the floor for customers to slip on, or a dog owner was negligent in letting an aggressive dog roam off-leash, or a doctor failed to follow his or her prescribed training and caused a serious injury. Such basic examples are only a small portion of the types of cases that personal injury lawyers like Ali Mokaram handle on a regular basis.
For many people who are unfamiliar with the process of a personal injury claim, the average case may go something like this:
