Lesiones personales (texto en Español)Personal injury laws are affected by a variety of complex federal and state laws. These laws are designed to protect the individual from the negligence or deliberate harm of others and to provide recourse in the event of injury.
Some of the civil wrongdoings that can result in personal injury, such as assault and battery, are also considered criminal acts. In these cases, a separate criminal proceeding may take place to address the criminal charges. A personal injury lawyer can help you file a claim for compensation regardless of whether the defendant in the criminal proceeding is found guilty. If you or someone you know has been injured due to the negligence or deliberate malice of others you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately to determine your legal rights.
