What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury law is based on the concept that when a person is negligent and causes injury to another, that person should pay compensation for the injuries he or she has caused. This concept has been a part of the Nevada legal system since the founding of the country, and it is enshrined in the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution which preserves the right to a trial by jury in almost all civil matters.
Negligence is defined as the failure to use ordinary care. In other words, when a person fails to exercise reasonable care for his or her safety or the safety of another person in a given situation, that person is negligent. When negligence results in injury, the negligent party is liable for the injuries and damages that result from the negligent conduct.
The ways in which a person can be negligent are numerous and varied, and a person can also be defined to mean a company or other corporate actor. Common types of claims are listed above. Click on one of the links to learn more about negligence in that particular situation.
