There are several opinions when it comes to personal injury cases. A school of thought believes that personal injury law creates an avenue for unscrupulous individuals to milk large corporations or organized businesses. Of course, every individual is entitled to his or her opinion but for a lot of people, personal injury law has created a natural lifeline, not only for them but also for their families. Without the compensation provided under personal injury law, a lot of families would be unable to survive the consequences of other people’s negligent actions. How so?
Consider this scenario: a young married father of two who gets injured at his place of work (a construction firm), due to the failure of the company to put in place certain safety precautions that would have preceded the accident from happening. There are several ways of looking at this scenario; the first consideration is the cost of treatment. This will depend on the extent of the injury and considering the high cost of adequate medical care, this is no mean feat. The father is unable to work and as such can no longer earn an income to provide for his needs and those of his family. These injuries also maintained in permanent physical disabilities and the father can no longer return to the only work he is trained for.
All of the above consequences are just a tip of the iceberg; there are many more and all because of the negligence of a company in ensuring the safety of its employees. Thankfully, personal injury law provides an avenue for victims of personal injuries to seek justice and compensation that will help them cope with these consequences. Of course, this particular example (workplace accident) is just one of the numerous cases of personal injury. Others include: car accidents, motorcycle accidents, train accidents, defective products, toxic exposure, defective drugs, animal bites, burn injuries and a host of other injury cases.
