What Is Personal Injury Law?

Posted on 09/16/2014Back

From time-to-time, people will act negligently, either out of laziness or ignorance or apathy. Unfortunately, other people can be hurt by this negligence. This is where the Minnesota personal injury lawyers at GoldenbergLaw come in.

The law recognizes that there are circumstances in which a criminal case isn’t appropriate. Few would argue that a homeowner should be thrown in jail for failing to shovel a sidewalk in winter or that everyone at fault in a car accident should be convicted of a crime.

A personal suit is a civil case, meaning there is no jail time at stake- the plaintiff is pursuing monetary compensation from the defendant. Individuals or groups of people bring a personal injury case, not the state.

Personal injury law is the way society holds negligent parties accountable and, more importantly, tries to make victims whole. Whatever the specific cause of a party’s negligence, you can still face devastating long-term damages as a result of that negligence.

GoldenbergLaw can use the legal system to pursue justice on your behalf. Personal injury law allows you to pursue compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Personal injury law can be complex and confusing. Our personal injury lawyers are happy to answer your questions and help you determine if a legal action is right for you.
