Right now people are going about life moving around walking, driving, traveling using various means of transportation and working at their jobs during the normal pace of life. Accidents are also a normal part of life in our day to day activities. With this in mind, accidents bring on pain and suffering, and sometimes confusion when someone is injured in an accident. Many times these accidents bring harm to people when others have acted in a careless fashion. This is where personal injury law comes into play. Personal Injury law is your legal right of protection when others act in a unsafe way and you receive injuries because of their actions.


These personal injury cases occur when someone is harmed because of another person’s actions. Normally the case is taken through the civil court proceedings that look for others that are at fault legally via a court judgment. Many times the case or dispute is handled through an informal settlement before any lawsuits are filed. Personal injury cases are usually settled or handled by the state courts in the county where the accident or injury occurred. If someone was involved in a automobile accident in Orlando, Florida, the persons lawsuit would be filed in the superior court of Florida or Orange County. Depending on the case but ones with lower amounts of damages normally $2k to $5k are filed in a small claims division of the court. If the two different parties involved in the accident live in different states, the state jurisdiction may be different. Usually this occurs if the personal injury case amount is over $75,000. In this event, the case may need to be filed under federal jurisdiction in a federal court. Many times the jurisdiction can be a very tricky issue for someone that is not familiar with the legal law and process. This is why an experienced personal injury ttorney is needed to determine the correct path and help settle any issues that may happen during the lawsuit.


The rules or laws for personal injury cases are a little different from other areas of law. The rules for personal injury cases are not governed by criminal cases or penal codes. They are taken from court decisions and written by legal scholars. Some states have condensed personal injury laws written in statues, but for practical purposes the court decisions are the main source.
