How Does Personal Injury Law Work?

How Does Personal Injury Law Work?

Our Rochester Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You with Your Case

When you are injured due to someone's negligence in an auto accident, truck accident, fall on defective stairs, by a medical mistake, by toxic contamination released from a nearby manufacturing plant, or by a defective drug or product, your remedy to recover damages is to bring a personal injury claim within the civil justice system.

The rules followed in this system are based on a combination of statutory law (laws passed by the legislature) and what is referred to as common law, the law we inherited from the judicial precedents of English law, which have evolved through the judicial decisions of judges in the State of New York over the past few hundred years.

As compared to the criminal justice system, which is designed to punish and deter criminal conduct, the civil justice system is designed to compensate victims of negligence and to resolve other private disputes between citizens or corporations. Although there are rare cases in which a court can order that a defendant do something or stop doing something, referred to as injunctive relief, the vast majority of civil cases request payment of money damages for injuries suffered to person or property or to settle some other type of dispute, e.g. a breach of contract.
