Injuries can be frustrating, costly, and traumatic, and sometimes legal assistance is warranted.
With that in mind, today we’re sharing some of the important personal injury-related legal terms you should know:
Burden of proof. In a personal injury case, the plaintiff (e.g., the person injured) must prove that they suffered due to the defendant's negligence.
Tort. A tort is a wrongful act that has violated your rights. Usually, a tort is why the personal injury claim is made.
Class action. This is a type of claim where a group is represented by one or a few plaintiffs.
