Majority of the cases that are filed in the United States are those of personal injury. Personal Injury Laws are made to protect citizens and consumers from negligence of individuals, corporation and governments and to provide a remedy for those who have been injured as a result.
The injury could be from traffic accidents, accidents in the workplace, inappropriate compensation for work done or just anything. The largest number of cash settlements is of cases that involve defective products and diseases caused due to industrial byproducts. Sometimes the injury is less obvious but the malice makes a person sue the opponent to get cash settlement. As the rule framed cannot support the accused that in real may not be at fault and may have accidentally fallen into the trap, the suit gets filed. The accused, though actually innocent has to dish out a large amount of cash and pay the plaintiff.
Personal Injury Law – a controversial topic!
Hence, personal injury law has become a controversial topic. People feel that the accused who has been caught up in the unfortunate circumstances, later on suffers the consequences that can be drastic not only monetarily but even emotionally as it affects his business too. ‘It can have a chilling effect on his business and clog the legal system with frivolous suits from individuals inappropriately seeking financial gain.’ This is a fact, so a huge demand from the people is to reform the personal injury laws. Perhaps there could be an amendment some day, very soon.
