Personal Injury — An Overview
A personal injury can occur as a result of an auto accident, a drunk driving accident, medical malpractice, or any other situation involving the negligence of another individual. In extreme instances, personal injury can also result in wrongful death.
Under Texas law, everyone has the responsibility to conduct him or herself in a manner that protects others from harm. Standards of behavior are determined by what course of action others in the community could reasonably be expected to follow in similar situations. Thus, unreasonable behavior — whether intentional or negligent — may make a person subject to litigation under personal injury law.
