A Personal Injury Lawsuit Can Be More Than Just a Claim of Negligence

A lot of people assume that negligence that results in some type of injury is the only way someone can have a valid personal injury claim. According to the American Bar Association, that is not always the case.

If you have recently been injured in an accident, it’s important for you to understand what they law says about your situation.

Understanding Strict Liability

Strict liability means that manufacturers, as designers, are held responsible for any injuries that result from their products. There may not have been negligence in these cases, but when someone is hurt as a result, and the product is dangerous, the person or company that is liable is at fault.

Understanding Intentional Wrongs

Intentional wrongs are not as common as strict liability, but they do happen. For example, let’s say you were accused of stealing from a store, and you were detained, but you never stole anything. You could file a lawsuit for false imprisonment. The same is true for many other, similar situations.
