What Is Personal Injury Law?

I was not aware of personal injury law before, until a friend of mine mentioned to me that she is shifting career from human resources to legal field. She said that the older she gets, the more she craves for a more meaningful job. She said she may have found her calling through personal injury law. Working for one of the big companies in Los Angeles, California, she was able to learn of the ordeals of the people who had suffered injuries from work, or from accidents, as a result of negligence of another party. She said, instead of working for the interest of company, slowly, she is converted to work for the interest of the victims, to work in a field that brings more impact to people's lives. As such, she managed to balance her time between work, and studies. Happily, she shared that soon, she will be finishing her studies and hopes to join the dynamic force among other lawyers as personal injury lawyer Los Angeles California.

Before that, I was only aware of criminal lawyers and corporate lawyers, prosecutors and defense attorneys. Thanks to my friend for opening up to me personal injury law. According to her, she wants to be a personal injury lawyer because she wants to provide legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, or other entity. She further added that personal injury lawyers' expertise is in the area of tort law. She laughed at me when I asked her, "and what is tort law?"

Anyway, my friend explained to me that a tort, is a civil wrong which unfairly causes someone else to suffer loss or harm resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act. Anyway, she was explaining to me the basics of tort law, and its difference from criminal law, and I was like, " I probably need more than one sitting to really be able to tell the difference." I guess I really have a lot to learn more about the legal field.

I am so happy for my friend who is now pursuing this field of law. She said that soon, she may consider working for a law firm representing injury victims so that she could get already the much needed exposure and practice before she becomes a lawyer, and she gets to really experience the meaning of the new career that is making her more excited. She is excited to experience championing victims by helping them win compensation for injuries resulting from the negligence of others.
