Personal injury involves injury to an individual. This area of law allows an injured person to sue in a private action called a civil action known in the legal community as a tort action. A ¿tort¿ is a wrong against a person. Any accident or injury against a person can constitute a tort ¿ whether it is in a car accident, slip and falls, the use of a faulty product or the negligence of a professional, there are always many degrees of fault. In order to go to court and be successful against the wrongdoer or negligent party in a tort action, different elements have to be proven. Also, more than one person or party may be at fault, and responsibility may be apportioned among all of the wrongdoers. In some instances, the victim may even be partly at fault for the tragedy but that does not necessarily mean the person does not have a right to bring a lawsuit.
