What is personal injury law? Personal injury law creates grounds to compensate the injured party for damages resulting from accidents caused by another person. It seeks to restore the injured person to the position he or she would have been in had the accident not occurred. Since it's not possible for courts to reverse time and prevent injuries, they strive to provide financial compensation to account for the harm caused.
