Under the law in Tennessee and Kentucky, personal injury means harm to the human body caused by another person's actions or inactions. “Carelessness” is the most common action or inaction causing personal injury.
To distinguish unlawful carelessness from an accident, Judges and lawyers apply certain legal rules. These rules are contained in a body of law called Tort Law. Lawyers who handle personal injury cases are specially trained in Tort Law.
There are various steps to handling a personal injury case. Damages for personal injury should be determined by a lawyer who concentrates in personal injury cases. If you have not hired a lawyer for your personal injury, you can take steps to protect yourself.
