Can I file a personal injury claim against the government?

If you have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another party, you can file a lawsuit to hold the other party liable for the damages you suffered, including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. This is the legal principle behind most personal injury lawsuits, including those involving commercial vehicle accidents.

Duty of care in car accidents and premises liability cases

Negligence is the legal theory that forms the basis for most personal injury lawsuits. Put simply, the theory means people have a duty to others to exercise reasonable care so as to avoid the risk of hurting someone else in a foreseeable accident. If they breach that duty by acting carelessly, and someone else is hurt as a result, the injured may hold the careless person liable for their damages.
