considered actionable, it must occur due to the fault or negligence or
unreasonably unsafe actions of another person or business, like your
employer, your doctor, your landlord or some other person or business
who owes you a duty of care. Accidents are an inevitable part of
life. However, when someone is seriously injured by the negligent
actions of someone else, the victim has the right to pursue
compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and
other losses as permitted under the law. Examples of personal injury
law causes of action include wrongful death, trucking, bus, automobile,
motorcycle and boat accidents, catastrophic injuries, insurance bad
