Exactly what is Personal Injury law, anyway?
The term “personal injury” is used to define the occurrence of some form of injury, either physical or psychological, as the result of an accident. In legal terms, most personal injuries fall under the category of a “tort.” A tort is a civil wrongdoing, which can lead to a cause of action—i.e., a lawsuit. A tort occurs when someone deliberately or through carelessness causes harm or loss to another person or his or her property. At the Law Offices of Michael L. Neff, we handle tort claims in Atlanta and all over Georgia.
