Cases involving a personal injury that is filed by an individual against another entity or organization fall in the personal injury law category, as it is believed that the accused was the one who showed an act of irresponsibleness or carelessness, resulting in the injury or accident. In most cases, this ends up with an early settlement between both parties through negotiations and a written agreement with the expertise of a lawyer. As compared to criminal law where the government is the one prosecuting the one who did wrong, this will often involve a private plaintiff who seeks compensation from the accused's actions.
