Many people take precautions to keep themselves safe — wearing seat belts, not texting while driving, installing smoke detectors, and reading safety labels before using the equipment. And, in most cases, those safety measures provide the intended protection from accidents. But there are times when even those precautions won’t protect you — such as when another person is negligent and their irresponsible behavior causes you to suffer harm. When accidents are caused by someone’s negligent actions, personal injury law protects those individuals who have been harmed by providing a legal mechanism to recover compensation for their losses.
