Accidents happen, and most often when least expected. How you deal with it afterward is your choice; make your choice wisely!
If you have sustained personal injuries due to someone’s intentional, negligent act or sometimes omission to act, you may have the right to seek compensation for physical and even emotional damages.
Personal Injury has many types. The most common form of personal injury is Vehicular Accidents:
If you are injured in any type of vehicular accidents such as car, bus, truck, boat, train, plane, motorcycle, etc., you should immediately seek Medical Care.
Call the police, if it is feasible. A police report from the scene of accident could determine who was at fault.
If possible, you should take down the names and phone numbers of everyone involved, including witnesses. If safe, you should take photographs of the accident prior to moving the vehicles.
Although, it is hard to pay attention in such stressful events, you should try to avoid making statements about faults. Even simple statements such as I am sorry could be interpreted as guilt rather than human compassion.
After the accident:
Make sure you receive any needed medical treatment as soon as possible. You should tell your doctor that you were in an accident, but you do not have to discuss faults.
Make sure that you complete all of the treatments as prescribed by your healthcare professional and keep track of your medical and other related bills.

SLIP AND FALL OR TRIP AND FALL:
Slip and fall or trip and fall is the name of another type of personal injury tort. It is basically a claim against property owners, who negligently or intentionally allowed some dangerous condition on their property to cause your fall and injury.
To have a successful claim the following elements must be proven:
The owner, employee or agent must have caused the dangerous condition negligently or intentionally; and/or the owner, employee or agent must have known about the dangerous condition and failed to sufficiently warn or fix it; and/or the owner, employee or agent should have known about the dangerous condition because a reasonable person would have known about it and tried to war or fix it.
Of course the Judge and/or the Jury would determine the extent of injuries, degree of faults and amount of compensation based on admitted evidence.
There are many other types of personal injury torts such as Medical Malpractice, Dog Bites, Assault and Battery, Defamation and so on.
Defamation tort takes place when someone communicates a false statement that harms the reputation of an individual, business, product, small group, etc. Under common law, the defamatory statement must generally be false and the statement must have been communicated to someone other than the person who claims to have been defamed.
Traditionally, jurisdictions distinguish between spoken defamation, which is called slander, and defamation in printed words or images, which is called libel and so on.
