North Dakota personal injury cases involve negligence. This means that damages, injuries, or loss of property and life were the result of another person’s negligent actions. The types of cases involving personal injury can occur in a variety of different places and under many different types of circumstances such as work, school, in a business, at a park, on a roadway, at a neighbor’s house, etc. Types of personal injury lawsuits include things like wrongful death claims, motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall injuries, accidents in the home, malfunctioning products that result in injury, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, and assaults. The list is quite long and it can be hard for a person who has suffered an injury or damages as a result of the actions of a second party to know whether or not they have a viable personal injury claim.
