3 Lesser-Known Types of Personal Injury Cases, Ava, Missouri

Personal injury law protects people who have been harmed due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another individual, company, or agency. While most cases relate to a bodily injury, illness, or disability, but this legal field also safeguards a person’s standing in the community and financial statust. Here, The Law Office of Christopher J. Swatosh in Ava, MO, discusses three other personal injury claims they handle.

Damage to Reputation

Negatively impacting a person’s reputation is punishable under personal injury law. Libel and slander, such as posting unjustified bad or dishonest reviews of a business online, fall into this category. Harming someone’s reputation can impact their emotional well-being as well as their financial stability. Filing a personal injury claim allows them to seek restitution.

Financial Harm

personal injury Ava MOWhen you sustain a physical injury, you are faced with financial hardships including medical expenses and lost income due to the inability to work. Sometimes, the actions of another person can also threaten your financial status, even without the presence of a physical injury.  Personal injury law applies if somebody endangers your economic stability, for instance by devaluing your property or driving your business to bankruptcy.

Intentional Injury

Most personal injury cases involve one party’s negligence, or the failure to fulfill a responsibility, leading to someone getting hurt. In some cases, such harm is deliberate or the result of so-called gross negligence. The law sees these cases as being equal to intentional harm, so they are pursued under intentional injury laws.
