Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. In local jurisdictions the term is most commonly used to refer to a type of tort lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff’s injury has been caused by the negligence of another, but also in defamation torts. Damages include bodily injury, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Wills and Estates
The legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, whether a will is involved or not, is essentially resolving all claims against the decedent and distributing the deceased person’s property to the heirs or beneficiaries. The probate process officially appoints the executor (or personal representative), generally named in the will when there is one, as having legal power to dispose of the deceased person’s assets in the manner specified in the will, or to the heirs at law if there is no will. Through the probate process, a will may be contested and set aside.
Guardianships, Divorce and Family Law
Family law is an area of the law that deals with family matters and domestic relations generally, including the termination of relationships and ancillary matters, including divorce, annulment, property settlements, alimony, child custody and visitation, child support and alimony awards.
