A Brief History Of Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law dates back to the ancient law of an “eye for an eye.” If an individual inflicted pain or harm on another, he should receive the same. This common sense approach was famous for enacting justice. This guiding principle was relevant throughout the Middle Ages and was the root of injury law. However,  current injury lawsuits were quite uncommon until recent years.  The first television ad for a  personal injury lawyer did not appear until  1979.  Over the past years, personal injury lawsuits have become popular and in some instances frivolous. The main positive outcome is that individuals have the right to justice when they have suffered an injury through the negligence of another.
