In Texas, the term ‘personal injury’ is a field of law involving injuries due to the negligence of another individual or company. ‘Tort law’ is another term that covers liability of a wrongdoer to person, which can involve negligence and intentional conduct such as assault. Other types of torts include injuries and claims for wrongful death involving harmful prescription drugs and medical devices, shopping mall injuries, & slip and fall claims.
