Have you ever thought about it? Some form of law addressing personal injury has been around literally for thousands of years. If we go back to Biblical and ancient times, the roots of what are now known as tort law and personal injury law were established. What was known as the law of retribution meant someone who harmed another was required to repay the person harmed.
Beginning in England in the early 1500’s Common Law prevailed. In this type of law, which was NOT related to church law, precedents and past rulings determined legal issues. The courts had the power to interpret law. The system was, more equitable for those who were not part of the ruling classes.
Even as recently as a century ago personal injury law was not common. The nature of personal injury law today in the United States and The Great Southwest allows the average person to seek restitution. Ken Wagner Law in Albuquerque is just such a law firm.
