Everyone who drives has specific duties and responsibilities while operating a motor vehicle. When a driver does not uphold those duties and someone is injured, the injured person is entitled to seek "special" and/or "general" compensation for damages. Special damages include documented losses or expenses due to the injury such as past and future lost wages and medical expenses. The term general damages refer to compensation for the change in the quality of life as a result of the injury.
Employers have a legal duty to provide a safe work environment; when that duty is not carried out and an employee is injured on the job, the employee is entitled to workers compensation. At times, workers compensation claims are straightforward; other times, the claim may also need to involve a third party due to negligence, such as product liability.

Property owners have a duty to provide a safe environment to people invited on their property. If someone is injured due to negligence on the part of the owner, the injured party has the right to file suit. However, this does not mean simply because a person slips and falls on another person's property there is a valid legal basis for a lawsuit; the injury must result from negligence.
When a person is exposed to a substance, that while not dangerous in its natural form is dangerous or "toxic" in a form altered by people/science, and is harmed as result of exposure, the injured party may be entitled to seek financial compensation. A key consideration in this type of situation is if the person or company responsible for the modification/alteration of the substance (a) failed to warn of danger or tried to prevent exposure and/or (b) showed a conscious indifference to the situation primarily due to economic gain.

We have found that large retail companies are over-zealously alleging customers have shoplifted. Store employees routinely allege a customer has shoplifted without adequate proof. With a simple call to 911, that person is then arrested and booed into jail based solely on that employee's assumption. When they are wrong, the customer is left victimized with their only right of recovery being a false arrest civil claim against the company.
