Accident and injury law makes up a significant portion of all civil claims and includes everything from slip and fall injuries and car accidents to medical malpractice and wrongful death lawsuits. Other legal claims falling under this category include product liability, intentional torts (such as assault), and workers' compensation. Since most accident and injury laws are based on common law, they're very similar from one state to the next. In Tennessee, the plaintiff is not held liable for the injuries unless he or she is 50% or more at fault than the defendant.
