The purpose of the personal injury system is to allow the injured person to be compensated financially or "made whole" after he or she has suffered harm due to someone else's carelessness or intentional conduct. 

There are a wide variety of different situations where personal injury rules apply:

Accidents. Personal injury rules apply in situations where someone acts in a negligent manner, and that carelessness causes harm to another person. Examples include car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and medical malpractice, among other types of cases.

Intentional Acts. Personal injury laws apply in situations where a defendant’s intentional conduct causes harm to another person. Examples of this include assault and battery, and other intentional torts.

Defective Products. There are a few situations where a defendant can be found liable for injuries without any negligent or intentional wrongdoing. Examples of this include certain types of product liability claims arising from a defective product.

Defamation. Personal injury laws apply when one person’s defamatory statement causes harm to another person’s reputation.

Almost all businesses use some sort of Employment Law. Employment law is the area of law that governs the employer-employee relationship. Therefore, if the business has more than one employee, then the business likely uses employment law. This area is made laws that  include many different subjects with the common goal to protect workers' rights. For employees, these laws work to:

• Prevent discrimination
• Promote health and safety
• Establish a minimum required level for economic support
• Prevent work disruption due to disputes between labor and management. 

Labour laws also seek to protect the rights of the employer. For instance, employers don't have to hire someone they don't feel is qualified, and it is within the employer's rights to expect that employees show up on time and perform the duties for which they were hired. These laws ultimately protect the employer's productivity and, therefore, profits, as well as the ability to remain competitive in the marketplace.

We therefore have the capacity and expertise help you avoid conflicts with your employer/employee.  Feel free to consult is on all issues of employment.
