Liability: The Legal Definition
The definition of liability in terms of personal injury law is a legal obligation to another individual. A person who is liable may be under obligation now or at some point in the future. Liability is a very broad legal term. In most cases, it includes all types of legal obligations including financial obligations. Liability essentially means that the law binds, requires, or obliges an individual to act in a certain way or to make good in a certain area. In a personal injury or wrongful death case, the individual or individuals responsible for your losses or injuries or the death of your loved one may be held liable for damages related to that loss.
