In the society we live in today, instances of conflicts occurring because of the crucial things that exist around us have increased. These numerous numbers of conflicts have resulted governments, through constitutions to instigate laws that control and solve the disputes arising between individuals with conflicting interests. Most of these misunderstanding and confrontation are as a result of conflicting interests between parties on matters that are held valuable by the society. Some of these factors include personal health, land and property ownership and family. That is why there are different types of laws set to handle these three specific aspects, i.e., family law, personal injury law and real estate law. Below is comprehensive information on the differences between the three types of law that regard important components of life.
The government initiate personal injury law, and they are based on compensations and payments to people who have been in accidents or have sustained injuries due to the irresponsibility of someone else. It begins when an individual files a legal official complaint about another either a company, business entity, organization or even institution claiming that the defendant acted irresponsibly in regard to the injury or accident that brought about harm to the plaintiff. In the occasion where a plaintiff files a formal and legal complaint against another individual, they are looking to be paid and well compensated for the injuries incurred if the defendant is found guilty by the court. Payments and compensations can be done without involving the court whereby the two conflicting parties come together and negotiate privately on the compensation and come up with a written agreement of final agreement made and they both sign.
Family law is instituted to handle conflicts where by family matters and domestic relations are involved. Family law is set out to handle conflicts between individuals or parties where by marriage, adoption, divorce, surrogacy, paternity, child protection, child custody and juvenile law are involved. All these aspects are great causes of conflict between parties where interests do not match and have to be handled under the family law. Legal cases against those who fall below the age set out by the government as the legal age fall under juvenile law which is also an aspect of the family law.
Lastly there is the real estate law that governs land and who may own and use it including the property on it if any. Ownership of land and the property on it has been one of the many issues worth conflicting in the society over the years. Especially in the case of where the deceased does not leave behind a signed and documented will or one that is not clear, the real estate law comes in handy to solve conflict between by determining who owns what and who uses what in the case of land and the property lying on it.
