Types of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury is a relatively broad practice area, as there are many different types of injuries in which someone else may be responsible. Below you can get a look at some of the types of personal injuries we handle in our practice.
Auto Accidents – Auto insurance is not always sufficient in covering medical expenses and property damages following a car accident. Because many auto accidents are caused by careless or reckless driving, there is a reasonable cause to expect financial compensation for any injuries sustained by the party not at fault.
Wrongful Death – Wrongful death cases occur when someone has suffered a fatality as a result of negligence or intentional harm, which leads to financial suffering of family members due to lost income. These cases may involve criminal behavior, occupational exposure to harmful conditions or substances, or medical malpractice.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Slip and fall accidents are among the most common personal injury cases, and they can lead to very serious injuries that might affect your ability to work and participate in regular activities. With slip and fall injuries, property owners or those responsible for property maintenance are held accountable for neglecting to maintain safe premises free of hazards that might cause someone to fall.
Dog Bite Injuries – Dog owners are often held financially responsible for dog bite injuries, because injuries of this nature might have been avoidable with better training or containment of the animal or more active supervision of the dog at the time of the incident.
Reasons to File a Personal Injury Case
The medical expenses of any type of personal injury case can be overwhelming, and lost time at work can present even more financial hardship for the victim of a personal injury. By filing a case, you can get the compensation you deserve while holding responsible parties accountable to help others avoid similar injuries in the future caused by negligence.
