What Situations Count As Personal Injury Cases?
If you have been seriously injured and you believe it is someone else’s fault, you may be wondering whether you can claim compensation for it or even take the case to court. Chances are, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim. Below are the common types of personal injury cases:
Car & Truck Accidents
The majority of personal injury cases come from car accidents, but it’s not only passenger cars that play a role, truck accidents and other large commercial vehicles such as vans, buses and even trains play a factor as well.
A few years back the most dangerous intersections in Aurora, IL as reported by Police where N. Eola Road at Indian Trail and North Aurora Road which had 32 crashes. Next was New York and Rt. 59, as well as Rt. 56 and Eola with 30 car accidents. Eola and New York had 27 accidents. Furthermore, Indian Trail and Lake, Galena as well as Smith and Montgomery & Rt. 59 had 24. Finally, McCoy and Rt. 59, and Eola and Liberty had 23 vehicle accidents.
Bicycle and Motorcycle Accidents
Cyclists and riders face a higher risk on the road because their vehicles are smaller and provide less protection as a result bicycle accidents and motorcycle crash injuries can be severe and life changing.
Work-related accidents can be personal injury cases if the employer did not reasonably ensure the safety of his/her employees. This does not have to happen in the workplace – for example, if you had to use a defective company vehicle for a work trip or if you developed a long-term illness from your job, you may be entitled to an injury claim.
Slip And Fall Accidents
Property owners and managers – whether of a private residence, a store, a recreational area, or any type of property – have the responsibility to keep their guests safe. If you tripped or fell and got injured because of a hazard in their premises (for example, a wet floor), it may be considered personal injury and if negligence can be proven you may be entitled to compensation.
When a doctor, surgeon or other healthcare provider causes you more injury by misdiagnosing or wrongly treating your illness, there may be a case of medical malpractice. Birth injuries such as Cerebral Palsy and Erb’s Palsy also fall under medical malpractice.
Dog Bites And Animal Attacks
Pet owners and other animal carers have the responsibility to keep their animals from causing harm. You may hold the pet owner liable if his/her animal attacked you and it caused a serious injury.
Defective Products / Devices
Various everyday products can cause injury if they were produced negligently. Some common examples are defective appliances, faulty cars or car parts, drugs, medical devices, substandard safety gear and more. Often in product liability cases, several parties are potentially liable: the manufacturer, the distributor, even the place that sold you the product.
If a negligent act resulting in someone’s death the family of the deceased may have cause to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
