Products Liability 

If a product you purchase is defective, you can sue the whole chain of distribution that released the product out onto the market. Assuming you used the product in the way it was intended to be used, you shouldn’t be harmed by any product that passed safety tests. If you are injured, an attorney will be able to look up exactly who to sue and help you with the process. 

Medical Malpractice 

When you go to see your doctor, you shouldn’t end up with an additional unrelated injury caused by a doctor or other medical employees. If you believe you were injured because of the negligence of medical personnel, you could have a case. Medical practitioners are there to help you get better, not worse. 

Workers’ Compensation 

You need to work every day but you should expect your safety to be a priority to your employer. When there is a hazardous condition at work resulting in injuries, you might be able to receive compensation for the medical bills that will pile up. No one should be afraid of injuries in their day-to-day work activities. 

Premise Liability 

Whether you were on someone else’s property for a business or social visit, each property owners owes certain duties to you for your safety. If you are injured, you shouldn’t have to pay for those injuries when the property owner or his or her employees are at fault. Oftentimes, a property owner will have insurance to cover your medical expenses, so you shouldn’t think twice about at the very least consulting an attorney about your options. 

Wrongful Death

Most Common Personal Injury Claims

Injured man and his wife meet with a personal injury lawyer.There are many claims that fall under personal injury law.

Vehicle accidents, slip and falls, workers compensation, products liability, and wrongful death are all possible claims that you can recover compensation for within the field of personal injury law.

Hiring an attorney to review the facts behind your injury will give you the possibility to recover monetarily.

Vehicle Accidents

Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents are one of the most common reasons why people need personal injury attorneys. Accidents not only happen every day but can also happen to any driver or passenger on the road. In addition to dealing with the grief of potential vehicle damage and insurance companies, you may also need medical attention for your injuries. The entire situation can oftentimes be very costly, but you deserve to be compensated for the costs that you incur due to the negligence of other people.

Workers Compensation

Employers may be liable for injuries that happen to you while you are working. Whether you now have a medical condition obtained during your course of business or your employer was negligent in maintaining the work area, you may be able to receive compensation through insurance. Furthermore, if you were driving while working, a workers compensation claim can allow you to recover financially. Many jurisdictions require all employers to have workers compensation insurance, so you may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills, injuries, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Slip and Falls

Slip and falls happen in the blink of an eye. Sometimes, it is not your fault, but rather the fault of the owner of the premises. Whether you slipped from a puddle that should have been cleared or because of a condition that an owner should have properly maintained, you may have the possibility to sue for your injuries caused by such conditions in another’s owned property. Successful slip and fall accident cases have included puddles, poorly maintained areas, and artificial conditions that owners should have been aware of the dangers.

Products Liability

If you are injured because of a defect in a product, you can also sue the business that you purchased the product from along with the manufacturer. Product design defects, manufacturing defects, and lack of sufficient warnings or instructions are all examples of reasons to sue for product liability after you are injured by using such a product. Everyone in the chain of distribution can be liable following an injury involving a problem with a product, so an attorney will be able to determine who should be sued and advise you on which decisions to make.

Wrongful Death

If your close family member passes away due to the negligence of someone else, you still have the ability to sue in his or her place. If you were relying on this family member or have lost the close companionship of that loved family member, you have remedies available to you. The grief of a family member’s passing can be a difficult time to go through, but attorneys will be understanding and take away most of that stress involved in a wrongful death claim.
