Car Accidents

One of the most common ways a person can be injured by negligence is in a car accident. If you were involved in a collision, even if it was partially your fault, you may be entitled to a claim. Significant damage can result in these incidents that can leave victims paying a high cost.

Drunk Driving Accidents

This type of car accident is particularly devastating, because drunk driving accidents tend to cause serious injury and even death. The driver that is under the influence will often lack normal judgment and can make even more particularly danger maneuvers than they would otherwise.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists can easily become injured because of the negligence of other drivers. With only the protection of a helmet, these injuries are often incredibly serious. The large force of a car and the combination of high speeds only adds to the extensive damage that often ensues. Drivers can fail to notice motorcyclist and leave them seriously harmed as a result of negligence.

Trucking Accidents

Commercial trucks can be incredibly dangerous when on the road with drivers of passenger vehicles. Because of their size, accidents with these vehicles can prove catastrophic. There are different rules which will come into play and it is important to have an understanding of commercial regulations and laws as well.

Bicycle Accidents

There are many ways to be injured in a bicycle accident: a car may fail to notice you, you may have a defective part on your bike or quite possibly the sidewalks and roads were not properly maintained. Bike accidents can come at a high cost, when a driver does not pay enough attention to those that are sharing the roads. Without a form of protection, the impact of a car can send a bicyclist flying to the pavement, suffering catastrophic harm.

Catastrophic

These types of injuries occur in extremely serious accidents. They are more than just the average injury and a full recovery is often not the case. The effects can be felt for a lifetime, as well as the financial burden. They commonly include injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns and other serious harm.

Pedestrian Accidents

These instances occur at a high rate each year, as vehicle drivers fail to take enough precaution when coming to an intersection or other cross walk. Pedestrians may have the right of way but that does not guarantee that cars will give it to them. They can deal with serious impairment after being struck by a car with no form of protection around them.

Negligent Security

This is a form of premises liability that involves the negligence of a land or property owner. Their failure to carry out adequate maintenance through safety and security means. Others can be hindered as a result of their failure to be proactive.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can be serious. If you were bit by a dog that was not properly secured by its owner then you may be entitled to a claim. Approximately 4.5 million dog bites are sustained in the U.S. each year, some of these requiring emergency medical treatment and even reconstructive surgery.

Medical Malpractice

In cases where a medical professional acts in such a way as to injure or fail to prevent serious injury or illness, the victims may be entitled to this type of claim.

Nursing Home Abuse

Among one of the most tragic types of personal injury cases is this one. Abuse of the elderly by their caretakers, whether physical or emotional, warrants a claim.

Product Liability

Product liability law covers the responsibility and legal liability that manufacturers, distributors and major retailers have towards keeping the public safe from harm. When a dangerous or defective product is released on the market and causes undue harm to the consumer, then a product liability claim can be brought against the manufacturers, or distributors of the product.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Also a form of premise liability, when a victim slips and falls it can often be a result of the inadequate safety measures taken by a property owner whether it is private or public property. Owners have a certain responsibility to maintain and use reasonable common sense when determining the level of safety on their property.

Wrongful Death

The most serious types of personal injury accidents lead to the death of an innocent victim. The victims of the family can suffer emotional trauma, as well as financial, when they are left to cover medical costs, funeral expenses or lose the income that their loved one had provided for them.
