Common Types of Personal Injury Cases We Represent
- Traffic Crashes—We handle crashes involving all types of vehicles including passenger vehicles, trucks, and vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists and bicyclists. There are many reasons why crashes occur and sometimes it requires a thorough investigation to prove fault. Some common reasons for collisions on the road include speeding, drunk driving, aggressive driving, fatigued driving, and distracted driving. According to Safer America, texting while driving alone increases the odds of being in a crash by 23 times. That does not account for any other distractions in the car such as pets, children, food, or navigation systems. You can file a personal injury case even if you are not the driver or owner of the car. For instance, passengers in Uber or Lyft cars are still able to file personal injury lawsuits if they have been injured in a collision.
- Accidents Involving Children—When children are injured, the outcome can be permanent disability or emotional distress. Furthermore, they are unable to speak up and protect themselves in the same way an adult can. It is critical that a child who is injured in an accident has proper legal representation so that the insurance companies do not take advantage of the situation.
- Catastrophic Injuries—Any injuries to the brain or spinal cord, or ones that cause serious disfigurement or disability are categorized as catastrophic injuries. These are the accidents that send a victim to the emergency room or intensive care unit of a hospital. The medical expenses of frequently astronomical and since recovery requires time away from work, financial compensation is critical for a victim.
- Slip and Falls—According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in five fall results in injury such as a fractured bone or head trauma. If the property owner was negligent in maintaining the area, they may be held responsible for subsequent injuries. For instance, if a person falls and breaks their hip because a handrail was not properly secured, the property owner is liable.
