Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

The definition of “personal injury” constitutes a wide variety of different situations. The main qualifications for personal injury are an injury and a negligent party — because the definition of personal injury is rather broad, there are a lot of circumstances that can be considered as eligible for a claim.

We may be able to help you pursue a personal injury claim to recover damages for incidents such as:

  • Car, Bus, Truck & Motorcycle Accidents
  • Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
  • Birth Injuries & Medical Malpractice
  • Defective Products
  • Dog Bites
  • Premises Liability, Slip & Falls
  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Spinal Cord Injury & Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Wrongful Death

What Could Your Case Be Worth?

“Damages” in a personal injury case include the financial expenses and non-economic harm that results from an injury. The majority of damages that result from a personal injury incident are medical expenses. Of course, there are other costs that can result from an injury that are not medical. Additionally, personal injury cases often take non-financial costs into account, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. In some cases, an injury victim may be able to recover punitive damages which are meant to serve as a consequence of a defendant’s negligence. However, punitive damages are rare in personal injury claims.

A person who is injured because of another person’s negligence and files a claim, may be able to recover damages such as:

  • Medical bills (including surgery, medication, rehabilitation, therapy, etc.)
  • Property damages
  • Transportation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Who is Liable for Damages?

The people who are responsible for causing a personal injury incident can vary greatly. In vehicle accident cases, one of the drivers is usually at fault. It is possible — even in collision claims — that a manufacturer, municipality or government entity, or medical professional may be liable for damages. These examples are only some of the most common — as types of personal injury cases differ widely, there are a number of people who may be liable in a case.
