Common Examples of Personal Injury Cases in West Virginia
A “personal injury” includes any harm that would not have occurred if not for the negligence of another person. In other words, injuries borne of negligence could form the basis of a successful civil lawsuit. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases in our area include:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Collisions between cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles are a common cause of personal injuries in West Virginia. Driver negligence can result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries, especially when a pedestrian is involved. Fortunately, an experienced personal injury attorney can help injured individuals seek compensation from negligent motorists.
Mistakes made by doctors, nurses, or other healthcare providers can cause debilitating injuries or illnesses. Examples of negligence in a medical setting include surgical mistakes, delayed or incorrect diagnoses, failure to treat, and birth injuries.
Slips and Falls
When someone slips and falls due to a hazard on another person or entity’s property, they could be entitled to financial compensation from the landowner. Property owners have a duty to protect visitors from certain hazards and can therefore be held liable when a guest suffers undue harm, depending on the circumstances.
While most products perform as intended, some can have dangerous defects. When these defects result in injuries or illnesses, a local lawyer can help pursue financial compensation from negligent manufacturers and distributors for making and selling a dangerous product.
