Five Common Types of Personal Injuries
POSTED BY Jan Dils . April 3, 2018
There are a wide variety of personal injury cases. Most situations in which someone receives an injury due to someone else’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing can be considered personal injuries. Here are five very common types of personal injuries:
Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury in the United States. If an accident occurs because one of the drivers wasn’t being careful or following the rules of the road, it can be considered a personal injury case.
Doctors are required by law to provide their patients with competent care. Medical malpractice occurs when a health professional doesn’t provide skilled care and the patient receives an injury as a result. This usually leads to the patient requiring more treatment, which can be expensive, stressful, and time-consuming.
Products are legally required to be safe when being used as intended, and the manufacturer can be held liable if a consumer suffers from an injury as a direct result of using the product. Defective products are occasionally released and are usually recalled quickly, but sometimes they are not recalled quickly enough to prevent injuries from happening.
Slip and Fall
Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property safe, clear, and hazard-free. If an individual falls and receives an injury because the property owner neglected to keep their property safe, the injured person may be able to file an injury lawsuit.
The owners of a dog are almost always held responsible for any bites or injuries the dog causes. Even if the dog has never shown any aggression before, the dog owner can sometimes be held accountable during an injury lawsuit.
Other common personal injury claims include cases related to pharmaceutical wrongdoings and mesothelioma. If you’ve been injured by one of these accidents or any other kind of accident call the Our Experience Personal injury attorneys in West Virginia at Jan Dils Attorneys at Law.
