COMMON PERSONAL INJURY CASES
Accidents happen every day. Of course, various types are more common than others.
Below is a list of common types of personal injury cases followed by descriptions:
Thousands of injuries and deaths occur each year due to car accidents caused by negligent drivers. Driving while under the influence or texting while driving are common causes of accidents, for which the responsible party should be held accountable. In other situations, the car’s manufacturer may be at fault if the accident was caused by a defect in the vehicle.
If you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident caused by another’s negligence, we are prepared to fight for just compensation on your behalf. Catastrophic injuries include amputation and limb loss, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, loss of vision, and more. These types of injuries commonly occur in motor vehicle accidents, construction site accidents, or as premises liability cases when supervisors fail to abide by safety regulations.
Our firm handles cases involving dangerous medications and mass torts for defective medical products. Patients and consumers can be harmed by medications if not properly warned about their side effects or interactions with other medications. We have also handled mass tort claims for defective medical products, such as for trans-vaginal mesh implants that cause serious complications for women.
When a healthcare professional fails to uphold professional and medical standards while treating or evaluating a patient, the mistreated patient may have a medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice includes surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis, prescription errors, and more.
Motorcyclists are often at great risk on the road and must learn to drive defensively. Unfortunately, drivers on the road often get distracted and fail to give motorcyclists the right of way. Motorcyclists can suffer severe injuries, even death, in roadway accidents. Our firm is here to pursue justice on behalf of the injured party and seek damages from the responsible party.
Because the sheer size of a truck can cause tremendous damage to other passenger vehicles and their riders, truck drivers are obligated to abide by strict driving standards and safety regulations. If you were injured in an accident with a truck driver, our legal team will investigate the situation to determine fault and liability.
HOW MUCH COMPENSATION WILL I RECOVER?
All personal injury claims must be handled on a case-by-case basis. The amount of compensation you can recover will depend on a variety of factors. A knowledgeable and well-seasoned attorney can examine your case and determine what damages should be covered by the negligent individual.
Over the years, our team has pursued and recovered financial compensation for the following:
- Physical harms
- Physical therapy
- Medical expenses
- Doctor visits
- Chiropractic therapy
- Lost wages
- Emotional distresses
In many cases, a victim may also receive a percentage of punitive damages. These damages are paid to the plaintiff by a defendant and are meant to be a form of punishment towards the negligent party responsible for the accident. It is important to keep in mind that it can be extremely difficult to recover punitive damages without the help of a highly trained personal injury attorney.
