A personal injury case can present itself in many ways. Personal injury law is commonly referred to as “tort law”. This type of law allows a person who has suffered an injury either through an accident or through the intentional acts of a person be compensated for their damages. Not every injury sustained by the actions of another person will lead to liability. A few things have to be proven before a person can establish a personal injury lawsuit.
Understanding what types of events can be the reason for a personal injury lawsuit is essential when thinking about filing a personal injury lawsuit. Every personal injury lawsuit will be different in all aspects, including compensation. Even when a person is experiencing the identical type of personal injury case, they could be awarded two completely different amount of compensation. The extent of the injury is what will typically define how much a person will receive.
Going through a personal injury can result in catastrophic damages, and even as terrible as death. A victim of a personal injury accident must take legal action against the party that caused their damages. Filing a personal injury case will be more effective when it is done with a personal injury attorney. Below will be displayed some common personal injury cases.
Recurrent Personal Injury Cases
Here are some circumstances where a person can file a personal injury claim:
Vehicle Accident: Every year, there are thousands of vehicle accidents throughout the United States. A person who experiences a car crash can result in a fatality or a severe injury. When a person suffers a car crash because of the negligence of another party like the other driver, the road designer, the maintenance crew, among others, they can file a personal injury claim to recover for their damages.
Cruise Ship Accident: Cruise ships have grown increasingly popular. Everyone wants to experience a new ambiance and get away from their “normal” life. An accident on a cruise can range from falling overboard to medical malpractice by the doctor or nurses on board.
Defective Product: When a product is not properly designed, manufactured, or operated, a person can suffer an injury. A defective product can be dangerous like an unsteady railing or sliding doors that shut too fast.
Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice can appear in many different ways from medication errors to surgical mistakes. Every medical professional must follow the standard of care.
These cases are just a fraction of the many accidents a person can go through including dog bites, slip and falls, defamation of character, or intentional acts (sexual abuse, robbery).
