Personal injury law covers any case in which someone has been injured or killed due to the negligence or carelessness of another. There are some types of personal injury cases that are more prevalent than others. Some of the most common types of personal injury claims are listed below.
Car And Truck Accidents
A driver, passenger, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian has been injured or killed in a collision with a car, truck, or other vehicle in these cases.
Vehicle Equipment Failures
In these accidents, faulty equipment on or in a vehicle, such as tires, seatbelts or airbag equipment failures, causing someone’s injury or death.
This type of personal injury tends to involve someone being harmed, injured or killed due to negligence on the part of a health professional, such as failure to diagnose a serious health issue, improper treatment or use of a dangerous medical procedure.
Product Liability Cases
These cases seek compensation in situations when a defective or recalled product or medication causes someone’s illness, injury or death.
Accidents Occurring at Work
When an employee is injured or killed on the job as a result of unsafe working conditions, insufficiently trained employees, or poorly maintained equipment, the person injured or a surviving family member can file a personal injury claim. As you might imagine, more claims are filed in more perilous lines of work, such as injuries sustained due to oil rig dangers or other work-related hazards.
