What is Personal Injury?
A personal injury claim is a legal process in which a person may recover compensation for the damages that he or she incurred due to another party’s actions. Generally‚ damages are compensated financially by the person or company found to be legally responsible for the accident and their insurance company. The most common damages include the cost of medical treatment‚ the impact on the victim’s wages or ability to earn an income‚ the value of property loss‚ and even the level of pain and suffering resulting from the accident.
Unfortunately for many accident survivors‚ complete recovery is not always possible. So‚ financial compensation can also provide much needed assistance with long-term costs associated with more severe injuries and permanent disabilities.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
One of the leading causes of death and injury in the U.S. is vehicle accidents. Not every traffic collision warrants legal action‚ but in the event that a crash was caused by someone’s intentional or reckless actions‚ the responsible party can be held accountable.
Common causes of vehicle accidents include:
• Driver Errors
Distracted driving‚ driving under the influence (DUI)‚ fatigued driving‚ or violating traffic laws.
• Hazardous Road Conditions
Poor road designs‚ bad weather‚ or disrepair.
• Auto Product Liability
Product defects‚ poor design‚ improper manufacturing‚ or failure to provide proper warnings.
The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident‚ whether it involves a car‚ truck‚ or motorcycle‚ is often devastating for the victims. It is crucial that survivors obtain the monetary support he or she needs to afford the overwhelming expenses of physical‚ emotional‚ and mental recovery. In order to recover such funds‚ it is crucial to have a skilled attorney to build a strong case against the liable party.
Other Types of Personal Injury Cases
There are numerous types of accidents that are covered by personal injury law. After vehicle collisions‚ the most common cases include:
• Premises Liability
A property owner or person in charge of a property may be liable for injuries or deaths that result from dangerous conditions on the property.
• Worksite Accidents
While most employees may receive workers’ compensation benefits after an on-the-job injury‚ it may be necessary to pursue a personal injury claim against a negligent employer or co-worker in order to secure adequate compensation.
• Dog Bite
In California‚ dog owners can be held accountable for any injuries or harm caused by his or her dog‚ including injuries‚ emotional damage‚ and lost wages.
• Wrongful Death
When an individual suffers fatal injuries in a personal injury accident‚ the surviving family members can seek compensation for pain and suffering‚ loss of consortium‚ funeral expenses‚ and more.
