3 Common Types of Personal Injury
Posted on Monday, May 3rd, 2021 at 8:14 pm
Have you ever experienced something that led to you sustaining an injury, but you felt unsure if that experience would be considered “bad” enough to file a personal injury lawsuit? Perhaps the latter has never even crossed your mind until now. You’re not alone! Many people experience events that can alter the course of their life or certainly make their lives more difficult for a significant amount of time, yet they’re left to figure it out on their own.
This exact situation puts hundreds upon thousands of people at a disadvantage every year, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Knowing whether something you’ve experienced could make for a legitimate personal injury case can prevent years of suffering and struggling.
Here are three examples of personal injury cases
- Any type of motor vehicle accident, from an eighteen-wheeler fish-tailing into a four-door sedan or a motorcycle being rear-ended by a truck. Whether you’re the driver of a vehicle involved in the accident, a passenger, or even a pedestrian, you could have a personal injury case.
- Accidents at the workplace resulting in injury or illness. Most often, these experiences result in filing a workers’ compensation claim. While not all workers’ comp claims end up needing a personal injury lawyer, having a specialized attorney can help things move along faster and increase your compensation.
- Suffering a medical malpractice mishap, which can easily spell out life-long complications for its victims, is almost guaranteed to be a personal injury case worth enlisting an attorney. In fact, a handful of medical malpractice claims end up being product liability claims if you experienced complications from a medical procedure.
