The Most Prevalent Personal Injury Cases

Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury cases entail a variety of situations where people get hurt because of another’s recklessness or negligence. These types of accidents can happen almost anywhere, and at any time. However, there are certain accidents that tend to be most common, and they are listed as follows:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents are all examples of motor vehicle accidents. These types of incidents often unfold because someone was operating their vehicle in an unsafe way while on the road. Those who act without care may be held responsible for the injuries and losses that resulted. Common Injuries for car accidents include broken bones, whiplash, burns, spinal cord damage, crushed extremities, road rash, mental anguish, and more.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice  happens when a doctor makes a mistake or oversight that another doctor in a similar situation would not have done. There are certain standards that all medical professionals must abide by. If they don’t, and a patient was hurt because of it, then they may be held liable for their injuries.  

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and falls can occur in places such as at the park, the mall, a friend’s apartment, a grocery store, on the public sidewalk, and more. Slip and fall accidents usually happen because there was debris, loose wires, curled carpet, or a spilled mess on the floor that had caused someone to fall. The injuries for a slip-and-fall may include traumatic head injury, broken bones, sprains, strains, and soft tissue wounds.
