Thousands of people get hurt every day in the United States, sometimes through no fault of their own. Personal injury law allows the injured party to file a personal injury claim and recover financial compensation from the negligent party or parties. Personal injury claims are common in the United States and the following are some of the most common claims:
Vehicle accidents: Vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles and bicycles are some of the most common personal injury claims in the United States. These accidents happen for a variety of reasons such as road maintenance neglect, distracted drivers and poor weather conditions. Victims of these accidents can recover for injuries, vehicle damage, lost income, and pain and suffering.
Medical malpractice: Doctors or other health care professionals must provide competent and reasonably skilled care to patients. When they neglect their duty of care and patients are injured as a result, it may result in medical malpractice claims. The amount of damages typically depends on the type of error and harm done to the patient.
Slip and fall accidents: Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe and free of hazards. When people slip and fall in their properties, they can be held responsible. However, not all injuries lead to liability. The property owner or landowner’s legal duty may vary depending on the situation and the laws in the state where the injury occurred.
Defective products: Product manufacturers are expected to meet the expectations of customers regarding a product’s function and safety. When products are manufactured with defects or designed in a way that was unreasonably unsafe and people are injured, it can result in product liability claims.
Work-related accidents: Employers have a legal duty to provide safe working conditions for their workers. However, thousands of workers die or get seriously injured in workplace accidents every year. When workers sustain injuries at work or develop illnesses due to work, Workers’ Compensation claims are routinely filed.
