What is a Personal Injury Case?
Anytime someone is injured as a result of an action or a failure to act on the part of someone else, there could be a personal injury case there. Some common ways that people are injured as a result of someone else’s actions are:
- Slip-and-Fall Cases on Commercial Property
- Abuse or Neglect of Senior Adults
- Vehicle Accidents
- Medical Mistakes and Malpractice
- Dog Bites
- Cyclist Accidents on Roadways
- DUI Related Car Accidents with Injuries
A personal injury case is any situation where someone else’s negligence or actions caused an injury. If you’re looking for a lawyer, it is best to select one with experience in the particular type of accident you experienced, and has experience dealing with the particular type of injuries you have.
What Kinds of Injuries Make Up A Personal Injury Case?
Any injury which causes a person to need medical treatment of any kind. This includes soft-tissue injuries such as sprains, bruises, and many cases of neck, back, and other muscle pain all the way to cases with Traumatic Brain Injury, broken bones, and even wrongful death. In general, the more pain and suffering that the incident causes to a victim, the more money the victim will be able to recover in a settlement or at a trial.
