What Are Examples of Personal Injury?

Personal injury law provides a means of pursuing compensation and justice for physical injuries caused by someone else’s carelessness. Some of the most common examples include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, including collisions involving motorcycles, passenger vehicles, semi-trucks, buses and commercial vehicles
  • Premises liability, including slip and falls, inadequate security, swimming pool accidents, inadequate maintenance, falling retail merchandise, and snow/ice accidents
  • Most other forms of negligence that lead to a serious injury

Sometimes it can be difficult to demonstrate who the responsible party is. That is why hiring an attorney is so essential. We have the experience with case law, precedent, and personal injury accidents that is necessary to resolve these claims with the best chances for success. And one important aspect of what we do is identifying the responsible party. All personal injury cases have the common denominator of negligence: Someone else’s negligence is the direct cause of the injury; however, did you know that it isn’t always an individual person who is at fault? Liability may lie with a corporation, manufacturer, business, government agency, or other group. Because liability is not always a clear cut issue, hiring our experienced attorneys is an important part of a case. We will work quickly and efficiently to determine who is at fault, and then we’ll begin building a strategic case.
