A personal injury is caused by someone else’s negligence. In a personal injury case handled by an attorney, the trauma itself tends to be quite serious. A minor injury like a laceration without any lasting infection may not cause the type of expenses, trauma, and serious consequences that a personal injury case would address.
Some of the most common injuries in these claims include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Injuries resulting in amputation
- Scarring and disfigurement
These injuries have very serious implications for the victim’s life. It may be difficult or impossible to do your job because of the injury. If you have a family, this can make it impossible to support them as you did previously. The injury may prevent you from getting around in your vehicle, caring for yourself, and enjoying the same quality of life as you did previously. In this way, catastrophic injuries have consequences that are physically, emotionally, and mentally devastating.
The common denominator in these claims is that the injury is caused by someone else’s carelessness. The negligence of the responsible party doesn’t have to be intentional, but it does have to be the cause of the injury. Examples include:
- A distracted driver who causes a crash
- A trucking company who hires an unlicensed truck driver, who then causes an accident
- A manufacturing company that makes defective tires
