Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

When an unintentional injury disrupts your life due to someone else’s negligence—at work, in a car, or in a doctor’s office—you should be reimbursed. Unfortunately, the legal system might be difficult to understand. To ensure the best possible outcome for your case, you must retain the services of a qualified personal injury lawyer, such as the professionals at Kuzyk Law.

Premises Liability

Premises liability cases involve injuries arising from a property owner’s failure to maintain the property in a safe and hazard-free condition. Examples of injuries that fall under this category include slip and fall accidents. These accidents can occur in retail spaces, workplaces, and other places of business. While the owner may not be at fault for a fall, violations in the building or lack of fire exits may increase the risk of injury and result in a lawsuit.

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common types of premises liability cases. These accidents can cause serious injuries and require extensive medical care. In addition to musculoskeletal injuries, premises liability cases may involve accidents involving dogs and swimming pools. A premises liability claim may also cover serious injuries, including paralysis and traumatic brain injuries.

Dog Bites

Dog bite injuries can result in permanent disability and loss of income. In some cases, a bite can even lead to losing a limb or amputation. Besides the physical damage, dog bites can also result in emotional trauma. Therefore, non-economic damages can also be sought, although this is more difficult to prove without the help of an aggressive lawyer.

Dog bite injuries can cause various tissue damage, from broken bones to nerve damage. These injuries can be extremely painful and can cause extensive scarring. In the worst cases, the victim may undergo extensive plastic surgery to repair the damages. In addition, dog teeth can even cause serious infections.

Car Accidents

The most common injuries resulting from car accidents fall into two broad categories: impact and penetrating injuries. Impact injuries occur when an individual’s body is struck by a moving object inside the car, such as a steering wheel or dashboard. Penetrating injuries occur when a person is struck by something sharp that penetrates the body. These injuries can result in permanent physical disabilities.

Automobile accidents are the most common type of personal injury case in the United States. These accidents occur when a driver is careless and doesn’t follow the road rules. A person who is injured in an auto accident may be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. Head-on collisions occur when two cars collide, are particularly common, and often result from a distracted or drunk driver. However, they can also occur due to an accident involving a medical emergency.

Medical Malpractice

The most common medical malpractice cases are related to failure to diagnose and treat. These mistakes are caused by a doctor’s negligence and can lead to injury or worsening the condition. These types of medical malpractice claims are filed against doctors and hospitals. Many of these claims are against OBGYNs for errors made during childbirth. These mistakes can cause various birth injuries, including spinal cord injuries, shoulder dystocia, or failure to identify fetal distress.

The amount of damages awarded is determined on a case-by-case basis. Typically, the plaintiff must prove that the negligence caused the injury or illness. Damages may include physical pain, emotional anguish, and loss of work. In addition, punitive damages are awarded in some states.
