5 Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

Last updated 5 years ago

Personal injury law is a broad field that typically involves negligence. The following are five common types of personal injury cases.

Automobile Accidents

In 2009, there were nearly 11 million motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Fortunately, most accidents do not lead to serious injuries and the victims are able to walk away. In other accidents, the victims may suffer severe harm. A personal injury attorney can evaluate the facts of your case and help you receive fair compensation.

Truck Accidents

Trucks are a common mode of transportation in the United States, and they are large, complex machines. There are a number of things that can go wrong with these trucks, including driver error and malfunctioning equipment.

Dog Bites

Dogs often make great pets, but they occasionally attack. These dog bite incidents can leave you with extensive medical bills and lost income. You may suffer from long-term pain and scarring as well. The dog owner is often liable for damages in these types of personal injury cases.

Premises Liability

If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability case. Generally, the owner or occupier of property must use reasonable care in ensuring the safety of his or her visitors who are legally on the property. Premises liability cases arise when the owner or occupier fails to properly inspect the property for dangerous conditions or fails to fix these conditions.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur on private property, on the job, on public sidewalks, and everywhere in between. These accidents can be caused by uneven flooring, cracked stairs, and more.
