Whether you’ve been in an auto accident or if you’ve been the victim of workplace injury due to safety malpractice, a personal injury lawyer could be massively beneficial to your future. If you have a legal case that could significantly impact your life, you’ll want a team and an attorney behind you that is skilled, knowledgeable, and that you can trust. A good personal injury lawyer will help build a strong case for you to ensure you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
Common Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury within the law generally refers to a person who has been injured physically or mentally by another person, company, or entity’s negligence or wrongful conduct. Some areas that a well versed personal injury lawyer (PI Lawyer) may practice include the following:
Auto Accident - Car accidents usually involving one or more vehicles or potentially a stationary object.
Trucking Accidents - Accidents usually involving semi-trucks, commercial vehicles, tractor-trailers, and more that cause personal or property damage.
Motorcycle Accidents - Accidents usually involving a motorcycle and a vehicle or stationary object.
Boat accident - Collision, casualty, or other accident involving or related to a vessel or boat.
Fracking injuries - Accidents related to hydraulic fracking may involve brain injuries, amputations, eye injuries, electrocution, spinal injuries, and other mental or bodily injuries.
Premise Liability Injuries - Accidents occurring on an owner’s or operator’s premise due to unsafe conditions or skewed safety precautions.
Product Liability Injuries - Often occurring when a product’s defects or properties result in injuries of a consumer.
Medical Malpractice - Usually occurs when a medical or health care physician deviates from standards in their practice, which may, in turn, cause harm to a patient.
Slip & Fall Accidents - Usually occurs when a person slips on a work or other premise.
Dog Bites - Accidents usually involving a dog attacking and biting an individuals person.
Wrongful death - Usually occurs when a person is killed because of another’s negligence or misconduct.
While these are just some of the most common examples of personal injury-related accidents, any other unique situation may also be handled by an attorney.
Justice & Compensation
As mentioned above, a good personal injury lawyer can help build a strong defense to work toward getting you the justice and compensation you deserve. The results of a case can ultimately vary depending on who’s involved, what happened, the severity of the incident, and several other factors. Some of the main types of personal injury include:
Scarring or PTSD
Inability to perform day-to-day tasks
Other physical or emotional trauma involved
Generally, personal injury cases are compensated through a monetary damages award or settlement to the plaintiff to try and make up for the accident.
Compensation for the above injuries can typically range anywhere from a few thousand dollars up to six figures in a settlement. Still, ultimately the end result varies depending on each situation. An accident may not only leave you with injuries but can also result in medical bills, increased cost of living, and the emotional stress of making changes in your life after the accident.
