Our law firm sees a variety of personal injury claims in our office every day. So, what are the 5 most common types of personal injury law cases? 

Car accident

Car accidents, and most types of motor vehicle accidents, occur due to impaired driving, distracted driving, aggressive driving, speeding, or other unsafe driving practices. A negligent driver can cause severe injuries.

Slip and fall accident  

Under premises liability law, slip and fall accidents are some of the most common personal injury lawsuits and occur when someone has slipped or fallen, resulting in an injury, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or bone fractures.

Medical malpractice 

A medical malpractice claim occurs when a healthcare professional acts negligently and causes serious injuries or death to their patient, such as with misdiagnosis or a surgical error.

Workplace injuries  

Workplace accidents are unexpected events causing damage or injury during work activities. These injuries could have been prevented by the employer.

Product liability claims 

Product liability is the legal liability held by a manufacturer and/or seller when a faulty product harms consumers. This can occur in a product’s planning, manufacturing, or advertising phase.

Highlight the challenges victims may face when pursuing personal injury claims in each case type

One common way an insurance company poses a challenge in a personal injury claim is by trying to get the injured party to admit fault for the accident. Personal injury claims can be extremely challenging due to the complicated legal processes and the need for considerable documentation and evidence collecting. We also need to take time to calculate the value of your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages related to your catastrophic injuries so we can seek compensation that meets your needs in your personal injury lawsuit.
