Personal Injury law is something that actually occurs everyday, and the cases are more frequent than people may realize. Essentially, it’s a form of law that allows people to receive the compensation they deserve from an injury due to someone else’s negligence. There are lines that can be drawn in these cases though, as negligence must be present to have a legitimate argument. Personal injury can happen in a variety of different ways.
Serious Car Accidents
Car accidents are unfortunate, yet they happen every single day. Nobody is perfect on the road, but some people are negligent in certain cases. Car accidents result in the most personal injury cases throughout the country. Typically, one of the drivers was not following the rules of the road. A driver like this can certainly be held accountable for their actions, especially if the injured driver suffered serious damage.
Medical malpractice is also a form of personal injury, albeit much more specific than any other type. When a doctor or medical professional fails to adhere to the standard of care, leading to harm that the patient wouldn’t normally suffer, it’s considered medical malpractice. They’re extremely complex cases in comparison to other personal injury types.
Slip and Fall
A slip and fall case can be looked at as accidental, but it’s actually rather preventable. A property owner is responsible for keeping their premises up to code and free of potential hazards. Not every single slip and fall is liable, but the exact cause can sometimes lead to a personal injury claim.
Yes, dogs are loved by virtually everyone, but some can be out of control. Similar to the slip and fall, owners are responsible for the the behavior of their dog. If a dog acts and and bites another person, the dog owner is responsible for that. Even if it’s an anomaly in the dog’s behavior, some states still punish for it.
