Types of Personal Injury Cases

Many personal injury cases involve automobile accidents. Every year, thousands of car accidents are caused by distracted drivers. The term "distracted driver" can refer to any activity that takes you attention away from the road while you are operating a motor vehicle. Distractions may include:

  • Texting
  • Answering phone calls
  • Looking at a map
  • Using a GPS device
  • Eating
  • Applying makeup
  • Adjusting the radio

Driving a car requires your full attention, the use of your hands, and the use of your eyes. Although none of these activities are innately wrong in and of themselves, they impair one or more of the necessary abilities you need to properly drive a car. Filing a personal injury claim may be your best option if you have been hurt in an automobile accident because another driver was distracted.

Patients should be able to trust the help offered to them by medical professionals. When a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other medical professional is careless or negligent, the results could easily be catastrophic or deadly. Medical malpractice suits can be filed under a variety of situations. For instance, if a pharmacist fills a prescription incorrectly, a doctor makes a carless mistake during an operation, or a nurse gives a patient the wrong medication because they were distracted, a medical malpractice suit may be appropriate.

You may not reality it, but personal injury cases can be developed from many different types of accidents - not just medical mistakes and car wrecks. For instance, you may file a personal injury claim if you are bit by a dog because its owner failed to warn you that it was dangerous. Similarly, if you are hurt on someone else property because the owner failed to warn you about a hazard, you may be entitled to money. If you are thinking about filing a personal injury claim but aren't sure if you have a case, talk to an attorney from our firm and we can help you understand your legal rights.
