Common Personal Injury Cases

Generally speaking, a personal injury case can be developed after you have sustained any injury or illness as the direct result of someone else's carelessness or negligence. Situations that merit a personal injury lawyer might include:

  • A surgeon carelessly hurting a patient during an operation
  • A driver causing an accident because he/she was texting
  • An intoxicated motorist causes an accident that results in injury
  • A pharmacists fills a prescription incorrectly
  • A dog owner fails to warn visitors that their animal is dangerous and it bites someone
  • An employer provides a work environment that is not up to code
  • A motorist attempts to operate a vehicle when he/she is tired and causes an accident
  • A care provider fails to give an elderly person proper attention in a nursing home

Many personal injury cases are the result of medical malpractice, which refers to professional negligence on the part of a medical professional. Malpractice lawsuits can be filed against surgeons, doctors, pharmacists, nurses, care providers, anesthesiologists, or any other medical professional. Accidents happen, but sometimes they can be avoided. If a doctor fails to perform a necessary caesarean section in time and a child is hurt during delivery, the parents may file a malpractice lawsuit. If you think that you may have been victimized by a negligent doctor, talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.

Catastrophic Personal Injuries

Some injuries are more severe than others. If an injury has life-long physical ramifications or leaves the victim unable to function as they could before the accident, it may be categorized as a catastrophic injury. Catastrophic injuries are especially tragic. If you or a love don has suffered a catastrophic injury, such as a severe burn, brain injury, or amputation, you may be entitled to money. We are dedicated to fight for the rights of accident victims in court and believe that reckless, careless, and negligent individuals should be held responsible for their actions.
