When to file a Personal Injury Claim

You might think that personal injury cases only involved medical malpractice and drunk driving. In reality, personal injury cases can involve any kind of accident. As long as someone else was responsible for the accident that caused you harm, you may deserve financial compensation. The term "distracted driving" is found in many personal injury cases today. Distracted driving refers to any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road. Every year, thousands of car accidents are caused by drivers who were talking on the phone or texting while operating a motor vehicle. Driving requires your full attention, and the use of your hands and eyes. Adjusting the radio, glancing at your phone, or talking on your cell phone distracts you from the road and may result in an accident.

When a medical professional carelessly injures a patient, he/she may have committed medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is not limited to surgical errors in the operating room; it may also include:

  • A doctor misdiagnosing a serious illness, resulting the wrongful death of a patient
  • A nurse administering the wrong medication or the wrong amount of a medication
  • A doctor failing to recognize the need for a caesarian section until after the baby has suffered injury
  • A pharmacist failing making a mistake and giving a patient the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of the right medication

In most states, dog owners are completely responsible for the actions of their animals. If you are bit by a vicious dog and the owner failed to warn you that it was dangers, the owner may be held accountable for your injuries and medical bills. Property owners may be held liable for injuries sustained on their land. For instance, if you slip and fall because a property owner failed to warn you about the hazardous conditions on their land, they may be held accountable for the damages you suffer. No matter what the cause, if you have been injured and believe that someone else is responsible, we urge you to talk to an attorney from our firm today.
