Any person who is injured due to the negligence of another person or an act of hurting someone intentionally to cause harm can file a personal injury lawsuit. There are many types of personal injury cases and here is a list of some of the most common types.
Attack, abuse, and other crimes: If you have suffered injuries due to any criminal activities like robbery, violence or attack you are entitled to compensation. You should work with a lawyer who will ensure you get a judgment in your favor and connect you to the victims’ compensation fund.
Vehicular accidents: Most of the personal injury lawsuits filed are for crashes caused by vehicles especially cars. The injury can happen due to rash driving or not follow the traffic rules, driving under the influence of alcohol and underage driving, etc. The driver who caused the accident is liable for the injuries to the victim due to the crash.
Medical negligence cases: These are caused when the physician or the health care provider causes injury due to negligence, the wrong diagnosis, wrongly administered medicines or provides the wrong treatment to the patients. These claims are very complicated, and you will need attorneys who are specialist in this domain to get compensation.
Injury claims due to falling: This is also a common personal injury claim that people file. Owners of property are responsible for ensuring that the place is safe for people. In case there is an injury due to a fall, the owner is held liable. Not all injuries caused on the property will be liable to a lawsuit and is based on the laws of that particular state.
