Accidents happen when you least expect them. They can result in physical injury, emotional trauma, long-term injury, disability, and even death. However, it’s especially tragic when you’re injured due to the negligence or action of another. In these instances you may be eligible for a personal injury claim. In order to navigate the complicated legal system, you need experienced personal injury attorneys to help in your full recovery.
Our Personal Injury Attorneys Want to Find the Fair Compensation You Deserve
“There are several types of accidents that can result in a personal injury,” says Rob Lee, personal injury attorney. “It’s important for injured victims to know their rights, and to seek legal representation when the accident is not their fault.”
The most common type of personal injury in the United States is caused by auto accidents. Reckless drivers who don’t obey traffic laws can be held responsible for the injuries they cause to other motorists, passengers and pedestrians.
This type of personal injury occurs when an employer knowingly puts you in harm’s way, or is negligent about unsafe work conditions. Nursing staff, construction workers, and truck drivers are at high risk for this type of injury. Along with car accidents, workers’ compensation is one of the most common types of personal injury claims.
“This type of personal injury is due to the negligence or action of a medical professional,” says Larry Gurney, personal injury attorney. “This can include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, medication errors, anesthesia errors, or substandard care during childbirth or surgery.”
Slip and Falls
Property owners are legally required to keep their premises reasonably safe and free of hazards. When they knowingly put others at risk, or take no action in fixing potentially dangerous situations, then you may be eligible for a personal injury claim.
