What Are The Different Types Of Personal Injury Cases
A personal injury case can be defined as the law that covers wrong doing and/or damage done to another person or their property. There are many different types of personal Injury cases that fall under the umbrella of personal injury. For example, automobile accidents, dog bites, head and spinal cord injuries, wrongful death, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall injuries, and worker’s compensation injuries.
Those who have been injured in an automobile accident can sometimes be overwhelmed, especially if their injuries are severe. They may not know where to turn after an accident occurs. There are many things they must take into consideration such as losing time from work, medical expenses, and vehicle repair expenses. Many insurance companies look to settle motor vehicle accidents quickly before the victim can get an attorney involved.
If you or a loved one is involved in an accident that causes major, catastrophic injury such as a head injury or spinal cord injury, then you will need to consult a personal injury attorney. These injuries are life changing and there are many different things that need to be addressed when something of this nature happens. Many times, the victim involved in the accident will have to turn to full disability after such an accident.
Cases that involve dog bites, or slip and fall accidents have their own set of legal rules that must be followed. Homeowners and business owners owe their guests and patrons a duty of care that any reasonable person would give someone who is a guest or patron on their property. For example, if you are walking thorough a parking lot to the grocery store and there is a hole in the pavement by the door and it isn’t clearly marked and hasn’t been repaired with the manager’s full knowledge that the hazard is in the parking lot, the manager has breached this duty of care. This makes the grocery store liable for the injuries you have received as a result of their negligence. The same can be said for dog bite cases. If you have a dog that has a problem with biting you must advise anyone who comes on your property that your dog will bite if it is provoked.
Worker’s compensation cases help those who have been injured while on the job. These types of cases help the injured worker get temporary disability, lost wages, and other benefits until they are well enough to return to work.
