Types of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury law allows injured plaintiffs to gain compensation for the harm caused by the negligent (or willful) actions of another party. There are many situations that can lead to a personal injury case, and we’ve listed some of the most common cases we see at Kaplan & Lukowski, LLP below:
Car accidents are easily one of the most common causes of personal injury cases in the United States. In most cases, vehicle accidents occur because one of the drivers is not following the basic rules of the road, or is not being as mindful as he or she should be.
Slip and Fall Cases
Slip and fall accidents are another common cause for personal injury claims. Property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe and free of potential hazards so that injury does not occur; depending on the nature of the property owner’s legal responsibility, these types of personal injury cases can vary.
Whether they are caused by inherent dangers present on the construction site, or the failure to enforce proper safety precautions, construction accidents often lead to personal injury cases.
Nursing Home Abuse
Although many nursing homes and elder care facilities provide excellent care for their residents, countless others are plagued by serious problems, including understaffing or poorly trained employees. Nursing home abuse cases account for a large percentage of personal injury claims filed in the United States.
Gun injuries and accidents can have devastating consequences. In many cases, they can cause catastrophic physical and psychological trauma. These type of incidents involve negligent behavior, and gun accident victims may be able to seek compensation for their injuries.
