How do personal injury cases arise?
We do not like to think about it, but there are plenty of ways in which we can sustain injuries as we go about our daily activities. There are so many ways, in fact, that we cannot cover them all here. Instead, we will give a general overview of the most common causes of personal injury cases. If nothing here lines up with what happened to you, please seek advice from a qualified personal injury attorney about your particular case.
One of the most common causes of these cases is vehicle crashes. During the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were more than 128,000 total crashes. Out of those, we know there were over 80,000 injuries. Many of these crashes are caused by:
- Alcohol-impaired drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Those who disregard traffic laws
Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Researchers say that these mistakes are commonly caused by errors with medications, surgical mistake, misdiagnosis, healthcare-acquired infections, and more.
It is not uncommon for us to see people get hurt on another person’s property. Premises liability cases, particularly slip and fall incidents, are often caused due to the negligence of a property owner or the people who work for them. When employees, managers, and property owners fail to keep patrons safe, they need to be held accountable.
When a person is injured due to a defective product, they may have a personal injury case against negligent a company or manufacturer that allowed the product to make it to the market shelves.
There are many other ways that personal injury cases arise, including:
- Birth injuries
- Pedestrian and bicycle crashes
- Workplace injuries
- Dog or animal bites/attacks
- Bus crashes
- Commercial truck crashes
