How Personal Injury Cases Arise
We recognize that there are many ways in which people can get injured. However, if another person, company, or entity is negligent or careless and causes your injury, you may be eligible for compensation.
Today, we are going to briefly review some common ways in which personal injury cases arise. This is by no means a complete list, so please speak with an attorney about your particular case.
- Car Accidents And Truck Accidents – During the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were more than 80,000 injuries that resulted from vehicle crashes. Many of those were due to gross driver negligence (impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding, etc.).
- Premises Injuries – One of the most common premises liability cases are slip and fall incident that cause injuries. In fact, they send around one million people to the ER each year.
- Medical Mistakes – Johns Hopkins researchers say that medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the US. They commonly occur due to preventable incidents such as medication mix-ups, healthcare-acquired infections, surgical mistakes, birth injuries, misdiagnosis, and more.
- Defective Products – There are hundreds of recalls in the US each year, commonly due to products with poor designs, manufacturing errors, or problems with a product label. Each of these can cause significant injuries or illnesses in consumers.
- Animal/Dog Attacks – Around 6 million dog bites occur each year in the US. Around 800,000 of them require medical attention. In many cases, these dog bites happen due to the negligence of a dog owner’s (failing to keep a dog secured on their premises, letting the dog off its leash, etc.).
- Workplace Accidents – When employers fail to provide workers with the proper equipment and training necessary to do the job, injuries are likely to occur.
