What Happens In These Cases?
Personal injury cases cover a wide range of things that can happen to cause you or a loved one harm. Any time another person, company, or entity is negligent or careless and causes harm, they can be held accountable for the injuries that occur.
Today, we want to discuss some of the common ways in which personal injury cases arise, but please know that this is not a complete list. Always speak with your attorney when making decisions regarding your particular case.
- Car Accidents And Truck Accidents – During the latest reporting year in New Jersey, there were more than 270,000 vehicle crashes. Out of those crashes, there were more than 61,000 injuries. Many of these were caused by reckless driving behavior – impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding, etc.
- Pedestrian And Bicycle Crashes – These incidents often occur due to the same negligent driving behavior that causes regular vehicle crashes, but with more devastating consequences for the victims.
- Premises Injuries – We often hear of slip and fall incidents. They send around one million people to the ER each year. There are also many other ways in which the negligence of another person can cause patron harm.
- Medical Mistakes –Researchers from Johns Hopkins tell us that medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the country and that thousands more are injured. We know they often occur due to medication mistakes, infections acquired in the hospital, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, and more.
- Defective Products – We know that product recalls happen all the time. Consumers are commonly injured due to poorly designed products, products damaged during manufacturing, or products with misleading labels.
- Workplace Accidents – Employers have a duty to ensure the safety of their workers by providing the proper training and equipment necessary.
- Dog Bites – There are around 90 million dogs in US households. Approximately 4.6 million dog bites occur each year.
