TYPES OF PERSONAL INJURY
Types of Personal Injury
Personal injury law may seem straightforward, but it is actually a fairly broad category. There are many types of personal injuries that can occur, and each of these have various levels of severity. Let’s dive into some of the most common types of personal injury.
Slip and Fall
Slip and fall accidents are very common, and they can be caused by any number of reasons. These types of accidents typically happen because of unmarked hazards, such as wet or slippery floors, or obstructions that may cause pedestrians to trip. Slip and fall accidents can result in broken bones, strained muscles, head injuries and more. If this happens due to negligence on the property owner’s or company’s part, you may have reason to pursue a case.
Motor Vehicle Accident
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured in car accidents every year. There are many different causes for motor vehicle accidents, with most of them being fairly preventable. Depending on the kind of accident, injuries can include head or brain trauma, broken bones, spinal cord or back injuries, and more. These injuries can be detrimental, and if they happen because of negligence by someone else, compensation should be pursued and legal action taken.
Though injuries that happen at work are technically considered personal injuries, most of these cannot be legally be filed as personal injury cases. These typically fall under workers’ compensation claims. You can learn more about these here.
Accidents that are caused by a defect or a hazard on someone’s property are considered premises liabilities. These can happen anywhere from commercial properties like public stores and restaurants, to private properties like a friend’s home. Hazards such as missing handrails on staircases, slipping on a spilled substance, or getting bitten by a dog, can all be considered premises liability. Several injuries can occur because of these circumstances, and if negligence can be proven, legal action should be taken.
There are many kinds and causes for personal injuries. Regardless of what has led to yours, and how severe your injury is, you may have a case. Contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today.
