A personal injury claim is made any time an individual sustains injury or damages from an accident or an incident of negligence.
Personal injury lawyers represent many cases every year. Here are four of the most common personal injury claims that end up in the courtroom.
1. Traffic Accidents: Any car accident can result in a personal injury claim, even several on both sides. Whiplash is a common result of a car accident, but a personal injury claim can move beyond the injury itself. A person can add damages to the claim such as lost wages and medical expenses.
2. Workplace Incidents: From repetitive strain injuries to falls, there are many types of accidents in the workplace that can result in claims. Improper maintenance of a facility or inadequate safety equipment can result in a workplace incident. Personal injury lawyers can help to determine whether there are grounds for a claim.
3. Tripping Accidents: A very common occurrence within businesses and stores, a customer may slip and fall inside the store and file a claim against the owner or company. Personal injury lawyers can help determine whether there was negligence involved. Tripping accidents can happen due to exposed cords, wet floors, slick or rough spots on the ground, and many other reasons.
4. Product Defects: Any time that a product malfunctions and causes an injury to the user, a claim can be filed against the manufacturer for personal injury. As with any personal injury case, any damages beyond the injury itself can be added to the claim.
