Personal injury law is based on the idea that someone’s carelessness, or negligence, has resulted in your getting injured. Rule systems such as traffic laws are there for a reason: oftentimes, they keep us from making silly mistakes that put others at risk. We're each expected to follow these rules and likewise have a responsibility to hold people accountable when their misguided actions endanger the public.
Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?
Many personal injuries occur behind the wheel; for instance, a drunk driver causes a car accident, and you end up with a broken arm. It would be completely within your rights to enact justice and seek damages for what you're owed. The following may be considered situations in which you have a personal injury case:
- Car Accidents, in which an injury has happened because someone was texting or driving drunk — or otherwise acting carelessly on the road
- Other Auto Accidents, including truck and motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle Accidents, which can happen when traffic laws get broken or drivers get careless
- Medical Malpractice, such as when a medical professional makes a mistake that compromises your safety and costs you money
- Slip & Fall Cases, which are based on premises liability law; if you get injured on someone else’s property, they are liable since they have a responsibility to keep it safe and hazard-free
- Dog Bites, which can happen if a pet owner knows their animal is dangerous but still allows it freedom
