Types of Personal Injury
Personal injuries are most often the result of car accidents, on-the-job accidents, slip and fall accidents, assault claims, accidents in your home, accidents because of defective products and accidents during the holidays.
In addition, medical and dental accidents can result in personal injuries that lead to medical malpractice or negligence claims.
There are other injury types that are considered industrial disease cases. Some examples include mesothelioma, emphysema, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, occupational deafness and repetitive strain injury.
Personal injury cases typically hinge on two questions: who was at fault in the accident that caused the injury, and was that party negligent. If so, then the injured party may be able to get monetary compensation from the negligent party. Oftentimes that money comes from an insurance company that will do everything it can to keep from paying anything.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Most people who’ve been injured quickly learn that they need a lawyer to have the best chance for a successful outcome. Cases can become very complex and the insurance company works hard to make them more complicated and intimidating.
The average person who’s been severely injured may have little understanding of their options. Having a lawyer on your side helps to even the odds and keep the person or company responsible for your injury from taking advantage of you.
Be sure to learn all you can about any attorney you consider hiring. Your lawyer speaks for you and you have to know you can trust him to do what’s best for you and your family. And even with that trust, you need open communication with your legal team and access to them so you can ask questions about your case.
