According to the American Bar Association (ABA), “Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else's act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.”
While negligence is the primary basis for personal injury claims, there are some others, including:
- Strict liability
- Holds designers and manufacturers accountable for injuries from defective products.
- Intentional wrongs
- A civil proceeding in court brought by a person or entity and remains completely separate from any criminal charges brought by the government.
Read on to learn more about five different types of personal injury cases.
#1 - Car and Truck Accidents
Car and truck accidents are some of the most common types of personal injury cases we see here at the firm. Insurance companies often try to treat claimants unfairly, so it’s up to us to pursue justice on behalf of injured motor vehicle crash victims.
#2 - Catastrophic Injuries
Sometimes, serious accidents happen, and real people’s lives are forever impacted as a result. When these sorts of accidents occur, it’s critical that injured victims recover the compensation they need to move on with their lives.
#3 - Bicycle Accidents
As you know, riding a bicycle on America’s roads can be very dangerous. Cyclists are often forced to share the roads with motor vehicles, which can be disastrous if motorists lack the attention necessary to keep cyclists out of harm’s way.
#4 - Product Liability
This type of personal injury case is designed to compensate victims who become injured as a result of a defective product.
#5 - Premises Liability
This type of personal injury case aims to compensate victims who are injured due to an unsafe environment.
