If you or a loved one have experienced a traumatic event or accident and have suffered an injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Thankfully a personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the legal process while offering support, and wise counsel along the way.
There are many different types of personal injuries, and situations in which individuals may experience pain, or harm. The following are a few common personal injury examples.
Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury case. Many individuals drive, or are driven around in a car everyday. Whether commuting to work or school, running errands, or seeing friends, the roads are busy with cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Driving and operating a heavy machine like a car can be extremely dangerous. Some have likend driving a car to handling a loaded weapon, both of which can have devastating consequences. If not careful, a driver can become quickly distracted while behind the wheel. There are many types of distractions that can befall a driver, but the greatest and most common is the cell phone. Drivers can check their email, make phonecalls, text, video chat, browse the web, or check their social medias all from their smartphone. While it is convenient to have all the options available in one small phone, it can prove incredibly tempting to a driver to quickly grab their phone, and become sucked into it’s endless possibilities. Not all distractions are phone related though. Drivers can become just as distracted from their driving while listening to music, getting directions, applying makeup, eating, or talking with the passengers in the vehicle. All it takes is a momentary lapse of jusdgement for an accident to take place. Whether you are partially to blame, fully accountable, or an innocent bystander in a collision, a personal injury lawyer can help.
Another example of a personal injury case is a slip and fall accident. If an individual is walking across a hotel lobby, slips and falls on the wet ground, injuring themselves they would have a personal injury claim if the hotel failed to have proper signage indicating the wet floor. Due to the hotel’s negligence, the injured victim may be entitled to compensation for their pain.
