Most Frequent Causes Of Personal Injury
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury lawsuits. They can occur due to various factors such as distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, or reckless behavior. When someone’s negligent actions behind the wheel cause you injury, you need to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for the damages.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents commonly occur on premises with hazardous conditions, such as wet floors, uneven surfaces, or inadequate lighting. Property owners or occupiers have a legal duty to maintain safe premises. If they fail to do so, resulting in injuries, they should be held liable in a personal injury lawsuit. These cases often involve proving that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to take reasonable steps to address it. As your personal injury lawyer, I’ll see to it they are held responsible for your injury and you are properly compensated.
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional or institution provides substandard care that leads to injury or harm to a patient. Examples of medical malpractice include surgical errors, misdiagnosis, medication mistakes, or birth injuries. To succeed in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must demonstrate that the healthcare provider’s actions deviated from the accepted standard of care and directly caused your injuries.
Product liability cases arise when a defective or dangerous product causes harm to a consumer. This can include defective vehicles, machinery, pharmaceutical drugs, or consumer goods. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers can be held responsible for injuries resulting from defects in the design, manufacturing, or lack of warning labels associated with their products.
Workplace accidents can lead to personal injury lawsuits if an employee is injured due to unsafe working conditions or employer negligence. Examples include construction site accidents, exposure to hazardous substances, or lack of proper safety protocols. In such cases, injured workers may be entitled to file a lawsuit against their employer or a third party whose negligence contributed to their injuries.

I am here for my clients and their families, and I know how hard it can be when you are unable to return to work, or have mounting medical bills.

Examples Of Personal Injuries
Whiplash and Neck Injuries
Car accidents often result in whiplash and other neck injuries. The sudden jolting motion during a collision can strain the neck, leading to pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. Whiplash injuries can vary in severity, with some cases causing long-term complications.
Fractures and Broken Bones
Slip and fall accidents can lead to fractures and broken bones. If you fall on a hard surface, such as a wet floor or uneven pavement, it can result in fractures of the arms, legs, hips, or other parts of the body. These injuries may require surgical intervention and prolonged recovery periods. You do not have to endure these costs without help!
Medical malpractice is a serious issue. Sometimes, an irresponsible doctor can cause serious injury to a patient. Examples include surgical errors that lead to internal organ damage, infections acquired in healthcare settings, or medication errors resulting in adverse reactions or overdoses. Also, birth injuries causing long-term disabilities for a newborn or mother. These situations can be devastating, and erode your trust in the people who are supposed to be there to help you. It is incredibly important that they are held liable for their actions! I want to make sure hospitals and medical professionals treat all of their patients with the care they deserve!
Burns and Scarring
Product liability cases can result in burns and scarring injuries. Defective products, such as malfunctioning electrical devices or faulty household appliances, can cause fires or explosions. These incidents can lead to severe burns, disfigurement, and emotional trauma, requiring extensive medical treatment and potentially lifelong consequences. All products need to be properly labeled with warnings, and should include detailed instructions for proper use.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
Workplace accidents, particularly in industries like construction or manufacturing, can result in traumatic brain injuries. Falls from heights, being struck by falling objects, or exposure to hazardous substances can cause TBIs. These injuries can have significant cognitive, physical, and emotional effects, ranging from concussions to severe brain damage, requiring long-term rehabilitation and care.
I feel for anyone who has suffered any of these serious injuries, especially when it was not their fault. Often times, you do not know how to cope, or how to afford these drastic changes in your life. I became a personal injury lawyer to help those in need. Call me, and we’ll build a case that gets you the help you need!
Bringing In The Experts
Utilizing the expertise of life-care planners, medical professionals, and PhD economists can significantly assist in determining the damages deserved in a personal injury lawsuit. These professionals bring specialized knowledge and skills to assess the extent of the injuries, the necessary medical care, and the economic impact caused by the injury. When building a case for your injury, I consult with these professionals to make sure you get everything you need!
Life-care planners are professionals who evaluate the long-term medical and non-medical needs of an injured person. They will asses your current condition, consult with medical experts, and create a comprehensive plan for your future care and support. Life-care planners consider various factors such as ongoing medical treatments, rehabilitation, and assistive devices, home modifications. In more dire situations, they evaluate the need for long-term care facilities. Their expertise ensures that all necessary medical expenses are accounted for when calculating damages.
Medical professionals, including physicians and specialists, play a crucial role in personal injury cases. They provide expert medical opinions on the nature and extent of the injuries, the required treatments, and the prognosis for recovery. Their evaluations help establish a clear link between the accident and the injuries. This ensures that the damages sought in the lawsuit are directly attributed to the negligent actions of the responsible party.
PhD economists specialize in assessing the economic impact of personal injuries. They consider various financial factors, such as medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and the overall economic consequences of the injury. Using statistical models and economic theories, they calculate the present and future monetary value of the damages. This includes accounting for factors like inflation, interest rates, and your age and life expectancy. Their analysis ensures that the compensation sought in the lawsuit accurately reflects the economic losses you may suffer.
By involving these professionals in a personal injury lawsuit, a comprehensive and accurate assessment of damages can be achieved. Their combined expertise ensures that your economic, medical, and future care needs are taken into account, leaving little room for underestimation or oversight. This process allows you to seek appropriate compensation that considers both the immediate and long-term consequences of their injuries. It is important that you get the financial resources necessary for your recovery and future well-being.
