What Qualifies as a Personal Injury Claim

A personal injury case occurs when a person sustains an injury due to the misconduct of another person. The most common types of personal injury claims are:

  • motor vehicle accidents

  • slip and falls

  • animal bites and attacks

  • medical malpractice, and;

  • product liability

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury claims, which include automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and incidences involving Uber/Lyft. You can make a claim whether you are a driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist, or motorcyclist.

There are two major portions to each case: liability, or who is responsible for the accident, and damages, which include physical injury and financial loss. If it can be proven the other party was at fault, you may receive compensation for damages suffered.

Injuries sustained by our clients encompass more than just a broken or fractured bone. We help those with whiplash, spinal cord injuries, and concussions, amongst many others. Some people suffer relatively minor injuries, while others have catastrophic losses. Sometimes, an injury may appear to be minor, but the damage can be much worse than originally anticipated. This is why it is important to speak to an experienced attorney.
