  • What Are The Most Common Accident & Injury Cases?

    Each legal personal injury action is unique. Every tort case is the result of particular circumstances.

    Accidents and injuries can happen almost anywhere. Still, some types of personal injury cases happen more often than others. 

    Some of the most frequently occurring accident injury lawsuits include:

    Traffic Collisions

    Passenger vehicle accidents are one of the most common personal injury claims. When someone operates a motor vehicle in a negligent or reckless manner, they increase the risk of injuries to those around them.

    Some of the typical types of car accidents are:

    • Rear-end collisions
    • Sideswipes
    • Head-on crashes
    • T-Bone accidents
    • Vehicle rollovers
    • Multiple car collisions
    • Side-impact crashes

    Even seemingly-insignificant car crashes can cause serious property damage to victims. Moderate and severe accidents can result in catastrophic and lifelong injuries.

    Other auto-related accidents and mishaps include:

    • Bicycle collisions
    • Motorcycle accidents
    • Pedestrian accidents

    Following a motor vehicle collision, collecting as much evidence of the crash as possible is critical. This information will help your accident injury lawyer build a strong case for you.

    If someone’s dangerous driving has caused you harm, you have the right to seek financial compensation through a personal injury action claim. The knowledgeable legal team at Morgan & Morgan will help you recover every penny of the financial recovery that you deserve.

    Medical Malpractice

    Unfortunately, medical negligence happens every day across the country. Patients have the right to trust that their physicians and surgeons will provide them with reliable care, procedures, and treatments.

    Sadly, malpractice is very common. According to research made available by the National Practitioner’s Data Bank (NPDB), there are around 60,000 medical malpractice cases annually in the U.S. 

    When you are injured as the result of inappropriate medical treatment or care, the results can be life-changing. Victims have the legal right to pursue compensation for their physical, financial, and emotional losses.

    Some of the most typical kinds of medical malpractice include:

    • Delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose
    • Misdiagnosis
    • Birthing injuries
    • Failure to provide treatment
    • Incorrect prescriptions or wrong dosage
    • Anesthesia injuries or errors
    • Surgical injuries
    • Wrong surgical site
    • Unnecessary surgeries or treatments

    Following a case of medical malpractice, it is critical to speak with a tort law firm with the resources to help you take effective personal injury action. Medical negligence cases often involve well-resourced care facilities. 

    Without the help of skilled personal injury attorneys, it’s nearly impossible to hold negligent medical care providers responsible for the damage they cause. Let our tort lawyers review the facts of your claim and fight for you.

    On-the-Job Injuries

    According to data from the National Safety Council, workplace injuries occur once every seven seconds in the United States. In many cases, injured employees are entitled to financial compensation for the costs resulting from their on-the-job accidents. 

    Business owners must provide their employees with a reasonably safe environment in which to work. Sadly, many employers do not take worker safety seriously enough.

    When employees become injured, they may be unable to earn an income or return to their previous vocation. If you have been injured while working, seek immediate medical care. 

    It is also imperative to report workplace injuries to your supervisor as soon as possible. Collect relevant evidence of the accident or damage by:

    • Taking photos or videos of the scene or injuries
    • Collecting names and contact information for those involved
    • Take notes of your own experience
    • Secure a copy of your supervisor’s accident report

    The more information and evidence you can gather, the better. In many states, injured employees are entitled to earned benefits through workers’ compensation payments.

    These earned benefits can be used to cover the costs of:

    • Current and future medical expenses
    • Lost wages and income following missed workdays
    • Temporary or permanent disability

    Unlike standard tort claims, workers’ compensation does not cover the intangible losses that occur because of an injury. For instance, you will not be able to secure compensation for your physical or mental pain and suffering.

    Taking legal personal injury action following a workplace mishap can be difficult. Because of this, securing the services of one of the compassionate legal representatives at Morgan & Morgan is vital.

    Falling Accidents

    Slip and fall accidents — and trip and fall accidents — are very common causes of personal injury claims. This is especially true for elderly individuals, who are at higher risk of harm from falling accidents.

    More than three million patients over 65 are treated in emergency rooms because of falling accidents annually. This information comes from research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    If another person caused your falling accident, you could pursue financial recovery through a personal injury action. One of the knowledgeable legal specialists at Morgan & Morgan will build a strong accident injury lawsuit on your behalf.

    Wrongful Death Claims

    When a victim of negligence sustains a fatal injury, their family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf. These cases function similarly to personal injury claims.

    If you have lost a loved one because another party acted in a negligent or reckless manner, you deserve justice. No amount of financial compensation can ever ease the grief from losing someone you love.

    Still, it is critical to hold those who cause wrongful deaths financially accountable. Some of the common damages that wrongful death claimants can recover include compensation for:

    • Funeral and burial expenses
    • The victim’s lost wages and expected earnings
    • The victim’s pain and suffering before their death
    • The family’s grief and emotional anguish
    • Loss of relationship or consortium
    • Associated property damage

    Speak with a high-quality legal specialist at the firm of Morgan & Morgan. Our team of wrongful death attorneys will guide you through the legal process in your state.

    Product Liability Cases

    Product liability cases occur when a consumer retailer or item manufacturer causes an injury to a customer. Consumers should be able to trust that the goods they purchase will not contain defects or flaws.

    When a malfunctioning consumer product causes an injury, the victim has the right to sue in civil court. There are two primary types of product defects. They are:

    • Manufacturing defects
    • Design defects

    Manufacturing defects occur during the fabrication or construction process for the item in question. This type of flaw usually only appears on a few individual items in a product line. 

    On the other hand, design defects occur at the blueprint stage of product development. Because of this, design defects may affect all items across a product line.

    Some of the commonly liable parties in these legal cases include:

    • Product manufacturers
    • Retail businesses selling faulty items
    • Wholesalers
    • Manufacturers of product components

    No matter what type of product flaw caused your injury, you have the right to seek financial recovery for the resulting damages. One of Morgan & Morgan’s compassionate legal professionals can help you stand up to negligent companies.

  • What Are Contingency Fees, and How Will They Affect My Claim?

    When you have been injured or involved in an accident, it is normal to experience skyrocketing costs and expenses. Medical bills and property damage are two of the most common examples.

    Because of these costs, many victims worry about the additional expense of hiring a tort attorney. When you contact Morgan & Morgan, you will not have to worry about this additional expense.

    We understand that accident victims are usually in difficult financial situations. That is why our firm operates through contingency fees.

    A contingency fee is a portion of the financial recovery from an accident or injury claim. With this approach to legal fees, victims do not pay anything unless their case is successfully tried or settled.

    When you hire Morgan & Morgan, you only pay if we get money for you. Never hire a disreputable firm that requires an upfront payment to take your case.

  • What Types of Compensation Can Accident Victims Claim?

    The amount of financial compensation that you can hope to recover through a legal claim will depend on the specific circumstances of the case. However, most tort claimants seek two categories of financial compensation: “special” and “general” damages.

    Special damages are financial payments meant to restore the victim’s prior financial status. In other words, these compensatory payments make up for direct monetary expenses resulting from the accident. General damages are payments to compensate for intangible, personal, or emotional losses. 

    Common examples of damages in personal injury claims are:

    • Medical costs and expenses
    • Lost wages and income
    • Pain and suffering
    • Mental distress and anguish
    • Property damage
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Disability and disfigurement
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

    Any losses or costs resulting from your injury can be sought through a legal claim. At Morgan & Morgan, our accomplished legal team has decades of experience securing the financial recovery our clients are owed.
