Most Common Types of Personal Injuries 

Here are five of the most common types of personal injuries:

  1. Car Accidents: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are six million car accidents in the United States every year. Car accidents can be caused by many things, including texting while driving, driving under the influence, poor road conditions, and more. 
  2. Slip and Fall Accidents: Slip and fall accidents are also very common and can occur anywhere, from a grocery store to a friend’s house. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to know that you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. 
  3. Dog Bites: Dog bites can cause serious injuries, including infection, scarring, and nerve damage. If you have been bitten by a dog, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. 
  4. Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional makes a mistake that causes injury or death to a patient. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of medical malpractice, then you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. 
  5. Product Liability: Have you ever been injured by a defective product? If so, then you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer or seller of the defective product. Product liability claims can be complex, so it is important to consult with an experienced attorney if you have been injured by a defective product. 

These are just five of the most common types of personal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness, then you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

  • How to Know if You Have a Case for a Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Fall?

    A serious heel injury can sideline anyone, whether you’re a professional athlete or just somebody who likes to stay active. And if the fall that caused your injury wasn’t your fault, you may be wondering if you have a case for a personal injury lawsuit. Here’s what you need to know.

    To sue somebody for personal injuries, there are four elements that must be present: duty, breach, causation, and damages. 

    Duty: The first question is whether the person you want to sue had a duty to keep you safe from harm. For example, property owners have a duty to keep their premises free of dangers that could cause someone to slip and fall. Businesses have a duty to make sure their products are safe for consumers to use. And car manufacturers have a duty to make sure their vehicles are free of defects that could cause an accident. If there is no duty, then there can be no case. 

    Breach: The second question is whether the person you want to sue breached their duty by acting (or failing to act) in a way that resulted in your fall and injury. For example, if you slipped on a wet floor at the grocery store and hurt your heel, the store would only be liable if they knew (or should have known) about the slippery floor and failed to clean it up or warn customers about it. If the store didn’t know about the slippery floor or cleaned it up as soon as they found out about it, then they would likely not be liable for your injuries. 

    Causation: Even if the person you want to sue did breach their duty, there must be a causal link between that breach and your injury. In other words, your fall must have been caused by the breach in order for you to recover damages. 

    For example, if you were injured in slip and fall caused by broken stairs, then you would only be able to sue the property owner if it can be proven that the broken stairs caused your accident. If the accident was caused by something else (e.g., bad weather or your own negligence), then the property owner would not be liable. 

    Damages: Finally, even if all of the above elements are present, you can only sue for personal injuries if you suffered some sort of damage as a result of your fall. This could include medical expenses, lost wages from being unable to work, pain and suffering, or other damages. If you did not suffer any damages (i.e., you fell but were not injured), then you will not be able to recover anything from the person who allegedly caused your fall—even if they did breach their duty and causation is clear.

  • Why a Personal Injury Lawyer Is Important After a Heel Injury From a Fall?

    Heel injuries from falls are unfortunately common, and they can have a lasting impact on your life. If you've suffered a heel injury from a fall, you may be wondering if you need to hire a personal injury lawyer. The answer is yes. Here's why.

    1. The first reason you need to hire a personal injury lawyer after a heel injury from a fall is that insurance companies are not on your side. Insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible on claims, and they will use any tactic they can to devalue or deny your claim. A personal injury lawyer will level the playing field and make sure that you're getting the full value of your claim.
    2. The second reason you need to hire a personal injury lawyer after a heel injury from a fall is that lawsuits can be complex. If you try to file a lawsuit on your own, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the legal process. A personal injury lawyer will help simplify things and make sure that your case is strong.
    3. Finally, you need to hire a personal injury lawyer after a heel injury from a fall so you can make sure you get the best possible outcome. A personal injury lawyer will fight for you and make sure that you're getting the compensation you deserve. They'll also work with medical professionals to get you the treatment you need so that you can make a full recovery. 
  • What Damages Can I Recover?

    If you're reading this, then you or someone you know may have suffered a heel injury, and you're wondering what kind of legal recourse is available. Here are the most common types of damages available after a heel injury.

    Medical Bills

    Perhaps the most obvious type of damage that can be recovered in a heel injury lawsuit is medical bills. If you've had to miss work or incur additional medical expenses because of your injury, then you may be entitled to reimbursement for those costs. Be sure to keep all of your medical records and receipts so that your attorney can build a strong case for damages.

    Lost Wages

    Along with medical bills, another common type of damage recovered in a heel injury lawsuit is lost wages. If your injury has prevented you from working or has forced you to take a lower-paying job, then you may be awarded lost wages as part of your damage award. Once again, be sure to keep good records of your work history and earnings so that your attorney can accurately calculate your lost wages.

    Pain and Suffering

    Finally, one of the most common types of damages awarded in a heel injury lawsuit is pain and suffering. This type of damage compensates you for the physical pain and emotional suffering that you've endured because of your injury. While there's no exact formula for calculating pain and suffering damages, your attorney will use factors like the severity of your injuries, the length of your recovery, and any permanent disability caused by your injuries when determining the amount of your damage award.

  • What Is the Statute of Limitations for Heel Injury Lawsuits?

    The statute of limitations is the time frame that you have to file a lawsuit. After this time period has lapsed, you will no longer be able to file a claim. The amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim varies from state to state, so it is important to check with an attorney in your state to find out the specific time frame.

    Many states have a two-year statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims, but some states are as little as one year and some are as long as six years. There are also some exceptions to the general statute of limitations.

    For example, if the defendant is a government entity, you may have as little as 6 months to file a claim. If you were injured as a minor, the statute of limitations may not start until you turn 18 years old.

    While 2 or more years may seem like a long time, it’s important not to wait too long to speak with an attorney about your case. The sooner you do, the sooner they can begin investigating and gathering evidence so that they can build a strong case on your behalf.  Waiting too long may also result in witnesses forgetting what they saw or key pieces of evidence being lost or destroyed. So, if you’ve been injured in an accident, don’t wait—contact an experienced personal injury lawyer today.
