Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is a practice area that focuses on individuals who have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another person or party. While an experienced personal injury attorney can help you gain compensation for your injuries, it is important to educate yourself on the most common causes of personal injury:
- Automobile Accidents
Research by the United States Census Bureau shows that there were approximately 10.8 million motor vehicle accidents in 2009 alone. While the numbers have changed slightly over the years, car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents are still among the most common causes of personal injury claims. Automobile accidents may lead to a number of personal injuries including whiplash, broken bones, herniated spinal discs, and traumatic brain injuries.
- Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents are usually the result of unruly weather conditions, slippery flooring, uneven floor surfaces, or inadequate warning signs near potential hazards or obstacles. Slip and fall accidents may lead to bruises, lacerations, broken bones, and spinal conditions.
- Defective Products
A product or device may lead to personal injury in the event that there is a defect in the production, design, or assembly of the product. Defective products may also include products with inadequate warning labels or instructions.
- Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice refers to any medical treatment provided to an individual that leads to injury or harm. This includes mistakes made during treatment, improper diagnosis, and the inappropriate dispensing of prescription medications.
