Personal injury attorneys represent plaintiffs who have suffered injuries in countless types of accidents. At our law firm, just when we think we’ve encountered every accident scenario imaginable, a unique factual scenario presents itself. That being said, we do see many types of accidents again and again.
Here is a sampling of some of the most common types of cases we represent:
Vehicle accident claims
Whether it’s a semitruck, passenger vehicle or motorcycle, a fast-moving vehicle is always at risk of causing an injurious accident. These risks are even higher when a negligent or unlawful driver is at the wheel.
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents involving vehicles
Pedestrians and bicyclists are especially vulnerable to suffering catastrophic injuries if they are involved in a crash caused by a negligent motor vehicle driver.
Premises liability accidents
When someone is visiting a property that belongs to someone else, he or she has the right to assume that the property owner has taken reasonable precautions to eliminate obvious dangers. Unfortunately, not all property owners exercise their duty of care in this regard, and they neglect to correct dangers relating to trip-and-fall risks, security threats, drowning risks, animal attacks and more.
Animal attack injuries
The owners of dogs, cats and other types of animals must keep their animals restrained so that they do not present a danger to others. If a dog attacks and seriously hurts someone, the owner may be financially responsible for the injuries.
These are just a few of the most common types of personal injury cases we pursue at our law firm. If you were injured in any way — and you suspect that another party’s negligence was the cause — you may want to determine whether you may have the right to pursue financial compensation in court.
