Not All Injuries Are Caused By “Accidents”
As we all know, life is full of dangers big and small, and from the first time we scrape our knee as a child, we know that injuries are a part of life as well. But not all injuries can be cured with a Band-Aid and not all dangers are unavoidable. Sometimes, the carelessness, recklessness, or negligence of someone else causes serious injuries and tremendous suffering for people whose lives become upended as a result.
When an injury is caused by someone else’s action or inaction, it means that they may have a legal obligation to compensate you for your injuries and the expenses and losses you’ve incurred as a result. Understandably, in the aftermath of such an injury, your immediate focus is on your health and recovery. But it is important that you consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible in order to ensure that your rights and any claims to compensation that you may have are not lost.
A Serious Injury Can Happen Anytime, Anywhere
There are many ways and many places where you may suffer an injury that may be the basis of a claim for compensation. Some of the more common are:
- Automobile, motorcycle, and ATV accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Slips and falls or trips and falls
- Poorly maintained or dangerous property (premises liability)
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Medical malpractice
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Dog bites
- Defective products
- Wrongful death
Injuries can range from broken bones or burns to serious brain and spinal cord injuries. The challenges can range from inconvenience to missed work to the inability to perform the functions of everyday life. The costs can be huge medical and rehabilitation bills, lost wages, and a whole range of other expenses incurred as a result of someone else’s carelessness.
You don’t have to suffer alone. I can help.
