What is a Personal Injury Claim?
Typically, personal injury claims are the result of the negligence of another person. Common sources of personal injury claims include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Automobile accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Defective product claims
- Slip and fall claims
- Pedestrian claims
The term “personal injury” encompasses a broad range of injuries. Some are minor, but some injuries can be catastrophic. Most catastrophic injuries involve severe damage to the brain or spine that is often permanent. These type of serious injuries can cause life-changing disabilities with long-term consequences. Many catastrophic injuries occur in car accidents or trucking accidents, but they can happen anywhere; at work, in a slip and fall accident, on a motorcycle or in a bicycle accident.
Types of Injuries
These injuries usually require significant medical care and long-term rehabilitation therapy. Medical expenses will add up, and you may suffer a loss of income due to lost work time. You or a loved one may need specialized equipment such as a hospital bed, a wheelchair or any number of specific medical items. Injuries can include:
- Brain Injuries-concussion, head trauma, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Paralysis-severed spinal cord, paraplegia, quadriplegia, broken back
- Burn Injuries-skin grafts, plastic surgery, chemical burns, infections
- Amputation Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Fatal Injuries: may result in a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of spouses, children, and parents
