Different Types of Personal Injury Claims and Why You Need an Attorney

There are so many different types of personal injury claims and many of them are extremely complex. For that reason, we recommend getting help from a reputable attorney whenever you have a potential personal injury claim. Most experienced personal injury attorneys are willing to sit down with you, evaluate the facts of your case and tell you whether your set of circumstances meets the criteria to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice comes into play when a doctor, nurse or staff member acts negligently or purposefully does something wrong and that action results in an injury, worsening of an illness or condition. In some cases, disability or death can result from a medical provider’s negligence. It is important to note that just because someone is hurt, or even killed, while under the care of a medical provider, that does not necessarily mean that medical malpractice occurred. In many case, the doctors do everything right and the patient may still suffer additional complications or even death.

Accordingly, if you believe you may have a medical malpractice claim, your first step should always be to collect the documentation from the doctor or hospital and consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can assess whether or not you have a medical malpractice claim.

Car Accident

If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a car accident, you may be thinking about filing a case against the other party. Unfortunately, the facts don’t always support filing a claim. You will need to prove, during your settlement talks or at trial, that the actions of the other party caused the accident and your injuries. You need a lawyer to evaluate the facts of your claim to determine whether you have a case.

Slip and Fall

Slip and fall incidents can result in serious and permanent injuries. You may be embarrassed about the situation and reluctant to pursue a claim. However, you should not be. If you were injured while on the premises of a business or another person and the injury was caused by that person’s negligence, you have a right to recover damages for your past and future medical expenses, the time you had to take off work, and the pain that you suffered, among other things. If your injury was severe, you may be entitled to a significant settlement. For that reason, it is always good to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer who handles slip and fall claims. Let your attorney asses the facts to determine whether it is worth pursuing.
