Personal injury claims, from unsafe drug lawsuits to whiplash injury claims, are common practice these days. Whenever an accident or injury occurs in which you can prove you were not at fault, you are often entitled to legal compensation. Following you’ll find nine of the most typical claims for personal injury normally filed:
1: Car accidents. Motor vehicles are by far the most common method of transport that we use – and our roads are insanely congested as a result. It’s an environment just begging to breed accidents. So there is little wonder that so many personal injury claims are resultant from car accidents.
2: Defective or incorrectly represented products. Damages awarded as a result of the purchase and use of defective or unsafe products are also high. The controlling interests in a manufacturing firm – management and owners – are ultimately responsible for the injuries caused by the goods that company makes. If you are injured by a defective product your case will be brought against the company that made it.
3: Unsafe drug lawsuits. Drugs are legally considered to be a product – they are manufactured and you pay for them. If those drugs are contaminated or in other ways fall below the safety standards required of them, you can file a personal injury lawsuit (unsafe drug lawsuits) against the manufacturer. A wider lawsuit may also be pressed in this case.
4: Slip, trip or fall. If you fall over, you can sue someone for it. Wherever a slip, trip or fall is demonstrably the result of negligence on someone else’s part (like raised flagstones on a city street, or an oil slick outside a mechanic’s shop), you can file for a suit against the person or persons responsible for the upkeep of the area. Medical reports and assessment on the extent to which your quality of life has been affected will determine the payout.
5: Medical malpractice. If you can prove that doctors, nurses and other medical professionals or institutions failed to give you the care you needed or were entitled to, then you can file suit for malpractice.
6: Misdiagnosis is another big cause of medical claims. If a diagnosis fails to spot your real medical problem, then you can sue your doctor or his or her practice for aggravating your health issue.
7: Intentional injury. If you can prove that someone intended you harm, and did you harm, then you can sue them for damages. This is called an intentional injury suit and is often filed by victims of ABH and GBH. You can also sue if someone intended to hurt someone else (like by booby trapping a door) but hurt you by accident instead.
8: Dog bites and animal inflicted wounds. Pets’ behaviour is technically the responsibility of their owners. That means, if your pet hurts someone else or something they own, then you can be sued for failing to take proper care of your animal.
So Negligence is general term, which applies basically to anything someone should have done,. But didn’t, the final result of which was injury to another person. If someone fails to spot that their actions could harm others, and those actions do harm others, then that person can be sued.
