Types of personal injury cases we take on

A personal injury lawyer from Douglas & London stands ready to take on a variety of personal injury claims, including:

  • Defective products: When a consumer or industrial product is flawed, it can result in a severe injury. Commonly defective products include children’s toys, industrial machines, food, cars, and kitchen appliances.
  • Car accidents: Due to the tremendous impact that can occur in a vehicle collision, personal injury lawsuits commonly result from car accident-related injuries.
  • Premises liability: When you suffer an injury due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, you could have a viable premises liability claim. Your chances of recovery depend on whether you had a right to be on the property or not, so you might benefit from discussing your options with a personal injury attorney to learn about the strength of your claim.
  • Dangerous drugs and medical devices: Due to the vulnerable position of patients, a flawed medication or medical device can have devastating consequences. These injuries can lead to a lifetime of health complications and, in some cases, the injuries are fatal.
  • Medical malpractice: While East Harlem doctors take an oath not to harm their patients, the reality is that medical mistakes happen every day. When a health professional makes the wrong diagnosis or injures a patient during surgery, the consequences can last a lifetime.

Common injuries in a personal injury lawsuit

No two personal injury cases are the same. Whether the basis of a personal injury claim stems from a car accident, product defect, or even a violent crime, the injuries that result from these incidents can be serious, and can include:

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Internal bleeding
  • Nerve damage
  • Brain injuries, including concussions
  • Neck injuries, including whiplash
  • Burns
  • Damaged tendons and ligaments
