Types of Personal Injury Claims
Some common personal injury claims include:
- Defective Products:
- There are three different ways a product might be considered defective. The general design of the product may be flawed, or there may have been defects during the manufacturing process. Additionally, a product may lack sufficient instructions or warnings regarding appropriate use. Defects can make vehicles, children’s toys, and kitchen appliances dangerous.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents:
- Accidents involving cars, trucks, or other motor vehicles are typically the fault of one or more drivers. Driving while distracted or under the influence, or just reckless driving in general, can all result in a serious accident and injuries for anyone involved.
- Premises Liability:
- Premises liability claims involve injuries that occur on another party’s property, usually due to the property owner’s negligence in maintaining the property. Premises liability claims can include
slip and fall accidents, which can occur in a business such as a grocery store or shopping mall, or on a homeowner’s property. These claims can also include dog bites and swimming pool accidents.
- Dangerous Drugs and Defective Medical Devices:
- Manufacturers of prescription drugs and medical devices have a duty to make products that are safe. Unfortunately, negligence does occur on the part of manufacturers and other parties.
Dangerous drugs can have serious adverse effects, including the development of illnesses or diseases, birth defects, and deformities. Defective medical devices can result in a multitude of injuries that usually require additional surgeries.
- Medical Malpractice:
- Medical malpractice lawsuits involve injuries resulting from the negligence of a medical professional, such as a doctor, surgeon, or nurse. Medical malpractice claims may include surgical errors, such as operating on the wrong part of the body; medication errors, including giving the wrong medication or wrong dose; and general hospital errors, such as contracting an infection due to a contaminated environment.
