Why Personal Injury Happens
Personal injury can occur for many reasons, including:
- Accidents at work
- Traffic accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Faulty products
- Defective repairs
- Medical mistakes
- Slip and fall injuries
- Wrongful death
- Birth injuries
- Boating Accidents
- Animal Attacks
Personal Injury may be physical or psychological but, to file a lawsuit, the injury must occur because of another’s negligence or being ‘unreasonably’ unsafe. The term ‘unreasonable’ refers to someone who causes an injury because they failed to take proper safety measures. In other words, if you dive into a pool where signs are clearly posted saying “No Diving,” and you suffer injury as a result, you may not have a case, since the property owner took reasonable precautions to safeguard you by posting signs you ultimately ignored.
Examples of common personal injury law cases include:
