Types of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury cases arise when one person is injured because another person or group failed to behave with reasonable care. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases are listed below.
Transportation Accidents: These can include pedestrian, bike, car, or motorcycle collisions caused by negligent driving. Mass transit incidents, such as plane, bus, or train crashes, can also give rise to personal injury cases.
Property Liability: Sometimes public or private property is so poorly maintained that people who enter suffer mishaps, like slipping and falling on a wet floor, being hurt by falling debris, or suffering injury by being exposed to other unsafe conditions.
Malpractice: When a professional makes a mistake that others with their level of training and expertise would not make, the resulting injury may establish an actionable malpractice case. Improper medical treatment could be the basis for a medical malpractice claim, for example.
Product Liability: These cases arise when a defective product causes an injury. Instances of product liability can include car seat failures, contaminated food products, and unsafe medications.
The Stages of a Personal Injury Lawsuit
The Law Offices of Lawrence J. Signore has years of experience in personal injury matters. A personal injury case begins with a free consultation between office staff and a prospective client to determine if they have a case that could be successfully presented in court. Once the attorney-client relationship is formed, the law offices will prepare and send the necessary preliminary paperwork to file the complaint and serve the defendants in the case. Once the defendants respond, both parties will begin discovery, a pre-trial process to discover the underlying facts of the case to be presented in court. A case may be resolved through a settlement outside of the courtroom or proceed to a trial. This process takes time and requires experience and legal knowledge to navigate successfully.
