Were you or your loved one injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness? Maybe you’re dealing with medical bills or you lost time from work because of your injuries. 

Common types of personal injury cases include car or truck accidents, workplace incidents, and product defects. Types of injuries in personal injury cases include neck and back trauma, burns, amputations, fractures, and any serious injury stemming from someone else’s negligence. 

The key qualification for personal injury cases is that someone did something or failed to do something, and as a result, you or your loved one was injured and suffered damages. Your personal injury attorney can answer any questions you may have about whether your case qualifies and help you navigate the next steps. 

Vehicle Accidents

In both 2020 and 2019, there were just under 4,000 fatalities each year from traffic accidents involving motor vehicles.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, in 2020 there was not one single day without a death on the state’s roadways. Of those deaths, just under 500 were motorcycle riders, and one in five were pedestrians.

Whether you were the driver, passenger, or pedestrian harmed in a motor vehicle accident, a personal injury lawsuit can compensate you for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. 

Wrongful Death

When a loved one dies as a result of someone’s carelessness, their family can bring a wrongful death lawsuit. It allows the family to recover for such things as funeral expenses, medical bills, compensation for the lost income, and loss of companionship. 

Workplace Accidents

If you were injured on the job, you might be entitled to financial relief for your medical expenses and time away from work. Compensation for workplace injuries usually comes from workers’ compensation.

Children’s Injuries 

If your child is being bullied or harassed and the school fails to address the issue, it might be liable for any injuries your child suffers as a result. Children have suffered serious injuries and even suicide as a result of bullying.

Other child injuries can happen from car and bicycle accidents or sexual assault. If someone injured your child, you can file a personal injury claim to hold the other party accountable.

Product Defects

Product defect injuries happen from defects in the design or manufacturing of a product or where a company fails to properly warn of their product’s dangerousness.

Some examples of defective items that have caused harm to people include airbags, asbestos, household chemicals, children’s toys, and recalled cars.
