Accidents can occur everywhere and to everyone. They can change a person’s life in an instant. Whenever an accident happens as a result of the lack of one person’s care, the other person involved has the right to file a personal injury claim against the person whose negligent acts caused the accident in the first place.
Listed below are several different types of accidents which can lead to personal injury cases.
On an annual basis, car accidents spur the highest amount of personal injury cases. Over a billion dollars is paid every year to victims of car accidents. This only goes to show car accidents as the biggest reason why so many personal injury claims are filed.
When a careless driver hits another driver, a pedestrian, a motorcyclist or a bicyclist, the victim has the right to seek compensation for the injuries sustained. This compensation usually involves payments for:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Lost wages

Believe it or not, but at least 10 people are bitten every day by dogs (in the United States alone). Since most people have dogs as pets, it is only normal that the highest amount of bites comes from these animals. Whether it is to protect their owner’s property or because they were provoked, dog bites can have negative consequences for the owner.
If the dog owner did nothing to prevent the dog from biting other people, he or she may be held responsible for their dog’s actions.
Imagine getting sick or injured, only to find yourself in even bigger problem after a doctor issued you the wrong type of medication. That, or if a surgery was performed on the wrong part of your body.
Medical malpractice cases are extremely dangerous, as they could change a person’s life for the worse, or even cause death as a result. Most victims of medical malpractice who file a successful claim end up getting a lot of money in the process.
