Why File A Personal Injury Claim

When a person is injured due to someone else’s negligence, reckless behavior, or mistake, it can lead to costly medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and even permanent disabilities. It’s due to the serious impact an accident can have on a person’s way of life that personal injury lawsuits are filed in an effort to reduce the damages and loss a victim encounters in these scenarios.

There are many different types of injuries and accident cases that are the basis for personal injury claims in Rockford, IL and across the country. Some of the most common types of personal injuries are listed below.

6 Examples of Personal Injury Cases

Common types of personal injury cases include the following:

  1. Auto Accidents – Car accidents are one of the most common causes of serious injuries and death in our nation. People involved in motor vehicle accidents often file personal injury claims.
  2. Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcycle accidents are also extremely common, and unfortunately, they usually result in more serious injuries and are more likely to result in death than auto accidents.
  3. Work Injury – When someone is injured at work they usually qualify for worker’s compensation. However, when a victim struggles to obtain these benefits, or what they are awarded isn’t enough to cover the total cost of damages, they may need to file a personal injury claim.
  4. Product Liability – Many individuals are injured by products every year, which leaves manufacturers, and even some retailers, liable for the injuries caused to consumers. This can include everything from children’s toys, cribs and strollers, to power tools and pharmaceuticals.
  5. Medical Malpractice – Unfortunately, mistakes made by medical professionals and medical institutions are common causes of personal injury and wrongful death. These lawsuits are filed under medical malpractice or medical negligence.
  6. Slip and Fall Accidents – Slip and fall personal injury cases are incredibly common in the field of personal injury law, especially for elderly individuals. They are usually filed under the category of premises liability.
