If you have been injured in an accident as the result of someone else's negligence (wrongdoing), you are entitled to receive financial compensation for your injury. This compensation includes consideration of your lost wages, medical bills, disfigurement, scarring and pain and suffering that result from the accident.
The types of accidents that give rise to personal injury claims include:
- Dog bites/dog attacks
Were You Injured At Work?
You may have been injured at work, which gives rise to a workers' compensation claim. In some situations, injuries that arise in the course of one's employment are caused by the fault of a third person, such as an automobile accident while driving for your employer. Or you may be injured in a slip-and-fall accident at work caused by an outside company hired by your employer. In either case, the injured worker would be entitled to benefits under workers' compensation law and may also have a personal injury claim against the third party.
People can suffer numerous types of injuries as a result of an accident, all with their own medical terminology, specialists and treatment. Examples include:
- Orthopedic injuries such as broken bones and herniated disks of the spinal cord
- Soft tissue injures such as sprains and strains
- Neurological injuries such as nerve damage
- Head injuries such as concussions and subdural hematomas
- Burn injuries
