Other common personal injury claims

Of course, there are many ways in which you can be injured that have nothing to do with a motor vehicle accident. Here are some of the most common personal injury claims our team deals with:

Slip-and-fall accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents are notoriously common and can cause shockingly serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. When they occur on someone else's property, victims can often recover compensation for their accident-related losses. Common locations for slip-and-fall accidents include grocery stores, parking lots, shopping malls, schools, and offices.

Bicycle accidents

Bicycle accidents occur all too often. When a negligent motorist hits a cyclist, it is invariably the cyclist who is left with serious injuries. Fortunately, in many cases, injured cyclists can recover compensation from the driver’s insurance policy or take them to court.

Dog bites

Dog bites are capable of causing extremely serious injuries, including lacerations and broken bones. In many cases, victims develop a fear of dogs that can have a negative impact on their daily lives. Under California’s dog bite laws, victims can often obtain compensation from the owners of dogs that bite.

Premises liability claims

When people are injured on the property of others because of hazardous conditions or malfunctioning equipment, they can often recover compensation through a premises liability claim. Common premises liability claims include those related to faulty escalators and elevators, toxic exposure, fires, explosions, and fall hazards.

Defective products

Defective products cause millions of injuries each year. In many cases, these injuries are caused by consumer products that you would not even begin to think could be dangerous. These claims are based on defective product design, defective product manufacturing, or a failure to warn consumers about a non-obvious danger posed by a product. Some examples of products that can cause serious injuries include appliances, electronics, cosmetics, personal hygiene products, furniture, vehicles, toys, baby products, and recreational equipment.

The personal injury claim process

After an injury, you might have an idea that you deserve compensation for your losses, but it can be difficult to know just how to go about obtaining that compensation. It is important to have the help of an experienced attorney as early on in the process as possible to ensure your rights are protected.

The personal injury process often begins with an insurance claim. This claim can be against another driver, a company, a property owner, or another negligent party. It is important to have an attorney handling the insurance process, as insurance companies will work to minimize any payments to claimants.

If the insurance company does not offer a fair settlement, your lawyer can take the matter to court by filing a personal injury lawsuit. A little-known fact is that the overwhelming majority of personal injury claims are resolved through the settlement process during litigation, before the case makes it to trial. This means that victims and their lawyers negotiate an amount that covers the injury victim’s losses, which can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disabilities and disfigurement
