KNOW THE INJURY PROCESS

A typical injury case is a personal injury lawsuit and usually involves two parties, one of which is the plaintiff or injured party. The party that the lawsuit is brought against is the defendant. A defendant is often a corporation, business or an individual.

Caddell Reynolds will research more than one party and may involve multiple parties in a single lawsuit. Personal injury lawsuits are civil court proceedings rather than criminal suits. The injured party usually seeks remedies for their damages. Caddell Reynolds usually resolves these cases through litigation, but resolutions may occur out of court as well.

4 Common Personal Injury Claims That Call for a Lawsuit (With Illustrations)

 

What Types of Injuries Need a Lawsuit?

While accidents happen, certain personal injuries may call for legal action. A personal injury lawyer in Arkansas can negotiate a fair settlement, or file a lawsuit on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve. Before you file a lawsuit, review the following common personal injury claims to get an idea of what constitutes a valid case.

  1. AUTO ACCIDENTS

Motor vehicle accidents rank at the top of the list of common personal injury claims in the U.S. Accidents can cause a variety of injuries, some life-threatening others debilitating. Collisions involving tractor trailers, buses, and motorcycles carry a greater risk of severe injury due to differences in vehicle weight and momentum. If you were involved in an auto accident, you may have a personal injury case if you suffered one or more of the following injuries:

  • Neck, back, or spinal injuries
  • Broken ribs or collapsed lungs
  • Brain and head injuries
  • Internal organ injuries

You may also have a claim if the accident was caused by a defective airbag, tire, seatbelt, or another part of the vehicle. Contact an experienced Arkansas automobile accident attorney for more information.

  1. MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Another common and often complex type of personal injury is medical malpractice. This refers to a case when a patient is harmed or injured due to negligence or failure to provide adequate care on part of the health care provider, such as a doctor, dentist, nurse, etc. Medical malpractice cases are complicated due to the fact that mistakes happen and not every injury or illness can be treated successfully, even with the most skilled practitioner or the most advanced technology. If you believe that your injury resulted from your physician’s negligence, you may have a valid personal injury claim.

Due to the complex nature of these cases, it is recommended that you consult an experienced medical malpractice attorney to help you prove your claim and secure compensation for your pain and suffering.

  1. SLIPS AND FALLS

Falls can occur due to countless circumstances, including many that may validate a personal injury lawsuit claim. Property owners and employers have an obligation to ensure a safe environment for all people who set foot on their property. This includes complying with all safety laws, repairing potential safety issues, installing safeguards, and placing clear warning signs to alert people to potential hazards.

However, it is important to note that not all accidents that occur on another person’s or organization’s property is justifiably the owner’s fault. If you have been injured in a slip and fall case and believe you deserve compensation, make sure to have an experienced personal injury lawyer in Arkansas on your side.

  1. WRONGFUL DEATH

A wrongful death claim can arise from many other types of common personal injury claims, including the three listed above. The difference lies in the potential compensation awarded by a judge or jury. Because the victim cannot collect damages, the victim’s family, estate, or other valid entity is eligible to receive compensation from the party at fault. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help your family navigate this emotionally trying time and receive all entitled damages.
