Personal Injury Law Covers Many Incidents
Motor Vehicle Accidents
This covers car wrecks, truck accidents, motorcycle crashes, and bicycle and pedestrian accidents. As long as the person operating the vehicle that injured you was negligent in some way, you could have a claim for compensation. Common issues in motor vehicle collisions include drunk driving, distracted driving, and aggressive driving.
Premises liability claims arise from a property owner’s duty to maintain a property in a way that does not endanger others. There are many ways a property owner can violate this duty.
Slippery floors, broken stairs, dark alleys, uneven surfaces, and other dangerous conditions could support a premises liability claim. Dog bites are also a form of premises liability.
Third-Party Claims and Workplace Injuries
Many injuries suffered on the job go through the workers’ compensation system. But in some of these cases, the injury could be caused by someone other than the employer or the employee.
Third-party claims are workplace personal injury lawsuits that involve more than just an employer and employee, such as a motor vehicle collision involving a commercial driver hurt by a random person’s negligence. The third-party claim helps the injured worker collect compensation to maximize recovery.
Product liability cases are a type of personal injury that involve unsafe commercial products, or goods. The product can be anything from over-the-counter medication to a car or industrial machine. If a product is not properly manufactured or marketed and someone is injured as a result, the victim deserves maximum compensation.
When negligence leads to fatal injuries, a wrongful death suit can help surviving family members hold the negligent person or persons accountable. Wrongful death cases can involve different types of compensation from other personal injury claims. Any fatal accident in Texas should be carefully reviewed by an attorney to see whether the surviving loved ones have the right to compensation.
Trial or Negotiated Settlement
The majority of personal injury cases are settled out of court. It’s generally preferable to get what you deserve as quickly as possible through a negotiated settlement. However, insurance companies may be unwilling to offer you a fair deal if they see that you have no legal representation to fight for you. An experienced lawyer will help you determine the most effective course of action for your unique case.
