5 Most Common Personal Injury Cases

A severe injury's aftermath can be physically and financially painful. Luckily, if another person's negligence caused your accident, you may be able to seek financial compensation from them with a personal injury attorney. To better understand if an attorney can help your situation, the Robins Cloud LLP team put together a blog of some of the most common personal injury cases a lawyer handles.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is one of the most common personal injury claims a personal injury attorney sees. When a medical professional's negligence harms a person, they may be able to file a medical malpractice claim. To have a successful medical malpractice claim, the injured person must prove that the healthcare professional breached their duty of care and that this breach resulted in their injuries.

Product Liability

Product liability claims are a type of personal injury case where the injured person alleges that they were hurt by a product that was defective in some way. These cases can be complicated, and they often involve extensive investigation to determine whether the product was defective and, if so, whether the manufacturer or seller can be held liable.

In many product liability cases, the injured person must prove that the product was defective and that the defect was the cause of their injuries. If a defective product has injured you, you must speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you understand your options.

Auto Accidents

Car accidents are also a common type of personal injury case. Every year, thousands of people are injured or killed in car accidents in the United States.

To pursue a car accident claim, one must contact an experienced personal injury attorney. Our attorneys at Robins Cloud LLP can help you investigate the accident and gather evidence to support your claim. We can also negotiate with insurance companies to fight for the maximum compensation possible.

Wrongful Death

The purpose of this type of lawsuit is to keep compensation for any financial losses the surviving family members may face after their loved one's passing. The lawsuit also aims to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from similar behavior. It has to be filed by the decedent's personal representative, which is typically a close relative or spouse.

While no amount of money can truly make up for the loss of a loved one, filing a successful wrongful death lawsuit can help ease the financial burden on the family and provide some measure of justice.

Personal Injury

Personal injury claims are quite common. In fact, many people don't even realize that they may have a personal injury case until they speak with an attorney. There are a variety of different accidents and incidents that can lead to personal injury claims, such as car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and even medical malpractice.

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person or entity, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your rights and options and fight for the compensation you deserve.
