Types of personal injury claims
If you or someone you love has been hurt because of another person's negligence, recklessness, or illegal or wrongful conduct, you should not have to bear the costs of your recovery. Personal injury claims seek to compensate injury victims for economic damages, such medical expenses, property damage and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and mental anguish. A wide range of incidents and circumstances may give rise to a personal injury claim, including but not limited to:
- Auto Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- ATV accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Boating accidents
- Drowning accidents
- Slips and falls and trips and falls (premises liability)
- Dog bites
- Industrial accidents
- School accidents
- Dangerous and defective products
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Medical malpractice
While some personal injury claims are based on another person's recklessness, wrongdoing or illegal act, most personal injury lawsuits are based on a theory of negligence. For purposes of legal claims, negligence is generally when a person or entity breaches a duty they owe to you as a consumer; for example, the duty to drive safely, the duty to supervise children while they are at school, or the duty to maintain a safe environment for shoppers and restaurant diners.
In order to sustain a successful legal claim for negligence, there must be an injury or damages and someone must have committed a negligent act. The act may be a positive act, such as rear-ending another driver, or an act of omission, such as a failing to clean up a spill at a grocery store. There are also types of professional negligence that may give rise to a personal injury claim involving medical malpractice or nursing home abuse, as well as negligence in manufacturing, producing and distributing safe products to the consuming public, which may give rise to a products liability claim.
At The Barkett Law Firm, we possess the legal skill and resources to handle even the most serious personal injury claims—those that involve catastrophic injuries, such as paralysis and head injuries, or even wrongful death.
