Numerous circumstances can lead to personal injuries. Car accidents can render both motorists and their automobiles immobile. The most able-footed person can fall on a slippery fall. Over-the-counter or prescription medications can do more harm than good.
Regardless of the origin of the injury, those who have suffered harm have rights, and they have a means to seek redress from the people whose negligence caused their suffering.
Personal injury Accidents can result in any of the following:
Automobile accidents : includes accidents that involve large trucks, motorcycles, and passenger cars, and can be the result of either driver negligence or dangerous road conditions (in which negligence falls on the shoulders on local city governments for improper maintenance of traffic roads and signals)
Reckless/lax upkeep of property : includes premises liability, which can take the form of decrepit building structures that are unsafe to be in or around, or even harm caused to a person while on another person's property, such as dog bites or other hazards that the property owner is ultimately responsible.
Medical malpractice : includes accidents that are inherently caused by some action made during medical practice, and can include the prescription of improper medication that has a negative effect on its user, poor execution of a medical procedure that makes the person’s condition worse, or even reckless tactics used during childbirth that can result in birth injury and other debilitating conditions for the child
Product Defects : includes any product that causes its user harm as a result of either faulty design, lack of safety guidelines given, or improper usage, and can range from common household products to children's toys to motorized vehicles, such as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs); basically, any product that can be sold is at risk of defect and bringing about harm to an unsuspecting consumer
