Personal injury claims can arise from a variety of accidents. Every year, distracted, negligent, or careless drivers cause thousands of accidents and injuries on the road. “Distracted driving” refers to any action that takes away from the driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle, including texting behind the wheel, eating while driving, reading a map, applying makeup, operating a GPS device, or other distraction. According to a study conducted by Car and Driver magazine, texting while driving may be more dangerous (in terms of reaction time) than driving under the influence of alcohol.
Other personal injuries may be caused by thoughtless or inattentive doctors. Medical malpractice refers to professional negligence committed by a medical professional. Medical malpractice suits may be filed after:
- A doctor misdiagnoses a serious illness, resulting in the death of a patient
- An anesthesiologist makes a careless mistake, resulting in injury or death
- A surgeon negligently hurts a patient during an operation
- A nurse administers the wrong medication or the wrong amount of the right medication, resulting in injury or illness
- A pharmacists fills a prescription incorrectly, resulting in illness, injury, or death
Any accident caused by the carelessness or negligence of another individual that results in you or a loved one being seriously injured may merit a personal injury claim. Injury cases are not limited to medical malpractice and car accidents. For instance, pet owners are obligated to warn you if their animal is dangerous. If you have been bit by a dog because its owner failed to tell you that it was vicious, the owner may be held legally responsible for your injury. In the same way, property owners who fail to warn visitors about potential hazards may be liable for any injuries a visitor sustains. If you are unsure as to whether or not your injury merits a personal injury case, talk to a lawyer form our firm right away to understand your legal rights.
