Common Types of Personal Injury
Personal injuries range in terms of the nature of the accident and severity of the injury. Here are some of the more common types of personal injuries cases that we typically handle.
Most personal injury cases fall under this category. Usually, when an auto accident takes place, someone isn’t following the rules of the road, or they’re driving recklessly. This results in too many car accidents every year, and the driver at fault can be held financially responsible for injuries stemming from a car accident.
Big trucks are required to follow many state and federal regulations. Truck drivers, trucking companies, truck owners and others involved in the commercial trucking industry are required to follow these rules. If a truck driver causes an accident due to violating these rules, multiple parties may be legally responsible for the harm caused.
Many motorcycle accidents are caused when other motorists fail to keep a proper lookout for these lower profile vehicles. Cars and trucks may turn in front of motorcyclists with the right-of-way. These accidents often lead to serious injuries due to the limited protection around a motorcyclist, including spinal cord injuries, fractures, severe road rash and traumatic brain injuries. Accident victims may be able to recover compensation for the injuries they sustain.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents are completely preventable. They often involve serious injuries and deaths because the drunk driver did not slow down or caused a head-on accident. An accident victim can pursue a claim against the drunk driver. Bars, restaurants, other establishments and social hosts can also be held liable under Georgia’s Dram Shop Laws for the damages sustained in a drunk driving accident if they knowingly served alcohol to a minor or intoxicated person that they knew was about to drive.
If someone dies as a result of negligent, reckless or intentional conduct, his or her spouse, children or administrator of the estate may bring a wrongful death action. This lawsuit seeks compensation for the burial and funeral expenses, the victim’s pain, and suffering, the medical bills associated with the accident, lost financial support and other economic and non-economic losses stemming from the loved one’s death. The family usually has only two years from the date of the victim’s death to bring this type of claim. This time limit can be shorter if a government agency is responsible for the death.
Catastrophic injuries involve serious injuries to the body, including amputations, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, serious fractures and other medical conditions that are expected to last for a long time or be permanent. They may be caused by different types of accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, big truck accidents, slips and falls, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents. The party who was at fault for the accident may be required to provide compensation for the full extent of the victim’s damages.
Medical malpractice claims are common when a doctor or other healthcare professional doesn’t properly provide competent and reasonably skilled care, and someone is injured because of said negligence. Medical malpractice claims tend to be much more complex.
Slip and Fall
If you've slipped and fallen due to the negligence of another party responsible for your accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Usually, property owners are liable for the conditions of their property, and it's the property owner's job to ensure that their property is safe and without hazards.
Workplace accidents happen far too often, and they are usually caused by negligence. While workplace accidents tend to be more commonplace in blue-collar jobs, workplace accidents can happen in just about any occupation. If you were injured on a work site, you may be entitled to proper compensation.
In claims regarding dog bites or attacks, the dog owner will be held responsible for any injuries caused by their dog. There is some burden of proof on the victim. One must prove that the owner’s dog is a threat or a dangerous dog. You must also be able to prove that the owner was careless with his or her dog when the injury occurred. Finally, according to Georgia law, the victim can’t have provoked the dog.
Assault, Battery & Intentional Torts
Compared to most of the other personal injury claims, intentional torts, like assault, are not accidental. These cases usually will involve the added part of a criminal case against the perpetrator.
