What is a personal injury case?
A personal injury case is when another individual or corporate entity acts in a negligent manner. Negligence refers to the failure of someone to use the care that a reasonable person would use in the same situation.
Common personal injury case examples:
- Medical Malpractice
When doctors and hospitals commit negligent errors, such as surgical mistakes or incorrect diagnoses, they often result in the harm of a patient. In these situations, the responsible party may be held liable for damages. If a patient dies from a careless medical error, relatives of the deceased may bring a wrongful death suit against the doctors and hospitals involved.
- Dangerous Drugs
If a pharmaceutical company fails to alert the FDA and/or consumers of dangerous defects in their drugs, the company is liable for the consequences. If an individual dies as a result of taking a defective drug, a wrongful death suit may be filed and the company held accountable.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
You’re loved one was the victim of an accident caused by an intoxicated driver, an over-worked truck driver, or a reckless motorcyclist.
