When two or more cars are involved in a collision, an individual who is injured may be able to seek monetary compensation for his or her expenses through a personal injury claim. Individuals who are injured in car accidents involving pedestrians or stationary objects are entitled to seek compensation as well. Car accidents are on of the most common ways people are injured in the United States. If you have been injured in a car accident, even if the accident was partially your fault, seek legal representation to determine whether you are entitled to file a personal injury claim for your damages.
Thousands of commercial trucks, both tractor trailers and small trucks, travel on America’s roadways every single day. These vehicles are not like passenger cars and pickup trucks. They are considerably larger in size and have a different center of gravity, meaning that a collision with a commercial truck can cause much greater damage than a collision with another car. Filing an insurance claim after this type of collision is also different than filing a personal injury claim in a car accident. Unlike individuals driving personal vehicles, truck drivers have commercial insurance policies. This means that the process for seeking compensation for injuries sustained in an accident involving a commercial truck can be different from seeking compensation following a car accident.
There are a lot of ways to become injured while riding a motorcycle, even if you follow all safety guidelines, such as wearing a helmet and reflective clothing. Like with a car accident, you can seek monetary compensation for an injury sustained in an accident involving another driver. As a motorcyclist, you are more likely to be injured by a roadway hazard than an individual driving a car. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, provide your attorney with a comprehensive body of evidence for your accident and your following medical treatment that he or she can use to develop and file your claim.
SLIP AND FALL
Slip and fall accidents can happen nearly anywhere. A broken sidewalk, a slippery rock, a pile of fallen leaves, or a freshly-mopped floor can all lead to an injury-causing fall for an innocent individual. When you are injured by this type of hazard, you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for your damanges through a premises liability claim. The owner of the property where you were injured has what is known as “premises liability,” which is the responsibility to take all necessary steps to ensure that his or her property is free of potential hazards. A slip or a fall can lead to a variety of injuries: broken bones, slipped disks, and head injuries are just a few of the ways you can be hurt in this type of accident.
