Millions of individuals suffer injuries every year due to someone else’s negligence. Can these individuals be compensated for their loss? A Personal injury law (also known as “tort” law) helps an injured person to receive compensation when someone else’s wrongful conduct (negligence or an intentional act) causes harm.

Let us Understand What This is.

A Personal Injury Case arises when a person suffers injuries due to negligence or unintentional actions of another person or entity. One can claim compensation for the damages and losses they have incurred.

Following are Some of the Most Common Types of Personal Injury Claims:-

Motor Vehicle Accident 

  • Occurrence – Personal injury cases often involve motor vehicle accidents, which can be further categorized into several subtypes. These include auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents and rideshare accidents.
  • Reason – These claims can be filed when one person is injured as a result of a collision caused by another driver’s negligence. This usually happens when one isn’t following the rules of the road or is not driving as carefully as they should be.
  • Claims – One can seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages caused by the accident.

Slip and Fall Cases 

  • Occurrence – Imagine being at a property or a rented apartment and you slipped due to wet floors, uneven surfaces, poorly maintained stairs, or other hazards.
  • Reason – Property owners must keep their premises safe for visitors, and if they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for the injuries sustained on their property.
  • Claims – The plaintiff can ask for compensation that they had suffered because of the injuries, these may include medical bills, lost wages and suffering.

Medical Malpractices

  • Occurrence – Medical malpractice claims can arise from cases happening due to negligence, misdiagnosis, medical errors, and other forms of medical negligence of doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other medical professionals.
  • Reasons – If a healthcare provider treats a patient that fails to meet the medical standard of care it may lead to a medical malpractice claim.
  • Claim – The patients harmed can claim compensation for their medical expenses, ongoing treatment and lost wages.

Animal Bites

  • Occurrence – In the majority of cases, the owner is held liable for any injuries or bites that had been due to the animal being petted, even if absent at the time of the attack.
  • Reasons – usually the cases filed belong to dog bites where the owner is considered responsible for the attack even if it has never shown any aggression or propensity to bite in the past.
  • Claims – victims of animal attacks or bites can claim compensation like any other personal injury.

Workplace Injury

  • Occurrence – Most injuries that occur in the workplace are covered by the insurance policy known as workers’ compensation.
  • Reasons – If an employee gets injured or dies while on the job, they usually cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act offers certain benefits to injured employees.
  • Claims – One can claim for economic damages, but not non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. If they wish to claim the latter, they have to exit the worker’s compensation system and then sue for non-economic damages.

Product Liability

  • Occurrence – This kind of claim arises when a person is injured or killed due to a defective or dangerous product. This includes anything from a malfunctioning vehicle to a defective toy.
  • Reasons -These business owners including the manufacturers, distributors, and retailers have a duty which entails them to provide safe products to consumers.
  • Claims – For this one can claim for all the injuries suffered like other compensations.

Personal injury claims act as a legal safeguard for those who have suffered injuries due to the negligence or intentional actions of others. The types of personal injury claims may vary but the major ones are medical expenses, income loss, incidental expenses, physical pain, emotional distress, and other comparable losses.
