Types of Personal Injury Accidents

While no two personal injury accidents are identical, there are many common types of accidents that incur severe or catastrophic personal injuries. These include:

  • Auto and truck accidents – negligence, drunken driving, and unsafe road conditions are major causes of auto accidents. Many personal injury claims result from wrecks on roadways.
  • Medical negligence or malpractice – healthcare professionals are held to a duty of care to help us with illnesses and injuries. When medical personnel act in a negligent manner, many things can go wrong. Failure to diagnose, incorrect diagnosis, medication errors, birth injuries, surgical mishaps, as well as other medical errors can be cause for a personal injury claim.
  • Property liability – property owners must maintain their premises in a safe manner to protect visitors and tenants. Slip-and-fall accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries or broken bones. Construction sites must maintain proper barriers and abide by safety protocol to protect workers and other individuals who are near the site.
  • Product defects – consumers should be able to trust the products they buy not to cause bodily injury. When a product malfunctions, severe or catastrophic personal injuries can result.
  • Workplace accidents – every employer is required to provide a safe working environment. Personal injuries and illness can result from workplace accidents.
  • Wrongful deaths – a fatal accident caused by the negligence of another person or entity can result in a personal injury claim filed by the deceased person’s surviving family members.
