8 of the Most Common Personal Injury Cases We Handle
As you probably know, the Law Office of Burroughs & Capps specializes in personal injury law. We represent people who have been injured or died due to negligence in a variety of circumstances. There are several types of cases we can help you with, and we want to share some we see all the time. Here are 8 of the most common personal injury cases we represent:
1. Car Accidents
Car accidents happen every single day, and, unfortunately, many people are seriously injured in these accidents. Due to being in a car accident, people can find themselves overloaded with medical bills, lost wages, and a damaged vehicle. You don’t have to navigate this kind of accident alone when you contact one of our personal injury lawyers. We will help you get compensation to cover these expenses after being injured in a car accident.
2. Motorcycle Accidents
One type of personal injury case we see everyday is motorcycle accidents. These accidents are similar to other motor vehicle accidents because you can sustain serious injuries that prevent you from being able to work, result in medical bills, and your motorcycle may be severely damaged. Our experienced lawyers are able to help you through this type of case and get the compensation you deserve.
3. Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents may seem like they would be similar to car or motorcycle accidents, but things are a little more involved with these kinds of personal injury cases. Semi trucks are held to a different standard than personal passenger vehicles due to the regulations and laws they must follow. Plus, injuries sustained in a trucking accident tend to be far worse compared to other types of motor vehicle accidents.
4. Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Some injuries you may not immediately think of when it comes to personal injury cases are dog bites and animal attacks. If you are attacked by someone else’s animal, you may have a valid personal injury claim against them, especially if it results in severe injuries or medical bills.
5. Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse is another type of personal injury claim people may not think of immediately. This type of negligence could include physical abuse, psychological abuse, unsanitary living conditions, and much more. We will work with you to get the compensation you and your loved ones deserve if they have been a victim of nursing home abuse.
6. Medical Malpractice
Another type of case we represent is medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals do not follow their duty of faith to provide you with the best care of their ability. This could include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgery on the wrong body part, unnecessary surgery, failure to treat, prescription drug errors, and much more. If you are unsure if you have been a victim of medical malpractice, one of our personal injury lawyers can speak with you more about your case.
7. Insurance Bad Faith
After you’ve been in an accident, you typically must speak with your own insurance company. However, not all insurance companies help their customers the way they should. This is known as bad faith insurance, which is a type of personal injury claim. These cases can happen with any kind of insurance policy, and our lawyers can tell you if you have a valid case for bad faith insurance.
8. Wrongful Death
Another common type of case we represent is wrongful death. This kind of case can happen as a result of these other cases, where someone is seriously injured due to negligence, and it results in their death. Spouses, children, and other family members can receive compensation for the loss of their loved one and have various kinds of expenses covered in this type of lawsuit.
These are only some of the common personal injury cases we represent. Do you believe you have a personal injury claim? Contact one of our lawyers today to discuss your case.
