What are Some Examples of Common Injuries That Qualify for Personal Injury Claims?
The following list provides a brief overview of some of the most common types of injuries that qualify for personal injury claims.
- Car Accidents. Across the country, there are millions of cars on the road. Because of the sheer number of cars and drivers who are all trying to get to their destinations as quickly as humanly possible, car accidents are a regular occurrence. Car accidents can occur in a number of ways. For example, two or more cars may collide, leading to massive damage and multiple injuries. Alternatively, one car may crash into a stationary object, or hit a pedestrian or biker. In each of these accidents, injuries can be very severe. For instance, victims may experience traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and injuries that last for an entire lifetime.
- Motorcycle Accidents. Motorcycles are extremely fun and freeing vehicles to ride on. Unfortunately, motorcycles are very unprotected and hard for other vehicles on the road to see. When a car changes lanes without checking their blind spot, they risk running into a motorcyclist and causing a devastating accident. Further, motorcyclists who drive in inclement weather may lose control of their bikes and slip into traffic or a guard rail. Motorcycle injuries are often very devastating and can lead to issues from which a victim may never fully recover.
- Birth Injuries. Luckily, most doctors involved in the birth process are committed to the health of the baby and the mother. That being said, there are some doctors who are either distracted, not taking their jobs seriously, or just having a bad day when a baby is being delivered. In these cases, birth injuries can occur. Birth injuries can set a child up for a lifetime of disabilities which can decrease his or her job prospects and lead to a life of difficulties.
- Defective Medical Devices. Every day, it seems like there is a new story about a defective medical device. For instance, there may be a CPAP that is linked with lung cancer, or another device that simply doesn’t do what it promises. In these cases, victims can suffer injuries and issues that lead to losses of potentially thousands of dollars in medical bills (or even more).
Personal injuries happen all the time. Unfortunately, many victims are unaware of their rights and often lose tons of money due to an injury. By contacting a skilled Queens personal injury lawyer, many of these individuals would have a better chance of overcoming the issues posed by their situation.
