In the event you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, you want to get reimbursement for your damages, right? Some people assume that personal injury attorneys only handle car accident claims, which is not true. Some firms may focus most of their attention on vehicle accidents, but there are a number of other types of “accidents” that fall under the heading of personal injury claims as well. And, if one of these incidents happened to you, you have a right to pursue reimbursement for items like your current and future medical expenses, property damage, current and future loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and more.
When you pursue a personal injury claim, you can bet there will be an insurance adjuster and possibly the insurance company’s attorney trying to pay out as little as possible, or not pay anything at all. This is why you need a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney on your side. At Pincus & Currier LLP, our expert attorneys will build a strong case that proves the other party’s negligence and their responsibility to you. We can represent you in both negotiations and formal litigation with the insurance company to settle the case or take it before a jury if necessary, in order to help get you the compensation you deserve.
Types of Personal Injury Claims
Here is a look at a few other types of personal injury claims — aside from car accidents — where a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney can help:
- Slip and Fall Accidents — Property owners have a duty of care towards others they invite to their property or who have a lawful reason for being on their property. This may require that the property owner keep it safe, fix hazards, provide security, and more. Falling down in a grocery store due to a hazard on the floor is one example of a slip and fall accident.
- Product Liability — Did you use a product that turned out to be unsafe? What about one that contained a defect in its design? A product manufacturer has a duty to sell products that are safe and function as intended. Failure to do so could result in a strict liability claim. The three main claims here are design defects, failure to warn, and manufacturing defects.
- Dog Bites — Dog owners could be held strictly liable when their dog attacks someone else and causes injury. This is regardless of whether or not the owner had any prior knowledge that the dog was dangerous or might bite someone.
- Medical Malpractice — Doctors and medical professionals are held to a higher duty when it comes to care and competence for their patients. Failure to act in a manner that is at the same standard as others in their profession could make him or her liable for medical malpractice. Surgical mistakes, birth injuries, and misdiagnoses are just a few of the situations that fall under medical malpractice.
