There are a multitude of different types of cases that fall under the umbrella of personal injury. Pennsylvania Attorney Alvin F. de Levie outlines them all.
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — During the course of our lives, most of us have had our fair share of nicks, cuts, bruises and other types of injuries. Some of them are due to no fault of ours and could range from faulty products to negligence in service. Things that are out of our control and cause us injuries can be labeled as a personal injury.
Accidents can’t always be avoided, but when there’s evidence or can be proved that it could have been, there is a potential personal injury case on hand. In a single year, personal injuries in the United States exceed the 2 million mark. A majority of these are cases which exclusively require medical attention.
The list of cases that fall under the umbrella of personal injury is long. The following are the some of the most common types of personal injuries so that you are aware in case you or someone you know has been injured by any of these occurrences.
The risks that defective products can pose to our health are boundless. It’s ironic when you consider the number of 'safe' products advertised and available on the market today. A major category of these products is food. Food contamination by manufacturers can have various adverse effects.
Though these effects can be mild in many individuals, it can severely affect others. These effects are either because the food was contaminated with ingredients that people are allergic to, or that these contaminants weren’t part of the original constituents that should have been in the food. It could range from people being sick due to peanuts in their food when they are allergic to it, or to people with lactose or gluten intolerance.
People naturally trust medical practitioners to take care of their problems. Unfortunately, there are times when medical practitioners are negligent and make errors that could have been avoided. These errors that doctors make can vary from an incorrect diagnosis, wrong prescription drug, mistakes during surgery/childbirth, delay in treatment, and more.
Usually, the results of these mistakes are severe physical incapabilities which in some cases, can last for a lifetime. Consequently, the individuals victimized by these mistakes have no choice but to exercise their rights by employing the services of a medical malpractice lawyer.
Accidents Due to Crime and Abuse
Many times, we unknowingly become a part of a situation which we were never expecting. If you have ever been robbed or been sexually assaulted, for example, you can pursue a personal injury case. Child abuse and elderly abuse also come under the purview of personal injury law.
Despite the safety precautions that have been implemented in the US, road accidents are still unavoidable, because there are too many factors in play while driving. Motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and buses are constantly affected by accidents, which can sometimes be fatal. Also, most of the time, these accidents are due to human errors.
On the road, we often aren’t in a great mood, are tired, or just plain stubborn, and these could result in errors in judgment. A fender bender isn’t a huge deal, but severe accidents can leave victims disabled physically, mentally, and, in extreme cases, result in death. Compensations are mostly awarded to those affected. The guilty party in this scenario is instructed to cover all the damages incurred.
