When a person or entity has a reasonable expectation of providing protection to another individual, but fails to fulfill that duty, it may be considered an act of negligence. Personal injury lawyers can help clients who have suffered a personal injury to determine if the party accountable for that injury was negligent. By establishing the negligent party’s duty, breach of duty, and responsibility for the ensuing injury, you may receive financial compensation for your pain and loss. Below are a few circumstances of negligence in which you may be owed damages for your injury.
Personal injury lawyers can provide assistance for individuals who have been involved in car accidents. If another party failed to heed applicable traffic laws, or otherwise acted in an unreasonable manner that resulted in your personal injury, you are the victim of negligence.
On-the-job injuries occur when employees are put at risk and injured while performing job duties. Workplace injuries that could have been prevented through reasonable actions by the employer, such as injuries caused by extended periods of working at a non-ergonomic workstation, may be grounds for personal injury claims. Injury lawyers can help you seek damages for carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, or even heart disease if it can be proven that it was caused by your employer’s negligence.
Receiving negligent treatment that resulted in injury while in the care of a physician or hospital constitutes grounds for filing a personal injury claim. Doctors, nurses, and care centers may be liable for a number of negligent acts, including medication or surgical errors, misdiagnosis, and physical abuse.
If an individual fails to reasonably secure his or her pet and it causes you injury through biting or scratching, you can seek damages for your physical and mental trauma. Contact a negligence attorney to determine the financial compensation that you are owed for an animal attack.
