Personal injury lawsuits make up the majority of all civil litigation cases in the country.

Falls and slips

Falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries that are treated in emergency rooms in the U.S. every year. It has resulted in about 800,000 hospitalizations and 27,000 deaths, says the National Council on Aging (NCOA). In addition, the CDC says there are about 261,930 workers who sustained injuries from falls at work while 789 workers passed away from falling accidents in 2014. If you’ve been in a bad fall and wish to file a claim, get legal help.

Car accidents

About six million car crashes happen in the U.S. every year. On average, that means about one car accident is happening every 10 seconds. All these results in as much as 3 million injuries by the end of the year. Many of these injuries are permanent, resulting in devastating consequences and lifelong disfigurement. If you end up in one, make sure you hire a personal injury attorney to help you.

Other vehicle accidents

Aside from car collisions, accidents involving trucks and bikes are also common. If you’re a victim of an accident through the careless actions of the defendant, then hiring a lawyer can get you the justice and compensation you are wholly entitled to by right and law.

Medical malpractice

Every time you put your life in the hands of a doctor, you expect them to provide the best are possible. If their negligence or carelessness, though, has resulted in a misdiagnosis, harmful side-effects, medication overdose, health complications or death involving your loved one or family, getting the assistance of a personal injury is a must. A lawyer can help you get the maximum compensation you deserve. It’s not going to take the place of what you lost, but it can help you acquire the resources to move on and recover from the experience.
