Common Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits
If you’ve been injured in a no-fault accident, you may be wondering if you should speak to a personal injury attorney. The answer to that question is a resounding “yes.”
For this blog post, we wanted to discuss some of the more common types of cases that Naples law firms handle.
When people are injured when they use a product, and they’re using the product as intended, they may be eligible to file a product liability claim.
In the past several years, there have been a few stories in the news about people who have been seriously injured by vape pens. In June of this year, Forbes, The Washington Post and Today.com ran a story about a teen who have a vape pen explode in his mouth. Not only did the force knock out several teeth, it also shattered his jaw. Even the boy’s doctor told a reported that he had no idea that vape pens could explode and cause this type of damage.
Although this case is an extreme example, if the family decides to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, they may be entitled to damages for medical care, ongoing care, pain and suffering, etc.
Car accident / motorcycle accident
If you’ve been in an accident that was caused by drunk, drugged or distracted driver, you’ll want to speak with an attorney to determine if you have a case. This is especially true if you sustained whiplash, a concussion, broken bones, bruising or other types of injuries.
Slip and fall
People who have been injured because of a slip and fall incident may be entitled to damages, but this will largely depend on what caused the incident. If you’re visiting a neighbor who had recently changed his motor vehicle oil, and you fell on their driveway because they didn’t clean the oil off the pavement, you may have a case. On the other hand, if you fell because you slipped in a puddle on their patio, during a rainstorm, it’s unlikely that a case would be successful.
