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.

Product liability

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.
