What Events May Lead to a Personal Injury Claim?

A person has the potential to get hurt during almost any daily activity. Every time an individual leaves the house, they place their safety into the hands of other people. It is worth noting that not every injury can lead to a lawsuit, but a claim may follow anytime a person’s actions are the direct cause of harm to another. Common examples of events that might lead to a personal injury case include:

  • Slips and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Car, truck, or motorcycle wrecks
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Nursing home neglect
  • Defective products
  • Dangerous drugs and medical devices
  • Medical negligence, including birth injuries and wrong-site surgeries
  • Negligent security and other premises liability issues
  • Construction accidents
  • Workplace injuries caused by third-party negligence
  • Bus and boat incidents

A meticulous Harris Hill attorney can take the lead in evaluating the details that led to a personal injury and hold at-fault parties responsible for their actions. In addition, our attorneys are prepared to act quickly since New York Civil Practice Law & Rules § 214 states that most cases must move forward no more than three years after the date of injury.

Seeking Compensation After an Injury

One of the most vital things to know about personal injury cases is that most of them never need to go to court. The determination of the at-fault person in the accident is usually straightforward. Still, the injured party must be able to prove that every element of negligence is met, to receive compensation for their incident.

Negligence applies when a party owes an obligation to care for the well-being of another. When they fail in this requirement, and the person suffers an injury, the defendant is liable to pay damages. For example, drivers automatically owe a duty of care to other motorists and pedestrians on the road. If a driver fails to adhere to standard traffic regulations, such as refraining from driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they are breaching this duty. If their behavior results in a car crash and injuries, they could be held legally responsible for this accident and its resulting losses.

A Harris Hill personal injury attorney carefully examines every case from all angles and strives to understand how an incident has impacted an injured party’s life to create a demand package that properly reflects their needs.
