5 Most Common Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits
Turning on the news on any given morning or evening will tune you into the fact that accidents and injuries seem to happen all the time in our world. Some people claim that the world is a less safe place than ever before and while no one can confirm if this is true or not, it definitely seems like it. At any rate, the nature of problems seems to change with time and so now there are numerous different kinds of personal injury cases that are more popular than other. These cases lead to lawsuits, as those injured seek restitution and justice for their injuries.
The most common type of personal injury lawsuit in the world today is automobile accidents. This is partially due to the wide spectrum of possible injuries and incidents that can result from this. The spectrum of auto accidents also includes motorcycle and trucking accidents, with pedestrian accidents being in a slightly different, but related category. Auto accidents tend to be worse than other kinds as well, but there is a range of possibilities here as well, from minor fender benders to multi-car pileups.
Beyond auto accidents, other common types of personal injury lawsuits come from a variety of sources. Tripping accidents are common and occur when a business or other kind of property is negligent of safety conditions and causes people to get hurt while on premises. Accidents at work can be considered personal injury claims if the incident was caused by another person’s actions and not an individual’s accident. In some cases, people will file a lawsuit against a company that causes injuries through a defective product, which is commonly called a product liability case. Lastly, assault claims can also fall under personal injury claims, but can also overlap with the criminal justice system depending on the circumstances.
Overall, there are a number of different kinds of personal injury lawsuits that people file to seek justice for their troubles and harm.
