Common Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims can come in nearly infinite varieties, and no two are ever exactly alike. Some of the most common types of personal injury claims, include the following:

  • Traffic accidents of every variety, including car, truck, motorcycle, bike, pedestrian, e-scooter, and rideshare accidents
  • Wrongful death, in which the person who is injured by someone else’s negligence succumbs to those injuries
  • Vicious dog bites
  • Slip and fall accidents and other premises liability claims
  • Accidents that lead to amputations
  • Drowning accidents in pools

Whatever kind of accident leaves you injured, if it was caused by the negligence of someone else, you could have a viable personal injury claim.

Your Claim: The Process

If you’ve suffered an injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence, your claim will follow the same basic steps that every other personal injury claim does.

Filing Your Claim

The first order of business after seeking the medical attention you require and consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney is filing your claim with the at-fault party’s insurance provider. For example, if you slipped and fell in a grocery store due to the manager’s negligence in cleaning up a spill, you’d file your claim with the grocery store’s insurance company.

Building Your Case

The crux of your claim will come from evidence and information that you and your dedicated personal injury attorney compile. Evidence can come from you or someone standing by snapping pictures and videos at the scene of the accident, taking statements from eyewitnesses (and obtaining their contact information), recreating the scene of the accident, obtaining expert testimony, and more. While you tend to the difficult task of regaining your health and well-being, your resourceful personal injury attorney will craft your strongest case – in defense of your rights and in pursuit of just compensation that covers your damages in their entirety.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

While it is true that the involved insurance company is paid – in the form of the at-fault party’s premiums – to cover your damages, it’s never that easy. The insurance company, like every other company out there – is in the business of making money, which means that it will do what it can to keep its profits high and its payouts low. In this capacity, the insurance company may engage in any number of the following less-than-honest practices to help convince you to settle for less than just compensation or to walk away empty-handed:

  • The insurance company may deny your claim outright or lowball in the hope that you will give up.
  • The insurance company may make an early settlement offer in the hope that you will accept it out of sheer desperation – before you are fully aware of the full extent of your damages.
  • The insurance company may prolong or complicate the claims process to the extent that you turn and walk away out of sheer exhaustion.
  • The insurance company may attempt to shift blame away from the at-fault party and toward you (regardless of whether they have grounds for doing so or not).
  • The insurance company may attempt to cast doubt on the serious nature and extent of the damages you’ve suffered.

Negotiating with the insurance company is a job for your dedicated personal injury attorney – who is well versed in the company’s antics and has the professional negotiating skills to help you obtain just compensation.

Moving Toward Trial

Only if the insurance company refuses to negotiate with you in good faith will your personal injury attorney advise you to move forward toward trial. While the vast majority of personal injury claims settle out of court, this does not mean that you should shy away from court if it is the best path forward for you and your case.

Your Damages

The damages associated with a personal injury claim relate to your physical, financial, and emotional losses.

Your Medical Bills

The medical costs that are associated with a serious injury can be overwhelming. Further, serious injuries often require ongoing care that correlates with cascading expenses, and they can lead to secondary health issues. Common medical expenses include:

  • Emergency care and transportation
  • Surgery and after-care from wide-ranging medical professionals
  • Hospital stays
  • Pain management
  • Rehabilitation
  • Physical therapy and/or occupational therapy
  • Prescription medications
  • Adaptive physical devices
  • Home health care

Seeking the medical treatment you need, when you need it, is essential to your ability to fully heal.

Your Lost Income

If you’re recovering from a serious injury, it generally means a protracted hiatus from work, which – in turn– means lost earnings. Lost earnings can morph into lost earning potential and you could be looking at a tanked career altogether. Because our careers tend to play such a pivotal role in our lives, such losses can be emotionally and financially devastating.

Your Pain and Suffering

Being injured is physically painful, but it can also be emotionally painful. Suffering significant losses due to someone else’s negligence is not an easy experience to overcome, and the pain and suffering you experience can be debilitating.
