What is a Personal Injury?

Personal injuries refer to physical, emotional, or fiscal harm suffered by an individual due to another party’s negligent actions. When a person suffers a personal injury due to the negligence of another party, it can serve as the basis for initiating a legal claim against that party.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

Here are some examples of common personal injury cases:

Motor Vehicle-Related

The National Safety Council (NSC) found that motor vehicle accidents account for 21% of preventable injury fatalities and 9% of nonfatal preventable injuries. This data makes sense considering the size, high rate of speed, and other dangerous variables and circumstances involved in driving or being around drivers.

Examples of motor vehicle-related personal injury cases include car, bus, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents.

Workers’ Compensation

When working as intended, workers’ compensation is a system designed to provide financial assistance to employees who suffer injuries or illnesses during the course of their employment.

However, in some situations, disputes may arise, such as denial of benefits or disagreement over the extent of the injury or disability. That’s where a skilled workers’ compensation lawyer can assist.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases involve instances where a healthcare professional or medical institution fails to provide the accepted standard of care, resulting in harm or injury to a patient.

Examples of medical malpractice cases can encompass the following types of injuries: catastrophic, burn, and spinal cord injuries.

Wrongful Death

If a negligence action leads to the victim’s death, even months or years later, the executor of the deceased’s estate (known as the personal representative under the Illinois Compiled Statutes) can pursue a wrongful death case.

All manner of personal injury cases and even criminal actions can yield wrongful death cases. A short list of cases that could cause wrongful death includes motor vehicle accidents, premises and product liability cases, and medical malpractice cases.
