Personal Injury Claims: Common Causes
The fact is that every personal injury claim involves its own unique circumstances – and no two are ever exactly the same. Nevertheless, there are several categories of personal injury claims that come up most frequently, including:
- Traffic Accidents, Including Car, Uber, Lyft, Truck, Bus, Motorcycle, And Pedestrian Accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Accidents caused by negligent property owners
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Accidents that lead to specific kinds of serious injuries, including burn injuries, catastrophic injuries, electrocutions, paralysis, and amputations
- Wrongful death claims
In each of these categories, the at-fault party owed the injured party a duty of care that he or she failed to live up to, and this failure led to the injuries sustained.
Duty of Care
Personal injury cases hinge on the concept of duty of care, and this is a responsibility that applies in many different situations, including all of the following:
Motorists are responsible for driving safely in relation to the condition of the road and to the traffic all around, for following the rules of the road, and for being prepared for whatever comes their way. Motorists who are distracted, are impaired, are drowsy, speed excessively, or are aggressive behind the wheel are negligent motorists who fail to live up to the duty of care they owe others on the road, and they are often the cause of dangerous traffic accidents. Professional drivers, such as bus drivers and truck drivers, shoulder an even heftier safety burden that includes hours-of-service restrictions, zero-tolerance regarding impairment, and more.
Property owners and managers of stores, restaurants, and other kinds of businesses are responsible for keeping their premises reasonably safe for their customers, clients, and other guests. This duty of care extends to maintaining the property at a level of safety that is in keeping with the level of safety that other reasonable property owners maintain in similar situations. For instance, if most reasonable restaurant owners wouldn’t allow slippery debris to collect in their entryways, a restaurant owner who does allow this to happen may be found liable in the event of a dangerous slip and fall accident in the restaurant’s entryway.
Pet owners owe others the duty of care of controlling their pets and of preventing them from biting or otherwise attacking. Owning a pet is a serious responsibility that must be taken seriously in order to prevent dangerous accidents.
Proving the abdication of duty of care is often complicated, but it’s the most important step in recovering your full range of damages in a personal injury claim. Resourceful Los Angeles personal injury attorneys are well versed at succinctly pinpointing – and proving – fault in these important legal matters.
Your Full Range of Damages
Being injured as a result of someone else’s negligence can lead to wide-ranging damages that can have wide-ranging consequences in your life, including:
Let’s take a closer look at each.
Your Medical Costs
Even a relatively minor injury can wrack up medical expenses quickly, and if your injuries are serious, these expenses can be astronomical. Further, if your injuries are serious, it’s not at all uncommon to experience secondary health concerns and ongoing medical needs. In other words, it’s very important that you understand the breadth of your injuries before accepting a settlement offer from the insurance company – or you could be looking at a future of medical services that you’ll have to cover on your own. Your medical expenses can include all of the following:
These represent the basic categories of medical expenses, but each can expand significantly and can lead to long-term, overarching costs.
Your Lost Wages
Suffering a serious injury can lead to an extended break from work, which translates to lost earnings – just when you’re facing a steady stream of medical bills. Further, a serious injury can prevent you from growing your career as anticipated and to a diminished earning potential into your future. If the injuries you sustain affect your career trajectory, it can be more than just financially damaging. Because most of us derive an important sense of accomplishment from our careers, such a deviation can also lead to serious emotional obstacles.
Your Pain and Suffering
The physical and emotional pain and suffering that accompanies a serious injury that’s caused by someone else’s negligence can be nearly insurmountable. Facing the physical and financial consequences of your injury and the long and arduous path toward recovery ahead is difficult, to begin with, but when the difficulty is caused by someone else’s wrongdoing, it can make the matter that much more agonizing to process and overcome. Ultimately the pain and suffering associated with a personal injury claim can be one of the most difficult obstacles to handle.
