When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence or wrongful conduct, navigating the legal system and getting the assistance you need can be challenging. Personal injury attorneys can guide individuals through these stressful and often overwhelming situations with personal attention and practical advice.

Personal injury lawyers often represent clients in cases such as these:

Car crashes

including rollovers, rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, and more. No matter how cautious and attentive you are, car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. One minute your day is going as planned, and the next, you’ve been t-boned by someone who ran a stop sign. That accident caused by a distracted or impaired driver can turn your world upside down. If you’ve been injured in a car accident and someone else was at fault, you could be entitled to receive compensation for your accident-related damage and harm, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damages
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earning potential

Truck collisions

involving speeding trucks, overloaded trucks, impaired truck drivers, and more. Attorneys frequently represent individuals in personal injury cases caused by truck accidents in a wide variety of circumstances, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Unsecured loads
  • Failure to adjust for bad weather or poor driving conditions
  • Poor truck maintenance

Motorcycle crashes

caused by texting teens, drunk drivers, and others. The freedom of riding a motorcycle offers a certain appeal. Still, without the protection that enclosed motor vehicles provide, motorcycle collisions and other accidents can lead to even more severe injuries.

Product liability

claims involving defective or dangerous items. People typically expect the products they purchase to be safe to use, but sometimes certain products are sold despite being manufactured incorrectly or poorly designed or manufactured improperly. Individuals who have been injured by dangerous or defective products can recover the compensation they deserve by pursuing a product liability lawsuit with the help of an experienced attorney.

Dog bites and animal attacks

can occur no matter how beloved a domesticated pet may appear to be, as some companion animals never lose their animalistic instincts. Moreover, individuals may negligently house wild animals without regard to local laws. Attorneys recognize that domestic animals attack innocent adults and children frequently, causing injuries or even fatalities. These attacks can leave victims with severe injuries, potentially resulting in life-long impairment, excessive medical fees, and lost wages from missed work. These attacks are often entirely preventable and result from a caretaker’s negligence. A pet or wild animal owner or caretaker who fails to act responsibly to prevent an animal from attacking may be liable for the injuries caused to another individual.

In all of these cases, attorneys will work closely with you, learning about your injuries and your unique circumstances. They’ll delve into how you were hurt and what you need to heal and move forward with your life. Personal injury lawyers design customized representation strategies that are created with your best interests in mind. Throughout the entire legal process, your attorney will strive to remain accessible and keep you involved, answering your questions and providing frequent updates on the status of your case until it’s resolved.
