Types of Accidents
Personal injury cases can vary in category. In addition to car accidents, other common examples of personal injury cases are:
Extremely dangerous, the injuries from a motorcycle accident can be broken bones, severe internal damage, or traumatic brain injuries.
Similar to a motorcycle accident, bicycle accident injuries can be devestating. Remember to always wear a helmet!
Slip & Fall
Victims of slip and fall accidents have a fairly difficult road ahead of them. Many times it is very hard to prove that a party was negligent in these cases. Slip and fall accidents are very circumstantial so we highly recommend speaking with an attorney to see if you have a case.
In serious cases of negligence, a victim may be killed in an accident. Our firm has represented spouses and family members of these victims and helped them get justice for their lost loved one.
Many people wonder how a personal injury case is evaluated. Most of the damages recovered from a successful lawsuit are directly related to the medical bills and associated recovery from the injuries. Common examples of accident injuries and their associated impact on a personal injury lawsuit are:
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) - These injuries are life changing. In many cases, a person will never fully recover from a traumatic brain injury. It is vital that a person gets the best medical care they can if they have suffered a TBI, so they can be put on the best path to recovery. In California, Lawyers For The People knows best brain specialists, and can help you find the right person to help you recover.
Broken Bones - The pain and suffering from broken bones can be temporary, in lucky cases, or chronic. We highly recommend speaking with a medical professional so they can properly assess your long-term prospect for recovery.
Back Injuries - Damage to the back or spinal cord can be very dangerous. Injuries include numbness, herniated disks, or even paralysis.
What Should I Do If I Have Been Injured In An Accident?
Seek Medical Attention
The number one priority for any personal injury victim should be to talk to a doctor and work on a plan for treatment and recovery. Your health and wellbeing in the long term is vital. A doctor can also help you get your injuries documented, which will help in the future.
Gather Information & Evidence
Our recommendation for any potential personal injury client is to gather as much information as they can before they pursue a claim. Get the names and contact information for the at-fault party as well as any witnesses or responding police officers, get a police report or any other documentation on the accident, and talk to a doctor to get your injuries documented.
