4 Most Common Personal Injury Lawsuits
At Van Norman Law, we dedicate ourselves to serving you to ensure that you receive the compensation you need when it comes to a personal injury. But how do you know if your situation calls for a personal injury lawyer? Here are four of the most common personal injury lawsuits that might apply to you:
1. Product Liability
If you’re confused as to what this means, product liability refers to an injury caused by the malfunction, mislabel, and the like, of a manufactured product. For instance, if you ever found yourself burned while trying to toast a bagel in your brand new toaster, you’re legally allowed to file a personal injury lawsuit. While the severity of the situation varies from case to case, our professional team of lawyers can provide you with advice and guidance on how to proceed.
2. Worker’s Compensation
When it comes to a work related injury, the subject can become sensitive for everyone involved. Not only is there a fear that you won’t be able to return to work for an extended period of time, but you might also be concerned about the way your employer will treat you in the future. This type of injury should be taken extremely seriously, however, as your employer is legally obligated to ensure your safety. Even if your injury is small and easily treatable, be sure to document every conversation about the topic, as well as any doctor visits you make.
3. Medical Malpractice
Unfortunately, not everyone in the medical field makes the correct decisions when it comes to your health. Sometimes, mistakes are made and a doctor may give you the wrong diagnosis or put you on the wrong medication. They may have even failed at a ensuring a safe and sterile surgery. If you think or know that you have been wronged while receiving medical care, do not wait to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Your health should be one of your top priorities, and we will help you fight for proper compensation.
4. Vehicular Accidents
Every time you step into your car, you’re putting yourself in a situation where you can be seriously injured or killed. Don’t allow this to stop you from driving though, as many car accidents are relatively minor. They do, however, happen frequently. If you have been the victim in a car accident of any magnitude, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the person who caused the accident. Like all accidents, it is crucial to call a lawyer as soon as possible to resolve your case.
If you believe that you have been involved in any one of these common situations, or if you believe you have ample reason to file a personal injury lawsuit, do not hesitate to call us at Van Norman Law with questions and concerns at (480) 481-0616.
