Car Accident Lawsuits

Car accident law is a subset of personal injury law that deals with the legal responsibility, or liability, of one or more parties, for the costs and/or damages stemming from a motor vehicle collision. A car accident lawsuit is a civil lawsuit filed by an injured party against the person at fault for causing the accident. The injured party will typically be seeking compensation for any damages they have suffered, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Normally, car accident lawsuits are the result of a car crash with injuries and/or property damage. The victim is usually left with the responsibility of determining the extent of their injuries and what amount of damages they are entitled to. The process of recovering damages can be difficult and tedious. The victim must first identify all potential at-fault parties and then pursue them for compensation.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Medical malpractice law is the body of law that governs the rights of patients or their representatives to bring legal action against health care providers for negligence, which may cause harm to the patient. Medical malpractice law is designed to protect patients from incompetent physicians who could otherwise harm them if they are not held accountable

A medical malpractice claim may arise from many different situations, but it usually arises when somebody has been injured or has died because of a doctor’s mistake. The doctor may have missed a diagnosis or failed to properly diagnose a condition, prescribed the wrong medication, performed an improper operation, or any number of other negligent acts. Medical malpractice law is typically governed by state law in the United States, although federal law may apply in a limited number of cases.

Workers' Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that compensates workers or their dependents for injuries or illness arising out of and in the course of employment, and it is designed to provide some measure of financial protection to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illness. Workers’ compensation is most often obtained through employment by the employer, though some individual workers may purchase their own policy. 

Many states have laws mandating that employers carry workers’ compensation insurance, or imposing penalties for failing to do so. If an employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, injured employees may be entitled to receive benefits from the state’s Uninsured Employer’s Fund.

Premises Liability Lawsuit

Slip and Fall Lawsuits

Premises liability is a legal term for a person’s responsibility for the condition of their property that causes injury to another person. In general, if an owner knows that there is a dangerous condition on their property, then they have a duty to warn people about it. For example, if there is a pool of water on the floor in a grocery store, the grocery store must post signs to warn people of the danger.

Premises liability lawsuits are filed when someone is injured or killed on the property of another. These claims can arise from slip-and-fall incidents, animal bites or attacks, dangerous conditions on the property, and many other scenarios.

Product Liability Lawsuits

Product liability is a type of liability that applies to defective products. This means that the person or company who sold or manufactured the product is responsible for any injuries that the product might have caused.

A product liability lawsuit can be filed by anyone who was injured by the defective product, or by the family of someone who was killed. A plaintiff in a product liability lawsuit will need to show that the product was defective and that this defect caused the injury.
