What Types of Accidents and Injuries will a Personal Injury Lawyer Take On?
There are many types of personal injury claims, most of which fall under the headings of motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice, product defects, construction accidents, premises liability, catastrophic injury, aggravated assault and abuse, food poisoning, animal bites, work-related accidents, and others. The distinguishing factor is not so much how the accident occurred or what type it is, but who was ultimately responsible. If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, and the responsibility lies with another party due to negligence, recklessness, or carelessness, you will likely be entitled to compensation for your injuries, losses, and suffering. For general purposes, an overview of the most common personal injury cases follows:
Slip and Fall Accidents
If you have been injured in an auto accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to significant remuneration for your injuries. When another party has caused you to be injured due to their own negligence or recklessness, the resulting medical bills, losses, and pain and suffering are not yours to absorb. The other party should be held responsible for paying all related medical expenses, compensate you for pain and suffering, and cover any lost wages, benefits, as well as future earning potential that the accident and ensuing injuries have cost you.
Trucking accidents are often severe in terms of the injuries they cause, and catastrophic injury is not uncommon when an 18-wheeler is part of an accident. If you have sustained an injury in an accident involving a truck, a lawsuit to recover your losses may be appropriate. Jimmy Chong is a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer who is experienced with trucking accidents and familiar with the laws that apply in Pennsylvania and in Delaware. Attorney Chong knows how to manage truck accident cases where there may be more than one party who is liable, such as the truck driver, the trucking company, the corporation that operates the truck, the insurance companies, and any other defendants who may have contributed to the accident in which you suffered harm.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often leave victims severely injured or dead. Without the protection provided by the body of an automobile, motorcycle riders are extremely vulnerable to injury, as well as the heightened risk due to drivers who fail to adequately watch out for motorcycles on the road. Jimmy Chong is an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Philadelphia, and such specific experience is necessary in cases such as these due to the biases and complexities that often arise when a motorcycle and another vehicle are involved in an accident.
Slip and Fall Accidents;
Sometimes, when someone slips and falls in a public place, it isn’t anyone’s fault. However, when a Philadelphia or Wilmington property owner has been negligent in providing safe surroundings and person slips and falls as a result, the property owner is more than likely responsible. Part of the responsibility of being a property owner is ensuring that their property is safe so that there will be no obstacles that would likely cause injury to visitors. Slip and fall accidents can cause minor injury, and they may also cause severe, life-altering injury. The important thing to remember is that if you think the slip and fall was not your fault, it’s imperative to contact an attorney as soon as possible to begin an investigation before the property owner has time to alter the circumstances that led to the accident. Time is of the essence in crafting a solid slip and fall lawsuit.
An accident that results in death takes an exceedingly high toll on survivors-emotionally, and often financially, as well. A wrongful death lawsuit won’t ease the loss of your loved one from your life, but it may ease other areas that can become strained due to their absence. Financial recompense can replace lost income that is sorely needed to care for dependents of the deceased, and compensation may also be in order to try to rectify losses such as the companionship that will no longer be enjoyed. Sensitivity to surviving loved ones during this time is essential for an attorney to exhibit when handling a wrongful death case, and Wilmington wrongful death attorney Jimmy Chong possesses the appropriate mix of compassion for families and the aggressive determination needed for successful litigation.
When a person suffers a catastrophic injury, they face the future without the possibility of healing completely from the damage. Brain injuries that leave a person in an altered mental state, spinal cord injuries that may lead to paralysis, and other injuries that severely impact a person’s ability to continue living life as they knew it prior to the accident constitute a catastrophic injury. Because these claims are so complex and of incredibly high importance to the future quality of life for the victim and his or her loved ones, it’s essential to have an attorney who is experienced handling catastrophic injury lawsuits.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawsuit Benefit Me?
Depending upon the injuries you’ve suffered and the circumstances surrounding the accident, there are various types of compensation you may be entitled to receive, such as lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, medical expenses, and other compensatory damages. It’s important to remember that a personal injury lawyer is uniquely qualified to calculate what your actual current losses are, as well as what your future losses will likely add up to.
Even if you think the insurance adjuster is offering a fair or even generous, amount of compensation, be very wary of accepting a settlement without first consulting with a personal injury lawyer for this reason. In addition, when insurance companies know that a personal injury lawyer is handling your claim, they will often abandon the strategies typically used to minimize payouts and must rethink their game-a game that Attorney Jimmy Chong will not allow them to play when your well-being and recovery are at stake.
