Common Personal Injury Cases Our Firm Handles
Various types of claims can fall under the umbrella of a personal injury case. A personal injury lawsuit focuses on whether the defendant breached their duty of care towards a plaintiff, which resulted in the plaintiff being injured. For example, if an airline were aware that one of their planes needed repairs, but they elected to operate the aircraft anyways, they would be liable if the lack of repairs caused an accident and injuries to some passengers.
The following is a list of common personal injury cases that the Kieklak Law Firm is willing to litigate for you.
Car accidents are often sudden and unforeseeable events that could leave a victim with long-term or permanent injuries. Common causes of car crashes include:
- Fatigued driving
- Road rage
- Poor weather
- Inadequate vehicle maintenance
If you were the victim of a car accident, it is important to gather as much information as possible regarding the accident. For example, you will want the negligent driver’s contact and vehicle information, statements from any available witnesses, and even the type of weather that may have contributed to the accident.
There are several types of injuries that a person could suffer due to a car accident. The injuries that a victim sustains is often correlated to the circumstances of the crash. For example, if a person is involved in a T-bone accident, it is likely they suffered some cuts or lacerations because the car window shattered on impact.
One of the most traumatizing experiences for a parent is to learn that their child suffered a serious injury because the daycare company they trusted failed to care for their child. Daycare injuries can happen for a number of reasons from allowing access to dangerous chemicals to failing to follow a parent’s instructions. However, one of the most common reasons that a child is injured at daycare is because their assigned caretakers failed to supervise the child.
If your child was injured due to the negligence of a daycare company, the child’s caretakers and the institution as a whole could be held liable for the injury.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are likely the most prominent type of personal injury claim. A slip and fall accident often happens because a property owner failed to correct a dangerous condition that was present on their property. For example, if a retail store failed to fix several potholes in their parking lot and a customer tripped and broke a bone, they may be held liable for the customer’s injuries.
In some circumstances, a landowner may even owe a duty of care to people who trespass on their property. As a result, a landowner should avoid being reckless when it comes to handling property defects.
There are various other types of personal injury claims that our firm is prepared to help you litigate:
- Nursing home abuse cases
- Medical device injuries
- Construction accidents
- Commercial vehicle accidents
- Product liability claims
- Medication errors and related malpractice claims
It is also important to note that a plaintiff that wishes to file a personal injury lawsuit does not have an endless amount of time to file their case. As a result, you should not delay in contacting our attorneys so that you can explore your legal options regarding your injury claim.
