Common Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury law, also known as “tort law” is a body of laws that allows a person that has been injured as a result of negligence on the part of another person or entity to seek compensation. There are many different accidents and events that can give rise to a case of this nature. There are a few kinds of personal injury cases that are quite common and usually result in the victim hiring Chicago personal injury lawyers to negotiate a reasonable settlement.

Vehicle accidents:

Vehicle accidents are by far the greatest cause of injury. In the majority of cases, accidents happen because someone was inattentive, not driving in accordance with the law or simply not driving carefully. The individual found to be at fault is expected to pay compensation to the victim.

Slip and fall:

Property owners must keep their premises safe. People that have been invited onto the premises have the right to expect that they will not be injured. If for example, you slip and fall due to a wet floor in a supermarket you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Dog bites:

If a dog bites a person, in the majority of cases the dog owner will be held financially responsible for any injuries. Although a settlement can often be reached between the parties, the person that was bitten will often have to hire Chicago personal injury lawyers to spur the insurance company into action.

Medical malpractice:

Medical malpractice cases are among the most complicated cases ever brought to court. Medical malpractice claims are made against any medical practitioner or medical establishment that fails in their duty to provide competent and reasonably skilled medical care and as a result of their negligence, the patient suffers injury.

These are just a few examples of cases where Chicago personal injury lawyers can help you get the compensation that your rightfully deserve.
