Motor Vehicle Accidents
One of the main causes of serious personal injuries is motor vehicle accidents. These include cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, and other modes of transportation. It is estimated that a vehicle accident occurs every ten seconds in the US, and is the leading cause of all injuries for people under the age of 35.
Although there have been many improvements in vehicle safety, such as airbags and rollover bars, the severity of injuries in motor vehicle accidents continues to remain steady.
Hiring an experienced car accident attorney to get you compensation quickly is in your best interest.
Premises Liability Accidents
Slip and fall injuries can be the result of poor maintenance at places of business, public transportation stations, or other public areas. Construction workers are often injured on the job. These injuries can be not only serious, but crippling to employees, shoppers, or even bystanders and passersby. Property owners and property managers have an obligation to keep these premises free from harm or unnecessary risk. When they don’t and someone is seriously injured, that property owner has a responsibility to pay for any damages.
A serious personal injury can happen virtually anywhere with very little warning. When this happens, you should know that it is your right to seek compensation.
