Types of Personal Injury Cases
Negligence is at the heart of personal injury, although some cases involve malicious intent. Personal injury can occur in a variety of settings and industries. The following are a few especially common types of personal injury:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Products liability
Wrongful death occurs when a victim of negligence loses his or her life. In such cases, family members can sue responsible parties for medical damages, loss of consortium, and other forms of compensation.
The Personal Injury Process
The personal injury process may vary somewhat based on the type of case and the client’s preferences, but in general, it begins with an initial consultation. During this time, your personal injury lawyer will determine whether your case is likely to succeed. If your attorney chooses to proceed, the next step involves filing court papers. The defendant may file a counterclaim.
After the filing process is complete, both parties proceed with the discovery phase. During this time, attorneys examine evidence closely in order to present a more effective case. Motions to dismiss may be employed to end the case before it goes to trial. Personal injury cases commonly end in settlement, but if trial proves necessary, it is important to work with an aggressive firm that possesses exceptional negotiation skills.
