3 Common Types of Personal Injury Cases , Bronx, New York

Serious injuries occur every day. When someone is harmed as a result of another party’s negligence, they may be able to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim. Here are some of the more common situations that can be filed as personal injury cases.

Some of the Most Common Personal Injury Cases

1. Traffic Accidents 

Traffic accidents are the most frequent source of personal injury cases. Common causes of accidents include distracted driving, reckless operation of a vehicle, and driving under the influence. These claims can include any collision involving motor vehicles, commercial trucks, pedestrians, motorcycles, and bicycles. Victims can typically recover damages for expenses related to their injuries, as well as property damage.

2. Dog Bites 

personal injuryDespite their reputation as friendly companions, dogs are unpredictable and can act aggressively at unexpected moments. As such, dog bites are a common source of personal injury claims. Every state has its own laws when it comes to liability for dog attacks; in New York, owners are strictly liable for all medical bills incurred from injuries inflicted by a dangerous dog.

3. Slip & Fall Injuries

Victims can sustain severe and long-lasting injuries in a slip and fall. Such cases are filed when a property owner has neglected to maintain a hazard-free environment. Property owners are legally required to act in a reasonable manner that would keep others safe from harm. Slip and fall injuries can take place on the public sidewalk, in a private residence, or at a business.
