What Kinds of Accidents Can I File an Injury Claim For?

Essentially, any accident that was the fault of someone else and resulted in an injury opens that person up to liability. Keep in mind that this does not mean someone else needs to be present in order for them to be liable. If you were to fall in a sinkhole and hurt your leg, it is unlikely that you would be considered responsible if there were no warnings. Instead, the property owner would be liable for failing to alert you of the danger.

Some common accidents people file injury claims for include:

  • Motorcycle accidents – Motorcyclists do not have much protection on the road, and many drivers are quick to blame them for an accident. The truth is, motorcyclists are well-protected under the law, and there is a strong chance you can file a successful injury claim.
  • Dog bites and animal attacks – An animal under someone’s care that attacks you makes the person who owns the animal liable. These injuries can be very serious and could result in an infection if not treated quickly.
  • Product liability – Have you ever been injured by an appliance or yard equipment? Anything you buy should have been tested for safety, meaning an injury caused by these defective products makes the seller and manufacturer potentially liable.
  • Elevator accidents – Ensuring your elevators are safe and up to code are essential tasks for a property manager. These injuries can be serious, even life-threatening, and the victims almost always have grounds for legal action so long as they were not trespassing or tampering with the elevator.
  • Nursing home negligence – You trust a nursing facility to provide your loved one with the care and attention they need. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes live up the ethics they are expected to uphold. It is not unheard of for nursing staff to neglect a resident and, as a result, allow them to come to harm.
  • Wrongful death – An accident that results in the death of the victim is unspeakably tragic. The loved ones left behind have a heavy responsibility ahead of them. The people responsible for these accidents should help the surviving family by covering funeral costs, loss of income, and additional compensation for pain and suffering. Perhaps most importantly though, they need to come forward and take accountability for what their negligence has caused.

This is not an exhaustive list of accidents that may entitle you to legal action. You should consult with an attorney after any type of accident to find out if you can pursue compensation for your injuries.
