Unexpected Ways To Get Hurt

Personal injury lawsuits arise when someone else’s carelessness or negligence causes another person harm. This can include both intentional and unintentional acts.

Below, we want to cover some of the ways that personal injury cases arise, though this is not an all-inclusive list. Please note that many personal injury cases are combined with other types of cases (premises liability, medical malpractice, product liability, etc.).

  • Many people are hurt in workplace accidents and are either denied workers’ compensation insurance or they are injured by a third party, making them eligible to pursue further compensation. Most workplace injuries are preventable and happen due to other worker or employer negligence.
  • Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the US, killing an estimated 250,000 or more people annually. These can happen due to diagnostic errors, surgical mistakes, medication errors, infections, etc. Medical mistakes can increase the amount of time a person has to spend in the hospital, therefore increasing their medical costs.
  • Violent acts are usually criminal cases, but they can be civil cases as well if the victim or their family members sue the person or people responsible. This can include cases of assault such as CDV, gunshots, muggings, etc.
  • Faulty products can cause major injuries and illnesses in the US each year. A quick look at the government website that tracks all current recalls shows us that there are thousands of faulty products currently on the market.
  • Drunk and distracted drivers can cause major injuries to passengers in other vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. In Utah’s latest reporting year, there were almost 2,000 alcohol-related crashes that injured more than 1,000 people.
