The personal injury universe: accident catalysts many and diverse

On Behalf of | May 18, 2021 | Car Accidents

How does a drunk driver speeding down an Orange County roadway relate to the proverbial banana peel laying unnoticed on a grocery store floor? Is there a direct connection between a large commercial truck with bad brakes and a faultily designed consumer good with an elevated fire risk? What might an aggressive dog have in common with an inoperative traffic signal at a busy intersection?

Bottom line: Although none of those share a close connection, obviously, they are all linked together as potential or actual catalysts that play direct roles in contributing to personal injuries in the general public.

Injury sources broad-based, often spurred by third-party negligence

Modern life is a complex and fast-paced arena. People are always on the move. There are always places to go and things to do. Moreover, we are denoted as consumers for an obvious reason; legions of us engage in close and personal interaction with ever-multiplying goods and products.

That flow and movement gives contemporary life a certain buzz and excitement. Notably, though, it also elevates daily risk and often engenders heightened personal injury concerns.

Those were generally alluded to at the beginning of this blog post. Its opening paragraph underscored the sheer scope of injury-causing agents and scenarios. Here are just a few injury contributors:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian mishaps
  • Animal attacks
  • Premises liability incidents (e.g., slips, trips and falls)
  • Product liability/defective goods
  • Accidents occurring on public property

Common post-accident concerns for injured parties

Persons suffering personal injuries owing to negligent acts or omissions often deal with truly challenging matters in the aftermath. Harms suffered are often catastrophic, with injuries such as these being common:

  • Severe head trauma (traumatic brain injuries)
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Contusions and lacerations
  • Burns, scarring and disfigurement
  • Neck, shoulder and back injuries
  • Spinal complications/paralysis

How proven legal counsel assists injury victims and loved ones

It is understandable that an injury victim can feel powerless and vulnerable in the wake of an accident. Things are complicated. Insurers can be – indeed, often purposefully are – difficult to deal with. Facts can be challenged. Pain and recovery must be focused upon.

A proven and compassionate personal injury legal team duly appreciates that and makes unstinting efforts to help injured individuals fully safeguard their legal rights. Personal injury attorneys with a demonstrated record of advocacy focus on securing maximum compensation for their valued clients relevant to the following and additional needs:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost earnings linked with an inability to work
  • Necessary rehabilitation/therapy
  • Emotional distress
  • Property loss

Accident victims have rights. Experienced and diligent personal injury attorneys can help secure them.
