Motor Vehicle Accident.
Each year millions of people are injured, sometimes fatally, in motor vehicle accidents. In 2020 alone, over 2.9 million people in the United States were injured and 38,680 people killed in accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, pedestrians, and bike riders (https://crashstats.nhtsa.dot.gov/Api/Public/ViewPublication/813115). If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your personal injuries and financial loss. The knowledgeable car accident attorneys of Harsh Law will safeguard your rights throughout the legal process.
The phrase “wrongful death” refers to a legal proceeding in which someone is harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence. Wrongful death claims are brought in the aftermath of automobile and vehicle accidents, nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, building catastrophes, airline disasters, or the use of an unsafe or hazardous product. A wrongful death lawsuit allows for the recovery of damages that are unique and distinct from those available in a case involving non-fatal injuries.
Premises liability refers to injuries caused by a hazardous or faulty condition on someone’s property. Almost any location, from commercial enterprises such as grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, malls and retail shops to a neighbor’s home or a public or private swimming pool, may be responsible. A “premises liability” case can be filed if a wide range of bad or hazardous situations give rise to a claim for premises liability, ranging from falling down a flight of stairs due to a missing handrail to tripping over an impediment or slipping on a spill in the walkway, to being bitten by a dog. It is critical to document the dangerous or defective condition as soon after the accident as possible.
Additional Personal Injury Case Types.
Less common personal injury lawsuits may include nursing home abuse or neglect, aviation and boating accidents, product liability, animal attacks and dog bites, food poisoning, hazardous material exposure, and catastrophic accidents.
