Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle at Our Pawtucket Office
If you or someone you love has been hurt because of another person's negligence, recklessness, or illegal conduct, you should not have to bear the costs of your recovery. Personal injury claims seek to compensate injury victims for economic damages, such medical expenses, property damage and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and mental anguish. A wide range of incidents and circumstances may give rise to a personal injury claim, including but not limited to:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck and bus accidents
- Hit and run accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Uninsured motorist accidents
- Child personal injury
While some personal injury claims arise from another person's recklessness, wrongdoing or illegal act, most personal injury lawsuits are based on a theory of negligence. For purposes of legal claims, negligence is generally when a person or entity breaches a duty they owe to you as a consumer, for example, the duty to drive safely, the duty to supervise children while they are at school, or the duty to maintain a safe environment for shoppers and restaurant diners.
In order to sustain a successful legal claim for negligence, there must be an injury or damages and someone must have committed a negligent act. The act may be a positive act, such as rear-ending another driver, or an act of omission, such as a failing to clean up a spill at a grocery store. Damages can range from property damage to catastrophic injuries, such as head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, or even wrongful death.
