Types of Serious Injuries

Nobody wants to get hurt as they go about their normal daily activities, but we cannot control the actions of other people around us. Sometimes, unexpected things happen. Today, we will discuss some of the ways that people are injured due to other people’s negligence.

We know that you do not put much thought into getting hurt as you go about your daily routine, but there are many common ways in which personal injury cases arise. Today we will briefly go over some of them, but please know there are many other ways people get hurt. Always speak to a qualified attorney about your case.

Vehicle Accidents: California is a busy place and there are plenty of vehicle accidents. In fact, more than 12,000 serious accidents occurred in the latest reporting year. We often see spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, internal bleeding, and more as a result of these accidents, all of which can leave a person stuck with major medical expenses.

Dog Bites: Of the more than 4.7 million dog bites that are reported each year, the CDC says that 800,000 require medical attention. Dogs can inflict major soft tissue damage that requires surgery to restore function and appearance.

Slip and Fall Accidents: These accidents account for more than one million emergency room visits a year and are the most common way people get hurt on another person’s property. They often occur due to a property owner’s inability to keep a safe environment for their patrons.

Pedestrian Accidents: Did you know that more than 14,000 pedestrians were injured during the latest reporting year for California? Pedestrian injuries tend to be severe because they have no protection from vehicles.

Product Liability: Sometimes companies sell poorly designed products. Other times, something we buy is not labeled properly. Regardless of what makes a product faulty, we can become injured or ill if we use something that is defective.

Product recalls are a major concern across the US. We see news stories every night of a product being recalled. Sometimes it is a vehicle that catches fire, other times it is a food that is carrying E. coli or Salmonella. The website that tracks current recalls shows us plenty of dangerous foods, appliances, toys, cosmetics, medications, and more.

Medical Mistakes: We know that medical mistakes occur at alarming rates and are usually due to a healthcare professional’s negligence. This can include mistakes when dispensing medications, surgical errors, diagnostic mistakes, or a patient acquiring an infection.

Note: This is not a complete personal injury list. Please see a qualified attorney about your particular case before moving forward.
