One of the most common types of personal injury are Auto Accidents. This type of personal injury can have a wide array of results based on the circumstances of the accident. In accidents with injuries, settlements tend to be higher and cases can be processed much faster than other types of injury cases.
Defective products fall under 3 categories and are generally processed through something called a Mass Tort. Mass torts bring a large group of people together to file a lawsuit together. However, unlike a class action lawsuit, mass torts allow each claimant to make their case and receive their own settlement amount.
Employment law is the second most complicated type of personal injury case. This type of case requires a lot of proof of wrongdoing and At-Will Employment can make cases like wrongful termination harder to get through. This doesn’t mean that your case is likely to fail but it could take longer to settle. On the other hand, workers compensation and social security disability can be made a lot easier and faster with the help of a lawyer.
Medical malpractice is the hardest form of personal injury and one that will require a lot of proof and patience. These cases are often settled outside of court and in these cases can result in quicker settlements. However, cases that go before a court can be lengthy.
Premise liability is a personal injury case that allows individuals to pursue the insurance company of a business or another person. For instance if you were to be bitten by a dog at your neighbor’s house. Premise liability would not be suing your neighbor it’s collecting a settlement from your neighbor’s home owner’s insurance policy.
