Common Types of Personal Injury Claims

Common types of personal injury claims

If you have been in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may have been part of a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company. However, injuries from car accidents aren’t the only type of personal injury claims. Here are a few common types of personal injury claims we can help you with.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

At Carrollton Injury Law, we help clients with personal injury claims for:

Car accidents If you are injured in a car accident that isn’t your fault, you have a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company.

Truck accidents When you’re driving on the highway in the Dallas, Texas area, you will see a lot of 18-wheelers. Let’s look at some stats:

  • In 2020, there were 107,000 semi-trucks involved in an accident that resulted in an injury, and over 4,000 that involved death
  • Out of the people killed in a truck accident, 83% were in other cars or were bystanders

That means that if the accident was caused by the truck driver’s negligence, for instance, they may have fallen asleep, then all of those other people have injury claims against the truck driver’s insurance company.

Motorcycle accidents The most common motorcycle accident is when another driver turns left and crashes into the motorcycle rider, which means the motorcyclist is not usually at fault. The motorcyclist would then have a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company.

Drunk driver accidents Texas has the highest rate of deaths from drunk driving accidents of all 50 states. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a drunk driving accident through no fault of your own, a personal injury lawyer can help you get the most money from the other driver’s insurance company.

Pedestrian accidents A pedestrian accident involves bystanders, walkers, or bicyclists on or near the street who get hit by a car. In just about every case, the car driver is at fault, which means the pedestrian has a personal injury claim.

Rideshare accidents Anyone can get into an accident, even Uber and Lyft drivers. If you are a passenger in a rideshare program and you are injured in an accident, you can file a personal injury claim against the opposing insurance company. It can be confusing when multiple people and drivers are involved, but a personal injury attorney can simplify the process so you can focus on healing.

It’s Not Just Automobile Accidents

Dog bite injuries If you have been attacked or bitten by someone’s dog, we can file a personal injury claim against the dog owner’s insurance company.

Slip and fall injuries – If you slip and fall on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, you may have a strong personal injury claim. In Texas, property owners are required by law to make sure the property is reasonably safe for invited guests.

Premises liability injuries Premises liability law covers some slip and fall injuries, but it can also cover other injuries that happen on somebody’s property. If a homeowner or business owner is aware of a danger and doesn’t make any effort to prevent it and someone gets injured as a result, there could be a personal injury claim.

Wrongful death This is a preventable death due to the negligence or recklessness of someone else. Family members who are left behind have the right to seek justice on behalf of their loved one.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) A traumatic brain injury can be caused by blunt force trauma to the head, and can happen in auto accidents, by slipping and falling, or other accidents. TBIs are extremely serious and can change your life forever in an instant. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI from an accident, you may have a personal injury claim.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
