How Much Compensation Can I Receive for My Injury?
Every personal injury is assessed by the courts on a case-by-case basis. It’s common for victims to receive damages for past and future medical expenses directly related to injuries due to the accident. You may also receive lost income based on the number of days you were unable to work and future loss of earnings if you will be permanently disabled due to the accident. The court may also award you damages for your pain and suffering and punitive damages if the party at fault acted egregiously.
What Kinds of Personal Injuries Can I Get Compensated For in Leitchfield?
You should seek counsel from a PI attorney in Leitchfield if you have suffered any of the following injuries.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Also called trip and fall or slip, trip, and fall, an injury that occurs because of a dangerous obstacle or due to something defective on the property is a slip and fall accident. If you suffer such an accident, you have the legal right to claim against the property owner or, in some cases, the renter where the accident occurred.
You may suffer a personal injury from a vehicle accident as a driver, pedestrian, or bicyclist. Motorcycle accidents are particularly dangerous because drivers of other vehicles often fail to see riders. However, car accidents are also common, simply due to the amount we all use our cars. Most devastating of all tend to be truck accidents.
Although dogs make great pets, not all owners are responsible. A dog attack can lead to serious injuries.
Other Personal Injuries
You should also consult with a PI attorney if you have suffered another type of personal injury, such as medical malpractice or a worksite accident.
Slip and Fall FAQs
Many people have doubts about slip and fall accidents that can even lead them to forgo filing a claim. To help you understand better if your accident was a slip and fall, and whether you likely have a case, let’s explore some of the most-asked questions.
Are Slip and Fall Accidents Common?
In the United States, falls are the leading cause of accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30 million people fall every year, and as many as 30,000 die as a result of their injuries.
Where Can a Slip and Fall Accident Happen?
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, both on public and private property, indoors or outdoors. Typical locations include:
- Moving walkways
- Parking lots
- Polished floors
- Wet surfaces
- Office buildings
If I Fall on Someone’s Property, Will They Have to Pay for My Injuries?
If you have an accident, the property owner (perhaps a homeowner or business owner) won’t necessarily be held legally responsible — you must be able to show that the property owner was negligent in some way. All types of properties must be free of hazards and maintained in a reasonably safe fashion. If the hazard is avoidable, such as in the case of construction work or demolition, the area must be cordoned off and there should be a warning that declares the area hazardous.
