If you have sustained injuries in an accident because of the negligent actions of another party, you may be wondering if you should hire an attorney. While you may be able to get answers to your questions from your family and friends, there’s only a limit to what information they can give you. So, if you want answers to personal injury FAQ, it’s best to speak with an injury attorney.  

Kinds of Cases Personal Injury Lawyers Handle

Personal injury attorneys work with a variety of cases. Generally, they help victims who sustained injuries due to the negligence of another party. Personal injury cases may include cases against, a big corporation, or several parties. The following are cases a personal injury attorney will take:

  • Motor vehicle accidents. Whether car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, or bike accidents, victims of these accidents can sustain serious and life-long injuries. A personal injury attorney will investigate these cases to collect evidence that can be used to strengthen the case of victims.
  • Premises liability issues. These cases cover injuries suffered on somebody else’s property. They can include places of business or personal residences. Every property owner must make sure their property is safe for guests or visitors. If somebody gets injured on their premises, the owner can be held financially liable for them. Premises liability cases include dog bites, slip and fall accidents, swimming pool accidents, and others. 
  • Product liability. Companies that manufacture or distribute products should make sure their products are safe before they are sold to consumers. If these products cause injuries or death to those who use them, the manufacturer or distributor may be accountable.
  • Wrongful death. If somebody else’s action or inaction resulted in another person’s death, the former may face both civil liability and criminal charges.
