Injuries sustained in traumatic events or accidents can greatly impact the lives of victims. If you or a loved one have experienced an injury, it would be in your best interest to contact a ​​personal injury lawyer today and schedule a risk-free consultation.

While there are many reasons and situations why individuals experience injury, below is a list of common examples.

Car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury. With so many vehicles on the road these days, cars and trucks are likely to collide at some point in time. There are many factors that explain why car accidents occur. The main reason why accidents occur is because of the driver’s distraction. Phone usage is the largest source of distraction. The driver can call, text, facetime, search the internet, get directions, check their email, and scroll their social media all through their smartphone. All of this may cause the driver to become distracted, leading to mistakes on the road. The quickest moment of distraction may have devastating consequences for the driver, passengers, and others on the road. Driving a car is like operating a loaded weapon, and should not be done while distracted or tired. Distractions while driving may also include music, GPS, passengers, and eating. 

Another common type of personal injury example is a slip and fall accident. For example, an individual could walk across a hotel lobby, slip and fall on a freshly mopped floor and break their leg. If the hotel failed to have a sign indicating a wet floor, the injured victim would have a personal injury case. Due to the hotel’s neglect, the victim was harmed and may face surgery, outpatient treatment, prescription medication, and a hospital stay. All of these medical bills will be overwhelming for the victim trying to heal and recover. In this situation, the victim should contact a personal injury lawyer, such as those at Ward & Ward Law Firm to provide legal counsel. Experienced attorneys desire their clients to pursue justice, accountability, and compensation for their injuries and traumatic experiences.  

If an accident occurs, all parties involved should seek medical attention as quickly as possible. Even if individuals appear physically unharmed, there could be unseen injuries that could worsen over time, or even be life-threatening. Concussion and internal bleeding are examples of medical complications that are unseen but should be examined by a medical professional. Adrenaline is often present following a traumatic event or accident. Adrenaline is dangerous because it often masks pain, and the severity of injuries may not be felt until later. A medical evaluation will also prove valuable as evidence in the event that the victim desires to pursue legal action. Compensation for injuries sustained in an accident may include medical bills, emotional trauma, and loss of income or job. The legal process may seem overwhelming to those wishing to proceed with legal action. Thankfully, experienced personal injury lawyers are willing and able to help. They will advocate on behalf of their clients, striving for the highest compensation available. If you are in need of legal representation for a personal injury case, contact a lawyer today.
