Common types of personal injury claims
There are many different causes of personal injuries, and many stem from the negligence or reckless actions of another party. The following are some of the most common types of personal injury claims in Rhode Island:
- Auto accidents. Car, truck and motorcycle accidents all have the potential to cause injuries. In Rhode Island, there are thousands of crashes on our state’s roads and highways each year, and many of them result in significant injuries and property damage.
- Slip and fall accidents. Property owners have a responsibility to keep guests and customers reasonably safe. If they fail to protect visitors from dangerous conditions, their negligence could result in serious slip and fall accidents.
- Products liability. When manufacturers offer poorly designed or produced items to consumers, they can risk the health and well being of thousands or millions of people. If a product comes with certain risks, manufacturers must indicate the inherent hazards with warning labels or clear directions. In some situations, a product recall may be necessary.
- Workplace accidents. Employers must ensure that their workers are reasonably safe from hazards in the workplace. While some occupations, such as construction and manufacturing, are more dangerous than others, that doesn’t mean organizations can be negligent when it comes to employee safety.
What should you do after an injury?
After a slip and fall, car accident or dangerous product injures you or a loved one, getting medical attention is the first priority. Be sure to keep careful records of all doctor visits. As soon as possible, contact a trusted injury attorney, who can advise you on the next steps. Your lawyer will get right to work to determine the exact cause of your accident and pinpoint fault, and follow through by negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company or by taking your case to court, if necessary.
