Types of Injuries Caused by Negligence

injuries caused by negligence

At the Philadelphia law firm of Philly Justice, we are committed to providing aggressive, competent legal representation to those who have been hurt as a result of the negligence of another person or entity. In our many years of acting as advocates on behalf of victims, one thing that we have seen over and over again is that most people don’t recognize that negligence has taken place or realize that their rights have been violated. There are many types of injuries caused by negligence, and whether you have been hurt in a car accident, have been injured by a defective product, been involved in a slip and fall or accident at work or while on somebody else’s property, if you’ve been hurt and you think it might be because of somebody else’s carelessness, you deserve to have somebody stand up for your rights.  The lawyers at Philly Justice will help you get the compensation you deserve to help pay your medical expenses and other damages.

If you’ve been in any type of accident, the first thing that you need to take care of is your own health and wellbeing, as well as that of any others who may have been with you. You need to seek medical attention, even if you don’t think that you’ve been injured. But once you are stable and safe, if you’ve been injured or suffered any damages you need to take a close look at what happened to you to see whether it was the result of somebody else’s negligence. Negligence is defined as when a person or entity acts in a way that is careless or reckless and results in somebody else being injured. Simply being careless is not enough – there are plenty of people who act carelessly and who are lucky enough to have no negative repercussions ensue. But if damage is done and somebody is hurt, then the person who is negligent can be held legally responsible for their medical expenses, any wages that they lose as a result of their injury, any property damage, and in some cases for the cost of their pain and suffering.

As personal injury attorneys, we know that some injuries are out of our control. We also know that there are a number of serious types of injuries that are caused by negligence. We have successfully represented those injured in automobile accidents, those hurt in workplace accidents, those injured on other peoples’ premises as a result of poor maintenance, and those injured by defective products.  We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the specifics of what happened to you. We will ask you all the right questions and give you the answers you need to help you determine what your next steps should be, and to let you know if you are eligible to file a claim against those responsible for your injuries.
