What Are the Different Types of Personal Injury Cases?
There are many different types of personal injury cases; those that are most common involve transit accidents and slip and fall injuries. These accidents are often related to the negligence of other parties, who should be held accountable for the injuries caused.
- Transit Accidents – Personal injury cases may arise from car accidents as well as truck, motorcycle, bus and Metro accidents. If another party is found liable in a transit accident that has caused you injuries, our team can help you determine what type of compensation you may be eligible to receive.
- Premises Liability – Serious injuries can be caused by a property owner’s failure to keep the property in a safe condition for persons who use the property. When these serious injuries could have been prevented through improved property maintenance, such as more adequate signage or thorough landscaping, our team can help you determine if you should receive full compensation for your injuries.
Who Can Be Held Responsible for Personal Injuries?
Identifying the defendant in a personal injury case will require a detailed analysis of the events leading up to an injury, so it is important to keep a log of events and identify witnesses at the time of the incident, if possible. It might be found that multiple parties can be held responsible. For example, a truck accident might lead to damages pursued both from a trucking company and the individual driver, as both parties may share liability in the circumstances of the accident. Our team atThe Cochran Firm, D.C., will thoroughly investigate your case to identify all of the responsible parties.
How Is Compensation Determined?
Each personal injury case is unique, because there are many factors considered to determine the appropriate level of compensation. If you’ve been injured by the negligence of another, the best way to determine exactly what you are owed from a personal injury is by scheduling a consultation.
