Warren Personal Injury Law
Personal injury law exists to protect your rights regarding any injury you experience caused by the recklessness or negligence of someone else. The main purpose of the law is to restore, as much as possible, what the injured person lost, and to discourage others from committing the same offense.
A wide range of situations fall under the umbrella of personal injury law. Some practice areas that our attorneys cover in Warren include, but are not limited to, the following.
Premises liability and slip and fall
Slip-and-fall accidents account for over 1 million emergency room visits every year. These incidents fall under premises liability law for the following reason.
Basically, the owner or manager of a premises has a legal responsibility to ensure a safe environment for visitors. Failure to promptly tend to hazards such as icy sidewalks, unmarked wet floors, or broken steps could make him or her liable for an injury.
In 2018, in Michigan alone, there were 75,838 people injured in automobile accidents. In many cases, a driver was distracted. In fact, in 2015 nationwide, 391,000 people were injured as a result of distracted driving. Some other forms of negligence or recklessness while driving include speeding, failing to yield, and DUIs. An experienced attorney can help you find the factors that determine liability in your case.
Many automobile drivers fail to notice a motorcycle on the road. Others simply don’t have the same respect as they do for automobiles on the road. For these reasons and others, statistics show that motorcyclists are 29 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries than car passengers. Negligence, which can serve as the basis for a strong claim, can come in various forms, such as an unsafe left-hand turn, opening a car door in the motorcycle’s path, and speeding.
Commercial truck accidents
In 2019, there were 16,603 heavy trucks and buses involved in Michigan collisions. Commercial trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and therefore produce much force upon impact. Thus, very often these accidents result in serious, life-threatening, or life-changing injuries and incur extensive damages that may be recoverable.
Manufacturers have the legal responsibility to make sure that their products are safe. A defective product can harm or even kill an individual. Failure to detect a problem, correct the issue, or warn consumers could warrant a lawsuit for injuries suffered. Various types of product liability cases include prescription drugs, auto parts, toys, appliances, cleaning products, and electronics.
Each year more than 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs, with children aged 5 to 9 being the most vulnerable. These attacks can be frightening and usually result in scarring physically and emotionally. Treatment for dog bites can be expensive, but the owner of the dog could be liable for any injuries caused by his or her dog.
Nursing home abuse
When our loved one needs more care than we can reasonably give, we search for a facility that can provide such care. Sadly, sometimes that trust is betrayed and abuse occurs whether intentionally or through neglect. Forms of abuse include physical, sexual, emotional, and financial. Nursing homes can be liable for the actions of their employees.
Every employer has a legal responsibility to provide a safe work environment. Nevertheless, according to The National Safety Council, a worker is injured on the job every 7 seconds. The company may have workers’ compensation insurance, but the adjuster may only seek to minimize the cost of your claim. Other parties may also be liable for your injury. An experienced attorney can determine this for you.
Wrongful death occurs when someone is killed by an unintentional or negligent act (not including self-defense). Losing a loved one is emotionally devastating. When the loss is due to someone’s negligence, though, it may be possible to recover damages. Some common causes of wrongful death cases include pedestrian and bicycle accidents, medical malpractice, and violent acts.
