Personal injury is an area of the law that covers a variety of different situations. Generally, people file a personal injury claim when they have been injured due to the reckless, careless, or selfish actions of another person. When you are faced with a personal injury claim, it is essential to hire an attorney who specializes in this area of the law and is familiar fighting for the rights of people like you. At Emerson Straw, we have experience representing clients facing a variety of personal injury suits, but three of the most common include:
- Auto Accidents: Each year there are millions of auto accidents across the U.S. From reckless driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol to distracted drivers texting or talking on the phone, it is no surprise that this number is so high. When you are involved in an auto accident with a car, truck, or motorcycle, that is not your fault, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries, lost income, and emotional trauma.
- Medical Malpractice: Another common personal injury claim is for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals make devastating mistakes which lead to patient injury or death. Examples of medical malpractice include failure to diagnose, surgical errors, defective medical products, and prescription drug errors.
- Product Liability: Thousands of people are injured every year from defective, dangerous, and poorly labeled products. When products have a flaw because of a design or manufacturing defect, or if they lack proper warning labels and instructions, they can cause serious injuries and in worst cases, death.
