Family, friends, health and time. We value these things. When someone or something takes these things from us, it hurts. No one wakes up in the morning thinking they are going to be injured, but every day it happens. Sometimes the injury is minor or temporary. Other times, the injuries are more significant and permanent, or even result in the loss of someone we know. In each of these instances, something is taken. It may be your health or it may be the health of a family member or friend. Oftentimes, when health is taken, it is never fully restored.
Presser Law, P.A. fights for those who have been injured because those individuals deserve justice – they deserve the at-fault party taking responsibility for the damages they caused.
Personal injury is not limited to car crashes, or slip or trip and falls. Injuries happen in more ways than you are probably aware and can include:
- Open or closed head injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Amputation or loss of body parts
- Injuries requiring surgery to fix
- Broken bones
- Herniated discs
- Torn ligaments
Where & How Personal Injuries May Occur
A personal injury can occur from a variety of different sources. Some causes of injuries are more common than others but negligent actions by others are one of the leading causes of personal injuries. When someone is injured as a result of a car accident due to another driver’s error in judgment, reckless driving, or simply not paying attention to other drivers on the road then a personal injury case should be opened against them. No one should have to suffer through injuries without any form of compensation or justice. Contact a personal injury lawyer from Presser Law, P.A. today to get your case started and to hold the guilty party accountable for their poor actions. Other injuries may come from:
Construction Accidents – These types of injuries could occur from poorly maintained machinery or poorly trained employees. These injuries can also be severe with long-lasting injuries or even fatalities.
Workplace Incidents – Workplace injuries could happen as a result of many different factors. A slip and fall at work, an injury that happens over time to hurt limbs or muscles, or more may occur depending on the job.
Premises Liability Injuries – Whoever is in charge of a property is responsible for keeping that property free from any obstructions or safety hazards that may cause injury.
Bicycle or Pedestrian Accidents – When a vehicle collides with a pedestrian or bicycle rider the injuries can be severe.
Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcycle riders can sometimes be hard to spot by other motorists. When another vehicle collides with a motorcycle the injuries could be severe and it is strongly advised to look into a possible case against the guilty party.
Truck Accidents – Truck accidents are similar to car accidents, but the biggest difference is the damage that a truck can inflict on other vehicles and people. A collision with a truck could cause significant injury.
Product Defects – Products made incorrectly or with improper warning labels may lead to consumers utilizing the product in the wrong way. If it was incorrectly manufactured then it may possess a hazard to its user.
Nursing Home Abuse – Nursing homes have been known to come up short in a variety of ways. They sometimes fail to administer the correct medicines, the right amount of water, or the adequate amount of exercise time to their residents. This negligence can cause injuries. When staff are improperly trained or lack a high standard of care then they may also inflict injuries on their residents when attempting to move them from a bed to a chair or other places.
Medical Malpractice – Those in the medical profession are required to meet a high standard of care. When they do not meet this high standard it means that they may have misdiagnosed a patient, botched a surgery, prescribed the wrong medicine doses, or for other reasons.
