Types of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury claims can stem from various types of incidents caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of others, whether the responsible party is an individual, a business, or even a government agency. Typical injury claims are based on traffic accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians. These accidents create a huge impact on victims and their families as well as the state. Per the Centers for Disease Control, traffic-crash-related fatality costs in South Carolina annually exceed 1 billion dollars. More than a thousand people in the state lose their lives every year in motor vehicle accidents which are considered preventable.
Other personal injury claims may be based on construction accidents, dog attacks, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, premises liability, defective products, drug injury, sexual abuse or other scenarios. Understanding the nature of your case, your rights, and legal options is the first step in resolving your situation. You may be justified in pursuing legal compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages or income, vehicle property damage, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and similar damages. With the help of an experienced lawyer at Howell & Christmas you can receive the legal guidance and support you need.
