- Injury due to the negligent operation of a vehicle. Automobile accidents are the most common, but other examples are airplanes, buses, motorcycles, etc.
- Slip or trip and fall.
- Injury from a defective product or medical device.
- Injury due to the negligence of a professional. Medical malpractice is the most common, but architects, engineers, lawyers, accountants, etc. all qualify.
- Dog bites.
A person injured in a serious accident can potentially sue for the injuries and damages sustained. Each state has different laws that may affect the parties sued and the damages that can be obtained.
Compensation can be based on fault, no-fault, or a blend of each. Different laws may apply depending upon several factors, including the exact nature of the accident, the location of the accident, the residency of the parties, and the negligence involved.
