Car accidents: Car accidents lead to numerous personal injury claims a year. Motor vehicles can leave victims with serious or catastrophic injuries and costly medical bills. If you were injured in a car accident due to the negligence of another driver, you might be able to file a suit against the other driver for your injuries and any property damage sustained.

Slip and falls: Slip and falls can happen due to dangerous conditions in a public place or on another individual's property. Slick floors, dimly lit rooms, cracks in the sidewalk, and other unsafe conditions can all lead to slip and fall accidents. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, you should be compensated for your injuries.

Defective products: When you purchase a product, you expect it to work in the manner it is intended to work. A product that is defective or comes with inadequate instruction can cause serious injuries and consequences. The company that manufactured the defective products may be liable for injuries inflicted in a product liability lawsuit.

Premises liability: A homeowner or business owes visitors a certain level of guaranteed safety. A premise liability personal injury case can come about when an individual gets hurt on someone else’s property due to an unsafe condition caused by negligence.
