Common Types Of Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury law is a unique legal discipline with a set of challenges and potential setbacks all its own. Individuals seeking personal injury representation are not only suffering from the injuries they have received; if you are seeking legal representation, it most likely means that you have suffered from the neglect of another. If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person, company, or organization, hiring a personal injury attorney at the Lake of the Ozarks can help increase your chances of getting the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.


Types Of Personal Injury Cases

There are several different reasons someone may need to seek legal representation for their injuries. Below are a few of the most common types of personal injury cases at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Work Related Injuries
Despite everyone's best intentions to create and maintain a safe working environment, accidents at work can (and do) happen. Workers' compensation is a type of insurance many employers are legally required to maintain, and if their employees are injured with a work-related injury, this insurance is intended to provide coverage for medical treatment, lost wages, and temporary and partial disability. Unfortunately, injured workers sometimes have difficulty getting their injuries covered by this insurance. A strong legal advocate can be very helpful in getting the compensation you deserve.

Car Accidents
Every car accident is stressful, with some being worse than others. Depending on the severity of the accident, the driver/passengers in one or multiple vehicles may be seriously injured. Steep medical bills, missed time from work, and reduced quality of life are just a few of the things these injured individuals may experience as a result of an accident. Even if you have automobile insurance, it may be important for the at-fault driver's insurance to pay for your damages.  A car accident attorney can fight for the compensation that you deserve so that you don't have to.

Medical Malpractice
We rely heavily on doctors and other healthcare providers to know what's best for us and to look out for our best interests. However, healthcare providers do make mistake from time to time.  Unfortunately, their mistakes may result in dire consequences. If patients are misdiagnosed or not given the treatment(s) they need, they can experience serious repercussions (including, in some cases, death). If a patient suffers unnecessarily at the hands of a healthcare professional, that patient may be eligible to receive significant financial compensation. If the patient passes away due to the healthcare provider's negligence, the surviving family members may still be able to seek compensation.

Premises Liability Accidents
Companies, businesses, and home and land owners have a certain duty to keep their premises safe for customers, clients, and guests entering their property. If you are injured while on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Premises liability cases can be challenging, but having a personal injury attorney represent you may be a huge asset.
