Common Causes of Personal Injury Accidents

While almost any incident can result in a personal injury, some accidents are more common than others. The personal injury lawyers in Taunton, MA, at our law firm have worked with victims involved in each of the following kinds of accidents and helped protect their rights to pursue compensation for their injuries.

Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle accidents include collisions involving cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, bicycles, buses, trucks, and electric scooters. If the driver of the vehicle was impaired, distracted, or disobeying the rules of the road—or was otherwise responsible for your accident—we can hold them liable for your damages.

In some cases, a local government can be cited for negligence if road hazards caused or contributed to your accident. Missing or broken warning signs, inoperable traffic lights, significant potholes, and other factors can play a role in vehicle accidents, as can poorly maintained equipment and manufacturing defects in the vehicles involved.

In all vehicle accident cases, we will work to show that the liable party breached their duty of care toward you and is therefore liable for your damages.

Slip and Fall Accidents

According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 800,000 patients are hospitalized every year following a slip and fall injury. The most common complications from these injuries are head trauma and hip fractures.

Those who own and maintain offices, apartments, and government buildings are responsible for keeping their premises safe for invited guests and the general public. If they fail to maintain parking lots, provide sufficient outdoor lighting, repair damaged stairway rails, clean up spills promptly, and post warning signage around hazards, they can be held liable after a slip and fall injury.

Premises liability can also apply when other accidents occur on a business or government entity’s property. For example, if there is a history of criminal activities around a business’s parking lot and that business fails to take corrective measures like putting in more lights or security cameras, you may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit against them if you are the victim of a crime in that parking lot.

Product Liability Cases

Product liability cases are filed when a victim is injured using a consumer product. Recent court cases have been filed by people injured by:

  • Defective medical devices
  • Drugs with harmful, unintended side effects
  • Children’s toys
  • Products containing lead paint or asbestos
  • Food products contaminated with bacteria or bits of plastic or metal
  • Defective, dangerous baby cribs and car safety seats
  • Upholstered furniture that presents a fire hazard
  • Tainted pet food

Product liability cases can be complicated and time-consuming. Our team can help by hiring expert witnesses with technical expertise to determine if product manufacturing standards were violated and if the product’s label and marketing mislead consumers about the potential risks associated with the product.

Medical Malpractice Cases

If you or a loved one was injured due to the actions or inaction of your healthcare provider, it may constitute medical malpractice. Our team can investigate the details surrounding your injuries and consult expert witnesses who can speak as to the actions a reasonable healthcare provider with similar training and experience would have taken in the same situation.

If your doctor, nurses, or other healthcare provider failed to provide an appropriate level of care, they can be held liable for the resulting damages.

PRACTICE AREAS

We deal with a range of injury cases and our team will help you fight for justice and maximum compensation if an act of negligence left you injured.
