Types of Personal Injury Cases That Can Happen in Southeast Atlanta
A personal injury claim involves seeking compensation from the person who negligently or deliberately hurt someone else. The claim may result in a demand or lawsuit, and occasionally lawsuits proceed to trial. Personal injury claims can arise from many situations, including the following common types of accidents:
- Car or motorcycle accidents and truck accidents, especially those that happen on interstate highways like I-85, I-20 and I-285;
- Slip and fall injuries, which can lead to premises liability;
- Products liability cases, where a defective product breaks and hurts someone.
Whenever any of these accidents happen, there is a victim who has been hurt through no fault of their own. They deserve at the very least to have their losses and financial expenses covered by the negligent party who hurt them.
