Many people think of personal injury cases as those that involve car accidents or slip and fall accidents. While these are the two most prominent types of cases they do handle, they handle other types of cases as well. In fact, Tampa Personal Injury Law Firms handle a variety of cases from dog bites to medical malpractice.
Dog bites that fall under personal injury occur when the dog’s owner is negligent in keeping their dog under their control. This could mean the dog escaped from the owner on a walk when the owner was not using a leash or when the owner knows, or should know, the dog can escape from the fence in the backyard. The dog’s owner may be liable for the victim’s medical bills and lost wages.
Wrongful death is a larger category that includes every other type of personal injury case where a person dies as a result of their injuries. These are often far more serious cases, but the evidence needed for them is typically the same as what’s needed to prove the basic personal injury.
Manufacturers and product designers have to make sure their products are safe to use or are appropriately labeled. If this doesn’t happen and a person is injured, the person may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries that result from the typical use of the product. This includes just about any type of product, from toys to medications.
Doctor’s are expected to uphold a basic standard of care. When they don’t, their patients could be injured as a result. This leads to a potential medical malpractice case and the ability for the patient to receive compensation for their injuries. These are complicated cases, however, and require the help of an attorney as it’s difficult for the case to be successful.
These are just a few of the types of cases the Personal Injury Law Firms might handle.
