We know navigating legal options, medical facilities, unexpected expenses, and more can feel daunting after an accident. When another person’s negligence or actions cause an injury, many victims wonder, “What qualifies as a personal injury case?”
Fortunately, qualifications are broad, making it easier for victims to seek the justice and compensation they deserve. Personal injury law provides a legal recourse for individuals who have been physically, emotionally, or financially harmed due to another party’s actions.
At Reyes Browne Law, we specialize in handling such cases—and we’ll work tirelessly on your behalf while giving you time to focus on your recovery.
A personal injury case typically involves an incident where someone is injured due to another party’s negligence. The most common types of personal injury cases include:
- Vehicle Accidents: Car, motorcycle, truck, and bicycle accidents often lead to personal injury claims.
- Slip and Fall Accidents: These injuries occur when a property owner’s negligence leads to injury on their premises.
- Workplace Injuries: Many injuries are sustained at work, often due to unsafe working conditions or lack of proper safety measures.
- Medical Malpractice: When healthcare professionals provide substandard care resulting in injury or death, there’s usually a case to be made.
- Defective Products: Injuries caused by faulty or unsafe consumer products often qualify.
- Assault and Battery: These are cases where intentional harm is inflicted by another person.
To qualify as a personal injury case, the plaintiff must prove the defendant (or other party) is at fault for the sustained injuries through intentional actions or negligence. Proving fault or negligence can come down to these factors:
- Duty of Care: The responsible party was legally obligated to ensure safety.
- Breach of Duty: They failed to meet this obligation.
- Causation: The breach directly caused the injury.
- Damages: The victim suffered quantifiable harm—either physical or emotional.
