What Are The Common Causes of Personal Injury Accidents?

Even for the most careful among us, injuries and accidents are par for the course. Since people get injured all the time, it can be difficult to differentiate between a normal injury and one that warrants a personal injury lawsuit. So, let’s go over some of the most common causes of personal injury accidents and when to consult an attorney for damages. 

Auto Accidents

Especially in Florida, auto accidents are the most common type of personal injury accidents. Hundreds of thousands of traffic accidents occur in Florida each year, many of which cause debilitating accidents. 

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident due to another driver’s negligence, you may have a personal injury case. An experienced attorney can help recover compensation for:

  • Vehicle damages
  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages 
  • Loss of future earnings

On-Premise Injuries

An on-premise injury is an injury that occurs on another party’s property, such as a slip and fall accident or a trip and fall accident. It may result from the property owner’s negligence, either in maintenance, inspection, or supervision. The property owner may have been aware of the danger but failed to take action and follow important safety measures. 

A personal injury attorney can investigate and build a case against the negligent property owner and recover compensation for your losses.
